    I dont have the best ideas ever but you could always get a helmet and build off of it

    I know this sounds silly, but try paper mache balloons for the start, you'll need the jumbo sized ones, so they'll be about head size.

    Then just bondo and work from there

    I found a video how to make the Kamen Rider mask if anyone is interested.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvUs68Dk-hY

    The show's area actually cool to watch, they aren't for kids like the power ranger junk over here, check out Kiva on youtube, they have full episodes.

    I have to admit that looks pretty awesome!

    It almost looks like the body armor is made of foam but i dont think it is

    I have to admit that after watching an episode it looks interesting, but I just have a hard time getting past the big goofy foam costumes. They should have made it an anime.

    wouldnt be the same in anime, it's been this way since the early 70's.

    Kiva is from 2008/2009, but Kamen Rider has been around for a LOOOONG time.
    And now I show my age oops. I saw Star Wars in the drive in back in 77, and frist saw Fett 1980, NOT IN Episode IV SE

    I'm re-thinking the armor to be more aggressive looking. Thinking about double shoulder armor, and layering the breast plates. I still gotta get the pants/jumpsuit for this.
    I have the industrial velcro, vest and plates (now to be re-worked) but nothin' else.........

    AAARRRGGHHH MONEY WHY DO YOU NOT COME TO ME IN MY HOUR OF NEED

    By the way, welcome home Cam.

    Try "Sign it", on Santa Fe Drive, It's in Clairemont.

    Just Google sign shops near, then your address, call the closest one and ask for scrap sintra. They should give you a butt-load. If they don't, try rid-out plastics, they charge, but It's cheap. Like 16 square feet for $30.

    Oh, and P.s. Try cutting smaller armor plates and add them on top of your existing armor plates, should look awesome.

    THX 4 info... The plan was as you say above, use smaller plates and layer, but I think I'll modify those shapes a little You'll see what I mean soon enough.
