Information

Ikkaku-kun put me onto the ways of making this costume, with the help of him pointing me into the right place (405th forums) I learnt how Master Chiefs from Halo and alike were made. So basicly I learnt how to fibre glass and templating.

Both me and Ikkaku-kun started the templating and with his guidence we have achieved a very good piece so far.

Hey! I'm thinking of doing this version too! It'd be really cool, maybe we should swap armour-making tips or something? When you planning on making it? ^^ Can't wait to see! Gilgamesh = Awesome! :D

Hmm it would appear as though the verticies pretaining to the angular stabilty of the underside of this armoured suit are most stable and noteworth, i salute you... Bidooing xD

Just say when and where and Ill wear it, anything for a photoshoot. Your saber looks rearly good. This is my first attempt at fibre glassing and I think its come out ok for a first attempt.

Hopefully I will have the sword together tomorrow. The whole costume is not perfect and tbh I was hoping it would turn out better but I have to go with what I have got. I cant find a wig anywhere tho and its causing a majour panic atm.

Progress Journal

Day 18 (Posted 19th May 2009)

Basicly finished everything except the feet armour and the capes.

Day 15 (Posted 11th May 2009)

Painted the sword, moulded the shoulder pads part 1 and fibre glassed the elbo armour. The covered the elbo armour in filler.

Day 14 (Posted 22nd April 2009)

Painted the upper leg armour parts along with the sword layers. I also put the handle in the sword, doing this I did break it so I had to fix it with filler. I also fixed the triangle sections to the knee armour.

Day 13 (Posted 20th April 2009)

Filled the sword with expandy foam to give more stability. Sanded the sword, sword pieces and the upper leg armour. Then covered all these with filler.

Day 12 (Posted 10th April 2009)

Repainted the body, and done some more fibre glassing on the sword parts. Also fibre glassed the pointy knee pieces.

Day 11 (Posted 10th April 2009)

Fibre glasses the sword, and created the mould for the shoulder pads. Covered the body with a protective clear paint, however this took off the shine so I will be repainting the body.

Day 10 prt2 (Posted 27th March 2009)

Painted the body.

Day 10 (Posted 27th March 2009)

Primed the body and filled the holes found with pva and primed again. Also cut the shoulders so I can get in it, though this did scrap the f**k out of my ears :'(

Day 9 (Posted 27th March 2009)

Primed and painted the little skirt pieces and small arm pieces.

Day 8 (Posted 16th March 2009)

Fillered the small arm pieces, fake layers on the skirt and grieves. Sanded all these pieces and started to hand sand the costume to make it super smooth.

Day 7 (Posted 15th March 2009)

Added the layers to the 'Skirt', fibre glassed the top leg armour pieces and added and sanded some more filler.

Day 6 (Posted 7th March 2009)

Main body section fillered and sanded down.

Day 5 (Posted 7th March 2009)

Main body section fibre glassed.

Day 4 (Posted 18th January 2009)

Fibre glassed the top side of the arm guards and started the body, but the temperature is causing problems.

Day 3 (Posted 5th January 2009)

Today the total time racked upto around 13 hours.

We completed the lower leg armour pieces, the knee armour pieces, started and failed the shoes and started the elbo armour pieces.

Day 2 (Posted 3rd January 2009)

Today we completed the outer skirt, the lower skirt, the grieves and the thigh sections.

Total costume time so far around 9 hours.

Day 1 prt 2 (Posted 3rd January 2009)

Finished the 'under arm guards'. These took about an hour.

Also tried and epicly failed the shoulders, now going to mould them.

Day 1 (Posted 1st January 2009)

After nearly 5 hours I (and Wayne) have managed to do the base for the chest piece.

Also I have managed to make a cast of my legs to able me to make the leg pieces without someones help.
