Your strip color is very close to the shoe color now. Much better!

If you get any of it on you, Goo Gone takes it off. Just a FYI that helps keep you from being a sticky mess (happens even with gloves!).
Thanks! I was lucky making a proof with earcups, but here comes the helmet!
Got an oval cookie cutter? I've been sifting through my kids playdough stuff for round and oval cutters to use. Also, feel free to downoad the image I posted of the 5 little greeblie things on the helmet. I revised a couple of them to look right. My oval maybe a bit thin, but that's why I was suggesting the playdough or cookie cutter. Hobby Lobby has sets of oval shapes for clay molding, but I think cast off play dough ones will work fine for me.
If those suggestions aren't useable, then may I suggest wetting your fingers and smoothing out the edges? They're just a bit bumpy. The symbols are fine as far as I can tell.
Sent an email. Hopefully, that's you I sent it to. I've been known to surprise people...
Congrats on the prop!
It's been slow going for me at this point. The scratch build helmet is especially a slow job, even with the pepakura file base. By the way, I'm getting something in the mail called Alvin Lab-Metal. It's actually a fast drying putty, but thinned down it can be used like paint. I mention this because it'll make the helmet look more authentic with it applied. It actually has metal in it and when buffed, it shines. Least that's the reviews I saw about it. Anyways, just wanted to let you know I'm going to use this and will post my opinion (and pictures) when I get to that point.
I've got troubles with helmet and vest, so now my work is slowly because of it. Well, I've finished the central piece, connectors and the brooche. The cummerbund greeblie and ovary bits needs some weathered effect.
Boots are finished too, I used E600 to glue the toecap. I hope it resists!
Doesn't the piece with the rope like part in front need some blue tones? Pretty sure it does.
I agree the flu sucks. I've recently had a nice round of it last week. I'm still getting over it, dang it. I'm down to binoculars and arm gauntlets to do for a finished costume. However, I'm making some changes for this to be more to my height. And I'ev been told my brim may be a bit wide, so I'll be looking into scaling it back a bit.
