It looks like Robocop and his amazing technicolour dream armour at the moment XD

I’m in awe of your foam armour skills and look forward to seeing it painted.

As I live in the Channel Islands I can only make it over once a year :( due to costs and transport of my cosplays. So not this year... but I may take him next year!
