Description
Since Miruru wants to cosplay my Nene Hardsuit (pink FTW) I've had to construct something else for me to wear. I was originally thinking of doing Sylia, but I don't think I'd have the patience to do the "Buzz Lightyear" Wings

Naturally, I'm using the same materials as my Nene Hardsuit, and I'll be constructing these in tandem, so don't be alarmed if you see me mixing and matching the armors while I'm taking photos :D

Edit 11/03/2011: Due to work commitments, there's a good chance that I won't be able to attend any Cons/Expos this year. I'll continue to make this and the other Hardsuits, so perhaps I may still be able to take some completed photos as and when.
Apologies for those who were looking forward to this. :(

@Amanda - Awww come on, there's no need to lose weight. Plus, when you do decide to cosplay as Linna, we will only need someone to make Sylia, and I'll bring Priss and Nene. That'll be an awesome photoshoot if everything materialises.

@Tim - I've already got progress pics of both Priss and Nene's hardsuits in my journals. More coming soon as I've already made the base armour for the legs. I won't actually upload any proper photos until I've at least finished painting some of the pieces

Not Cosplaying this year (Posted 11th March 2011)

Due to work commitments, there's a good chance that I won't be able to attend any Cons/Expos this year. I'll continue to make this and the other Hardsuits, so perhaps I may still be able to take some completed photos as and when.
Apologies for those who were looking forward to this. :(

Left Helmet at home - Now working on Nene (Posted 28th December 2010)

I was hoping to finish off the base helmet over the Xmas period, but as I left the helmet at home, I've been forced to switch over and continue with Nene.
I probably won't be working on this suit until I return home, so keep your eyes peeled on helmet progress for my Nene Hardsuit.

More Helmet Progress + Antennas (Posted 19th December 2010)

Pretty much made most of the base for the helmet now. I need to finish off the backs of the antennas and also start mount a couple of dark acetate sheets to the inside where the cheeks are.
I've used offcuts of the EVA foam mat on the inside as padding to help keep the helmet secure.
It's a nice tight fit and I can shake my head vigorously.
I'll take another photo of the inside later on

Helmet (Posted 18th December 2010)

Started on the Helmet. I made a base template using about 4 sheets of standard a4 funky foam. Then used the template sections to cut out the actual pieces from EVA foam.
I've designed it in such a way that I can just about see through the gaps at the front in between the stripes and main helmet.

This is essentially a draft helmet, because At the moment, I'm still unsure whether I'll be making a proper visor using PETG plastic to give me all round better visibility.

Pants (Posted 15th December 2010)

This is the base for the pants.
I've actually used all the offcuts of EVA Foam to make these.
Not sure if I'll keep this pair and coat it with craft foam, or whether to simply use these as a template and cut a fresh mat.
Either way, these fit, and they're actually pretty comfy. At least i can sit down in these :D

Torso and Pants (Posted 14th December 2010)

Rough Base for the Torso and Pants. Again, I'm using the same materials as my Nene Hardsuit (EVA Foam)
As I only have 2 different coloured EVA foams, I'm alternating the colours from my Nene Hardsuit, do differentiate the pieces between them.
