Su'cuy! I've been lurking for quite a while, but now i've got some free time and a plan, and decided to try and start working.
I do not have much of an idea about a backstory or name yet, but he is supposed to be the kind of soldier who sneaks into the "right" spot and wreaks havok there. Thus the colors are supposed to be dark...
As for electronics, I intend to have 3 fans, one below the visor, and two blowing out the vents in the back, a pair of headphones/small speakers, and a microphone in the helmet.
I saw once that someone made a cavity in their chest plate and put blinky lights in it, which shone out the bottom... I'm thinking about doing something similar, but with speakers.
Armor itself (pictures are attached - more "plans" than drawings, seeing as I can't draw) is slightly modified from the "traditional" style... There are two color schemes that i've come up with so far, I'm leaning towards the lower part of the first one and the upper part of the second.
The helmet is much like the traditional, just with extra little things added on. the vents in the back should be facing down. I'm not entirely sure how to go about making those things that look like gills on the cheeks - they're supposed to be wedges, and I was hoping to use sintra, which, as far as I know, doesn't come tapered. Wood may work, though.
I'm not sure where to get the flight suit or vest, but I'd like them to be at least somewhat waterproof...
I do intend to have a Kama, and a sort of cape-like thing hanging form the shoulder.
I've also put this up over at the HV&M
Any comments, questions, ideas?
