Misting with Rusto Hunt Club Green and Flat Black will help a bit.  (Before removing masking)

I re-did my ab plate. Wasn't happy with it. Took your advice BobaFiend and it worked out really well. Used a different yellow. It's a bit... grittier.

Now I've just got to paint my shoulders and knees and I'll be in the home stretch!

Provided I get everything rigged up, I'm going to debut it on the 30th in an unofficial troop. I'm really excited to see it all together.

Thanks for the support everyone! I'll have an update with pictures soon.

I got everything done enough to do a test fit.

Here are the issues I see:

1. Jetpack is sagging and pulling my collar back.  I think if I tighten my harness, it should fix things.
2. You can see my neck clear as day. I have a long neck. I don't know how to fix it :-[ Maybe if I tilt my helmet back?
3. I forgot to actually attach the braids to anything...
4. I know the bottom half of my rangefinder is missing (adhesive is drying).
5. I also know I'm missing my gauntlet hose. I'm trying to fix that.

What did I miss?

Re the neck, who was making those Boba balaclava/neckseal thingomos on TDH? Was it Woodman? Same sort of idea as Chucko's Jango style helmet seals.

So far, so good dude. I love it! I'l comment on your points as you have them listed:

1. For my harness, I exhale all the air I can, and have my slave handler pull it as tight as they can. Then I inhale all the way I can and hold it. I don't have the issue of sagging anymore.
2. Lol long neck. I actually have the opposite problem where I have a short neck and it looks like I don't have one. I sent you a text last night regarding this, it'd be in your best interest to reply.



3. I attached the braids to the vest by going through them a few times with needle and thread. Four troops in and no issues yet.

Additionally, the thong and knee straps look too clean. Finally, the vest looks big in that first picture... is it? Or is that just the angle? Overall it's looking sweet dude :)

Point, that's a good suggestion, but I think I'd overheat. This costume is much warmer than my custom and I think wearing a helmet gasket might be dangerous.

Thanks Byrek! All really helpful suggestions! I'll take a look at the vest again. I'm doing another test fit of the torso armor and jetpack tonight before my event tomorrow morning.
