    Beautiful work guys!!! Have any of you guys used the pepakura software for your suits?

    Have you tried EL lights strips?

    the_batman, that is an awesome idea for flipping up the face mask! I was thinking something more like a flap type movement, but I'll have to reconsider. Thanks for posting those pics!

    And as if this wasn't enough work, with the armor, then lights, but umm...has anyone given any thought to putting in some kind of voice box to alter your voice? Similar to the Darth Vader/Optimus Prime helmets that came out not too long ago. If the lights are the icing on the cake, then a voice box would be the stripper who jumps out of said cake.

    I went with the flip design because on halloween at the local mall do NOT allow adults to wear masks due to child abductors. So I made the flip helmet so I can still go trick and treating with my 5 yr old daughter and son. On the voice box, I took the voice box out of my nephew's transformer (Optimus Prime) costume I made for him last year. You can pick up the voice box at wal-mart for about $5-10 dollars in the toy section. I also have designed intenal compartments to hold a mp3 player with speakers built into the front and back of the shoulder joints. A superhero with his own theme music!!!lol!!!
    Lastly, I'm adding thin plastic tubing with pin size holes through out the exoskeleton with 2 mini fans. This will prevent over heating in the suit.

    Has anyone used a brush-on type resin on their suits???

    Use bondo, or fiberglass, since both is light weight. I usded bondo for the helmet. So that it would be strong yet smooth

    nice work!!!! try doing 4 joints for the face plate. 4 joints make it more stable and it moves in a very michanical way. 2 joints at the temple and 2 joints on the cheeks.
    Again you suit is very cool!!!! OH, the voice boxes are in the toy section usually across from the toy $1.00 section....

    here are the gloves I made over lunch to day at work. I just nide to put some type of hardner on them then prime and paint. I've got full range of motion and they are durable. I made the housing for the lights out of water bottle caps and added 3 leds instead of 1. I used foam for the palms and card board for the back of the hands. The fingertips are made of plastic. I got burned alot doing this with the hot glue gun, but it was worth it.

    here are some of the costumes I designed before. The batman suit is about 3yrs old. We used it for my daughters birthday for a batman action show. not shown are the scarecrow, comm. Gordan, and swat team member costumes we made. The pick with Batman, Optimus prime and Arcee are from last halloween. the kids costumes had lights, voice changer, air conditioning.
    The last on is of my wife in a future police/ ghost in the shell type armored gear. enjoy everyone... Never stop designing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
