I did a little touch up on the mask, finished the back of the helmet (minus a stripe down the middle if I feel so inclined), and finished the shoulder armor this morning.

I've made some progress on the armor. Completed the stomach/cod piece armor, elbows, lower arm gauntlets, chest, and hand plates. Not a ton of armor left to paint and then I can start assembling it all!

I finally completed the painting and buffing of all the armor pieces. I will probably need to do a little touch up but I think that it overall turned out really well. Now on to assembly!!

I can't tell, but are the "claws" foam? Or are those resin too?

The claws are foam. The maker of the armor used to use a hard plastic or resin claw but they kept breaking and cut someone once... so he switched to foam.

Those two issues were my first thought with the use we put our costumes through. Not to mention children running around at that level. It doesn't distract too much from the visual impact of quality. I haven't worked with foam, but I've heard of builders using wood glue layered on as a way to seal the bubbles on the edges. Just a thought if you wanted to give it that visual edge back?

This is going to look rad when finished! Also what brand of gloves have you used? I'm looking for an option for my TK and these resemble the Rouge One gloves.

Good thought on the wood glue. I used plasti dip so that it wasn't quite as soft but that could work to seal and smooth it out a little bit more. The gloves I am using are Camelbak Impact CT Black Gloves that I ordered through a military supply website. They are tactical shooting gloves and were fairly inexpensive.

Yeah, when I used foam to build a ARC trooper costume, I used plastidip. But even then, some holes would still be visible. But this armor is looking great! :)

I may have already asked this, but when do you think you'll be done?
