awesomely great, you've done a real pro job on it and the finish of the armour is superb.
I shoulda done HD armour in hind sight, especially the Cuisse/Thigh pieces which have an extra side to it unlike LowDef. Ah well make a note of that for next time eh? XD

See ya then dude =]

ah really awesome, the chest piece you can probably get away with, just need to raise the COD piece higher, theres a bit too much gap in the abdonmin area.

I have a feeling my COD and shins will be too small for mine :S

It's looking great Kier, just wait till all the screaming fan-boy/girls catch sight of you. And sure as fate somebody will assume you bought it. BITCH SLAP THAT ASS oh yeah. I may actauly leave Clio for this cosplay, and that's saying something. Halo fucking sucks. ^__^

Yo, Keir, just wondering: Where di you get your underarmour from? I'm doing Recon for October and i can't find a good underarmour any where!

Great meeting you in the changing room and masquerade queue. I know you were all in pain wearing these, but they looked Fantastic. If you could just tweek them now to add a bit of comfort inside so they dont kill each time you wear them. MUST wear these again to cosplay shows. Well done!
