    Great job! I wanna see closeups of the ears, I like that you changed them to the way they looked in comic. The gauntlets look good too, they all scratch built?

    And now that your done the costume you should take a nap... you look tired! =)

    Nicely done.

    The bigger gun is that made out of a converted SPAS? Just wondering.

    Looks excellent, I agree with closing in the shins a bit tighter. Very awesome!

    Yeah the ears and gauntlets were custom jobs by Wickedbeard - that guy is a miracle worker with metal. The whole outfit will be tweaked (IE- flight suit & cape weathering), and I'll get on bending the shins a little as soon as I take a nap. lol
    Also, yeah the blaster rifle is a modified Airsoft SPAS-12 shotgun. I'm looking into attaching a bayonet to it sometime in the future. The ammo belt is a custom made compilation of a Boba ammo belt and a WW2 french ammo belt.

    Here's a rough breakdown of how much everything cost (minus the custom helmet work and gauntlets, as those were a special arrangement) -

    SgtFang Helmet with visor and paint - $200
    Metal Armor by WB - 300
    Magnum Boots - $60
    Generic Gloves - $10
    Ammo Belt + Girth belt + Holster rig - $375
    FashionFabricsClub.com Cape and Flack Jacket Fabric - $25
    Flak Jacket by BN - $80
    Dickies Flight suit - $50
    Blaster - $50
    Lots of Velcro - $20
    Lots of Goop - $30
    ---------------------
    Total cost (minus custom jobs and tools) - $1200

    I thought that looked like a SPAS. You did a great job with that gun.

    Looking pretty good! I agree with Novall about making the shins tighter. Do you think you could spread out your armour a little on the chest? It looks a little compact
