Foamies Begins Suit - Pics Pgs. 1-5, 7-9, 11-12


Just finished my first try at, well, anything, heh. I think it turned out pretty well. I'm gonna make another gauntlet to match it now that I have some confidence.

I changed my design a little from the pattern that seems to be going around because I wanted the closing to be underneath, and more or less out of sight.

The blue you see on the pic of the gauntlet being worn is the color of the foamies where i missed with paint. I touched up these areas with a black sharpie. What do you think?

Very nice. I'm looking to make Returns or my own original leg armor, haven't decided yet. Anyway, what materials did you use? Foamies and what else?

I just made all the pieces from foamies, just used your everyday super glue to hold the pieces together, plasti-dip sprayed it all, then painted with some black acrylic paint that was left over from a past project.

it's a rubbery coating. i wanted a little more rigidity and a smoother texture so it worked pretty well for me in this case.
