Yes, this is all I have done over that long period of time >.> I need to get off my butt and hurry to finish this thing before June 1st.
[Ignore the derp pose. Even if I know someone is taking my picture, I look stupid or do random things with my hands.]
So, I am pretty happy with it so far. You can actually tell what it is, and it doesn't look too bad. I am really happy that you can't see through the fabric with the flash, though I don't know about without the flash.
The cockpit is made from 3 layers of, I think its called Tulle, and I can see quite well. I went with the fabric, because it is cheaper, and I feel it gives a more Anime accurate look to the costume.
The gloss red is a bit darker than I want it to be, since the fabric I have to go with it is a bit lighter. But, so far I like it, and I prefer the gloss paint on the slight chance that it does get wet, or a bit of dirt gets on it. It is much raiser to clean off I have found. Though, depending ont he camera, it might not look the best with the flash, as you can see in the first picture.
I still have to add a lot of stuff, and cover the flat area of the jaw Caps with foam (so you don't see the recycling information of the plastic cups XD ) and make a bunch more armor pieces for the head. I don't think the Horn things will be moving, since I fear they might get in the way of the caps or flop around everywhere. Maybe if I can figure out a better way to make them move, I will.
After I finish the head, I plan to start on the shoulder armor. Can't wait Tell me what you think, I need all the feedback I can get on this costume!
