Ha, my apologies.

Either way, this build is very impressive. Really nice paint work!

Those pieces look amazing!!!

Can you explain a little bit more in detail how you painted the Chest, thighs and pelvic armor?

That's the best paint job of those pieces, I've seen so far.

I have a massive update that I'm behind on, so I'm going to be uploading progress in a few sections  :)
I got my helmet fully painted and really loving how this came out!

I have made some modification's to my soft parts that needed to happen due to previous sloppiness and fit.

1. On my hand plates I painted the pleather trim section brown since the mold of mine had it already on there, tried to custom mix it to match the trim on the rest of the costume.
2. I weathered my soft parts and also took in my vest at the waist a lot for a better fit.
3. I redid the back pleather panel on the collar to be cleaner. (This was prior to seeing the display that there is a strip of the grey twill on the bottom of this section). I also replaced the gold metal zipper my commissioner used on the undershirt to a longer invisible zipper. Now I can get in and out of it much easier and it's a bit more screen accurate. This is also another angle of the new fit of my vest.
4. I added a gusset into the crotch of my pants because the commissioner made my pants fit WAY too tight there. Much more comfortable and closer to screen accurate in fit now.

Here is a test fit of what I have completed so far (WIP-please see final comment for my full to-do list)

1. Full body shot of what is currently completed
2. Added padding to shoulders taken after full body shot
3. the beginnings of the belt being patterned. We noticed that the measurements most people are stating to do at 3.5" overall is much too wide of a belt. I purchased the JJ Industries hardware kit and I am 5'6.5" with measurements similar to Katee in the bust, hips and waist only varying by about an inch in different directions. This photo, the belt size is 3" which seems about right. The hardware will probably be scaled to large on me.

I have begun finishing and painting my 3-D printed jetpack and currently have a base layer of silver on it. Waiting for this to cure for a while before I begin to add the blue sections, the orange triangles, and then weather.

Hi there, sorry for the long reply, I took quite a bit of a hiatus working on this over the last few months and wasn't checking my replies.

If you go back to some of my process photos I posted, it will help show what I'm explaining.
Steps were:
1) Base layer of automotive grade primer
2) Montana Gold Silver Chrome (waited for the paint to cure for longer than a week before moving on)
3) masking fluid where main weathering points are
4) Lightly dusted Montana Gold shock black
5) Remove masking fluid
6) Lightly sand in a vertical direction
7) Airbrush Alumiluster
8) watered down black acrylic for a wash over top. Immediately spray rubbing alcohol. Dab with an automotive grade paper towel.
9) Add chrome highlights back to necessary areas and add more chrome scraping lines.

Hope this helps!
