First full test fitting. Still a lot to change. Ab needs to come higher along with butt and cod. Need to cut and lift thighs, trim and shape shins.

Thank you for the offer of help! Right now I'm just getting ready to alter shins and thighs. My blaster is ready for paint currently and my ax is half way done. Tomorrow is going to be a big day for progress! Guess the only thing is besides the thighs, shins and low ab/cod placement is there anything you see I need to fix?

It looks really good. One thing I would highly recommend is to add a strap between the cod and the butt plate. The Thong Strap. :p

It will help with the floating butt plate and control the cod. I found that when the armor slid down (I have no hips, lol) the cod acted some what, ah, embarrassing. Strap fixed both issues easily.

I am also impressed at how you can actually bend your elbows. I looked like C3P0 trooper in mine. :p

This is all just taped on with masking tape and held by friction actually :P I was definitely planning on the "thong" strap haha. It uhh...will avoid awkward photos and comments like these for sure!! The ab plate/cod/butt plate all will be sitting higher too. They slid down while I was doing this.

I was too actually. I can put on my own helmet once it's all attached. It actually has decent movement which is awesome!

But I made some huge headway this weekend in terms of getting things sized and cut. I bet the armor is 80% ready for initial primer, blaster is ready for final painting and my laser ax is 80% ready for primer. I'll photo dump later!

Got the shins all glued with their greeblies. Added in the Velcro closures. Just waiting for everything to dry.
Added snap webbing deals to the back of the ab plate for the closure there. Then I'll need to make the straps for it. Also going to add in snaps for securing it to my harness. Last thing will be the TD attachment. Probably going with magnets for ease of suit up.
Making the thigh gap extensions tonight as well as chest extensions. Gluing those in so I can trim them tomorrow.
Just needing to fill in some details, get some stuff strapped and glued. And it's paint time for the armor!

Weapons wise I still have my blaster ready to go for paint. Just need 6 bolts for assembly after and it is completed. My ax is the same as above. Need to get a couple thing cut out and glued. Then paint hahw

Shins are ready to go besides gasket Velcro. Got most of the snap attachments done last night and will finish them tonight. Chest closure tonight also. Seeing the finish line with prepping my armor for paint. It's so close!

Mock suit up. Trying to get strapping where it needs to be.

Any thoughts or glaring problems?

I am by no means an expert on this suit.. Maritza is gonna be your best source in Garrison.. However I am super excited to see your progress.. Seriously can't wait to see you get approved in this :D

If I be waspish, best beware my sting
