Trying to decide on colors & pattern
« on: Jul 13, 2018, 03:46 PM »
Any suggestions?  Initially I was going to go with black and red after seeing a setup like that online, but red really isnt my color.  Typically I'd go for green or orange, but for some reason they just arent sitting well with me on this armor set.

Thinking maybe black and gold, with a reflective gold t visor, something like this:


I'm just tossing ideas around right now, havent cut out the sintra yet (still sizing the paper patterns).

IMO, black and red are overdone. Really like this black and gold! :like:

What color would you guys recommend for the vest/flight suit underneath this?  I've been told that black on black ends up looking bad in photos a lot of the time.  I think the black and gold armor would work ok if I can make it not blend in too much with the soft parts of the armor underneath.

Thinking maybe a dark grey, or grey-blue for the flight suit and vest might be ok?

Being from Pittsburgh, I have to upvote the black and gold. :)

If you stick with black on black, you can play with textures and finishes to distinguish the parts.  Like, for example, leather or pleather for your vest and twill for your flightsuit, with satin black for your plates.  That or you can incorporate a dark charcoal grey like you mention.  If you used black on your soft parts too, the gold will really stand out (possibly in a good way).  Anyone who went through a goth phase as a teenager knows that there are a range of blacks that you can work with.
