I want to do a fit of armor native the Gears of war game series for PaxEast 2012.This was my very first time do costume armor the end of foam.Eventually ill get more professional image of the final product!


*

an initial step i took to be figuring out the sizing and shape that the suit.Here ns using large sheets that bristol file to make type of a mock increase of the armor
*

*

once making the suit ns felt that this product was the best to job-related with due to the fact that its light weight, straightforward to come by and also afford, and also easy come shape. You have the right to take a warm gun to it and type it directly to her body to obtain accurate shapes.

following I supplied a warm glue total to connect all the piece together, and i began mapping out through a marker wherein the next, more detailed, layers to be going to go
next I started "roughing" the end what the back plate and also shoulders would be like.All of this would certainly basically be extended up through the comprehensive foam layers and also paint, so i felt it was alright to me a small messy v this layer.
climate I started to start adding a second foam layer come what I had actually to bulk it up and also give that a much better shape.
following a supplied a super slim foam called "Foamies", also very inexpensive and also easy to come by. This helped a lot v the slim details like on the one bits.
following I began to weather the a bit. Typically I take it basic on the weathering on props and also stuff, however I chose to really go in ~ it on this suit because it was an alleged to be very war torn.
next up i coated it through a rubber spray called "plastidip" which friend can find at house depot and also other hardware stores. This helped seal the foams "pours" for this reason it could take paint lot easier.
after ~ spending a few hours with various spray paints, acrylic paints, and also inks I controlled to gain the colors in a place I was an extremely satisfied with. If ns had an ext time to finish the suit, ns would have actually wired lights with the suit. Yet I had finished the repaint job literally hours before the convention.For the weathering it to be various approaches of burning the foam through the warmth gun, skidding across the surface with a dremel, cutting at it through a box cutter, and also digging chunks out for the gouge point out
I handled he boots in the very same fashion. Job-related out every one of the sizing and also designs and also traced it out onto a foam sheet.
below I began with the painting. Dry brush Hammered silver paint and added a bit of squid to clear up in the cracks.It to be REALLY tough to lug myself to continue painting this due to the fact that they looked so cool like this.
here they are finished with all the paints and such applied.I fashioned a cheap knock off croc in the bottom that the boots to fit comfortably, as well as a hinge in the fishing eye to relocate with mine foot.
