I just came back to the site after an unexpectedly long "break". 

I have to restart my build; disappointing, but not that difficult as the one thing I'd made major progress on previously had been my rifle.

I Still have my "assassin" Helmet, and I just ordered my plate from I.O.A.

I'm starting this before heading into work, so it's a bit rushed, but here's a written outline of my ideas:

Medium Armor

Colors:
-Green
-Black
-Polised/Brushed Metal

Loin Cloth

Two blades

One Long Rifle

**Possibly one or two hidden blasters




I really want to do a sort of sleeveless flight suit design.  Where my Gauntlets are mounted on what will look like bandages (I'll explain my idea for those when I have more time).  But instead of my Gauntlets being Completely solid, they'd be more of a Skeletal design that might hold a small blaster (spring loaded?  ;D ) on the inside, Bottom and back would then have Either a couple cortosis laced bars, or a plate, with hooks running up for climbing and melee uses.

Ok, just ordered my soft parts, minus the flak.  I'll be making that myself out of some heavy Canvas material closer to when my plates arive.  I'm going with a two-piece under my armor instead of the flight suit.  It shouldn't make a majr difference.

here's everything I got:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003MYJTYO/ref=ox_sc_act_title_5?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004E2C20Q/ref=ox_sc_act_title_4?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004IKTJEG/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002FKNNDY/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0040GJ768/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

I got two of each of those pouches, and two sets of gloves.  I'll use one with the normal armor plate on the back, and the other will be a set of Crush Gaunts.

I also decided to give up on trying to cut my own visor out of something and ordered the assassin one from T-visor.com.

I'm considering using a Jetpack or Jumppack, but don't want to pay for one on here.  Any ideas on that?  I was thinking about starting with two paint trays, and, after a bit of reinforcement on the inside, epoxying them together.  Then adding the thrusters and other fun stuff once the body is cured.

Edit:

Found these boots too!

Haha, thanks.  I'm not gonna lie, I was just kinda being lazy cause I was in a rush.  My stuff has already started showing up though!  some of the pouches I ordered were even better than I was expecting... anyway, in the next few days it looks like I'll have everything on hand but my plates, flak, and boots (accidentally had them sent to my parents place in MN).

I'll take some photos of everything laid out and start uploading to photobucket to show all my scratch materials.

**Possibly an armor party in my area on sunday, so I might be able to make some progress on my bucket  ;D , cross your fingers for that.

Got almost all my stuff in!  I still need to make my Flak, when I get a chance to go get the material.  And I already explained the boots, so here's a few pictures of what I have.  (three are the front/side/back of what I'll wear instead of the flight suit, in order to stay with my sleeveless theme.  The last is everything else I have on hand at the moment.

Colors:
-Green
-Black
-Polished/Brushed Metal

I think that will look brilliant (not that I'm biased at all)

Got my armor in and preliminary forming done with the help of my clan.

Just taped on for your opinions for now.  Once my actual vest shows up I'll throw on the velcro and finish forming according to all the responses.

I'll keep that in mind!  the collar was the first thing attached, and it kept falling so much we had to throw in the visible piece of tape... I'm sure it'll fair better with Velcro.

It'll probably fit better when your vest arrives, especially the collar.  We just used an extra  vest I had laying around.
