    thanks . This is my first costume so I'm kinda of struggling my way through(you guys have helped a lot though :thumbup ) with the actually making side of it, I'm just hoping my art ability will make it look better than it is.

    you got the fudamentals of weathering down...not too much, dirt where it should be. Nice job, lets see some more !

    Just remember, if you don't have confidence in tacklilng something, no one ever criticized anyone for practicing on something first. Find cheap bike helmet or something and go at it!

    Great work. I remember how hard it was to get my first Jodo suit done. In fact, the very first pieces I did were my shoulder bells. One small step at a time amigo. Keep it up.

    My first suggestion - CLEAN UP THAT ROOM!

    J/K - They look good, nice weathering effects. What are you using for for the darts?

    I used metal spacers for bolts to make mine. I had to dremel the inside of them out before I could slip the smaller spacer inside the bigger bigger spacer. For the pointed one, I used a brass nipple and sprayed it chrome.

    by the way my wife's reply to your suggestion to tidy up that room was " what's more important...the room or the costume?"
