Very slick!
Thanks so much! Another update :)

Big update! :) Pretty much just the helmet needs to be repainted. Which will hopefully be done in the next day or 3. Timothy is sending me all of this tomorrow :)

My Sideshow Child is also coming on Friday. So hopefully I can get everything attached for a full suit up this weekend. Excited!
 
So excited! Everything but my helmet and right gauntlet arrived today :) So I've started the task of attaching everything to my soft parts. Hopefully more by the end of the weekend :)

Looks AMAZING, bro!! Congrats!!

Could you let me know how you end up attaching the armor? What specific kinds of glue and velcro you use? Was researching magnets, etc, but would love to hear what you decide to go with! I have all of my armor ready to go, just need to figure out an attachment method.

Thanks!

Thanks man! I ended up stitching industrial velcro (soft side) to my suit. I glued the hook side to my armor using E6000 (currently drying, needs at least 24 hours to cure).

I'll take some detailed shots once it's all secured!
 
Also curious as to how you’re securing the bracers - both keeping the two halves attached, as well as how you’re stopping them from sliding around on your arm.
They're a pretty tight fit, so they won't slide. If they did I'd probably either pad it a bit with foam or use some velcro to pin it to the sleeve of either my flights uit or gloves.

The bracers have velcro hinges on the inside on one side and magnets on the other. So they can easily be opened and closed :)

Video in the near future!

I would LOVE to see/know what you used for hinges and magnets...was thinking about doing the same to mine
