|Time Taken :||45+ hours|
|Currently working on my Psycho Mantis costume! Been working on this for a while now, its surprisingly hard to get all the pieces I need for it..|
Managed to score myself a decent looking gas mask that looks similar to the one he uses, and I have the bodysuit sorted too. Gas mask is having some fitting problems at the minute but i should be able to sort it... The body suit needs a few alterations made to it, such as the arms being removed but that is more a finishing touch kind of thing.

Painting gas mask problems (Posted 18th May 2013)
Hmm, it seems I'm having a few problems with the gas mask. It fits perfectly and I'm happy with the shape / style of it - but the painting is proving troublesome. I'm having to use black tyre paint on the mask so it will stick, but after every use I have to touch up certain areas as the paint cracks and flakes away.
Nearly done! (Posted 30th April 2013)
Today I completely painted the gas mask, altered the body suit, altered the new gloves and started searching for the right boots - final steps!!
New parts arrived! (Posted 30th March 2013)
