[14th sept update]
no progress >>;; been really busy at work and spendable money is short for materials. expect an update some time around the end of the first week in october tho!
[24th sept update]
still no *real* progress. i re-cut the inside elbow curves on the lower vambraces for comfort, fixed the pauldrons to the main body permanently, and fixed the shoulder domes to the upper vambraces permanently. mostly cosmetic/comfort edits before i start final latexing sometime next week.
i did try wearing the suit for a prolonged time (about an hour plus) and i was fairly suprised at how natural and comfortable it felt.

leaps and bounds! latexed and painted the helm, feet and vambraces. looking great! also finished the spikes and permanently fitted them to armour.
also made a permanent decision to abandon trying to make the knee and elbow pads. maybe a future addition.
