Welp, I've put a good chunk of work in recently! Painted my character's color scheme over the purple. I used the toothpaste weathering method to keep some of the undercoat coming through. After my boyfriend puts the Jaig eyes on it, I'll touch up the red splotches and maybe cover up more of the purple on the back. Debating whether I want to brown wash it before smoothing it out and clear coating. Buuuuuuut there's plenty of time.

And without further ado - It's done. Besides the visor. I'm thinking a grey reflective one.

And padding.





I'm very happy with it. Hope you all like it too. :sabine:

Really like what you've done with that Nite Owl!
But, I'm biased.

Bucket is looking good :)

Really think about how you're going to do your shoulders -- you may need to go with a bit broader design to balance out the width of the helmet and be in compliance. 

Keep it up!

Thanks! Hmm. I was thinking of a Nite Owl style armor. May need to look at some examples to help balance everything. :)

First attempt at putting the visor in.



It was pretty stressful!

I also Velcroed mesh over the keyhole slots.

I got a new visor and put clips and padding in it. It looks cool! But my glasses and nose are shoved up against the visor and there's about an inch of space between the visor and the helmet. The visor doesn't want to press up against the helmet. I know the clips aren't really doing anything right now. Will put more in later this week.

A friend trimmed the top of the visor down and used 2 part apoxie to get the visor as close as possible to the helmet.
