    Jun 1, 2009, 7:06 PM - New vest/armor & tweaks before ComicCon #1

    Just putting the finishing touches on my cold cast armor and helmet. The vest is Ladysewforus. I provided a steelblue colored automotive vinyl and then weathered it down with some charcoal SEM. This updated from my prior vest with Rub-n-Buff armor. I'll be sportin this at SDCC. I also updated my smaller 2" belt to a 3" belt for a better proportional fit to my 6 ft frame.

    Wow, everything looks really good. Like they all just jumped off the screen. The new belt looks amazing with the girthbelt.

    And I thought it looked awesome before!
    Great mods man, well done!
    I'm particularly loving the helmet, very clean work.

    I'm curious about the cold cast, what did you do with the edges where you have cut through the cold cast & the resin & fiberglass layers are exposed?
    Did you paint or Rub'nBuff the edge?

    The Rn'B on the edges is a great idea!
