    The thing I love about your armor is that it looks as natural and as comfortable as a well worn pair of boots.

    Lookin' good brother!

    thx Jodo, my secret is the following:

    1. never ever clean it
    2. considering ive done about 6 months of fighting in it, in mud, grass, water, sand, and woodsy type areas, it helps add to the realism of it


    *note to self...make nose cones stronger. alos note, that my metal armor so nicy can withstand multiple full force reverse kics from "the chosen one" thx to MMM for the idea of metal armor and not sintra.

    I really like how you used pieces from other armor sets - i.e. Stormtrooper forearm pieces (from what it looks like). Makes the costume much more unique instead of just changing the color.

    That's one sick costume.

    It looks great man. And because of your film being old it just looks like one of those old Military pics you see in old books about War taken a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. Awesome suit!

    I use an older Micrografx program, Picture Publisher 7.0. I converted your original picture to B/W, then back to RGB. Used a sepia tone filter, then image edges.

    I'll shoot you the pic via email.

    If you had an old broken down building in the background, it would have looked like it came from "Saving Private Ryan" or something. Good job on the suit!

    I saw your helmet thread, and had to look for this one. Great armor! I love the colors, and the choice of forearms and shims is awesome.
