Lord general Adam (burnt earth (retired due to damage)) - solis guard (original)

Status :Complete
Worn At :London MCM Expo Comic Con October 2013



my weapons and armour


carrying swords

come at me bro

look out I'm after you

data code armour

first drawing ever

basic uniform 3

basic uniform 2

basic uniform 1



the costume is mainly made up of British army DPM combats with a cloak, bracers and an armoured chestplate which has a barcode and name on it. weapons wise he carries a katana, a leaf bladed broadsword, a PPR-01l rifle (plasma-pulse-rifle-series 1 long). I chose to make the costume because I had created the character for a book series and the characters looks were based on me so for a first cosplay I thought it would be ideal.

this variation of the character is from when he visits earth after a nuclear apocalypse happens during the early years of the solis guard; during his visit he was able to salvage a G36 rifle which he has kept as his service rifle, the camo that he used during this campaign was based of off british DPM camo as he was mainly fighting in temperate climates.

Now with 100% more video!

The armour looks a really good fit and nicely shaped. I really like the little details to make your character more of an individual too! The only concrit I can even think of is if you wanted to make your foam a little tougher, rather than just painting it, you can add layers of watered down PVA glue to give it a stronger finish. Personally I've never got to grips with foam armour, but there's some brilliant tutorials for strengthening it on youtube and deviantart. :) Great work!

This is a cool idea. The cape is cool! :) It's heard to give suggestions on how to improve as it's a OC, but I think if you added a bit more detailing onto the chest plate it'd look even cooler - just little metal rivets where it joins or some etched in details/wearing in!
