I've been following your blog on this, and I must say its damn impressive and fantastic. I was thinking of attempting to make a suit myself following your guidelines, but I have no experience in prop/costume making. Would you recommend this as a first project? Or should I invest in learning some other skills first?
This is absolutely AMAZING. I can not wait to see the finished product. Your attention to detail is incredible. I love looking through all the images of the process you've gone through. Too bad you aren't doing helmets, but I understand the amount of work that would be involved.
Beautiful work. Thank you for sharing pictures with us.
These are coming along wonderfully. May I ask if you're planning on doing helmets? I always loved the ME helmet design, I think they managed to come up with a slick, recognizable design that still looks functional.
My N7 Armor blog at: [link] shows how I am working with the Foam. (check the older postings for some of the tools that I am using) After Dragon Con I will be making some videos that show in more detail how they were made.
