Look around for big plastic x-mass orniments, they are out of season, but you might find some around. Asking never hurts [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

But they will be the perfect shape and light wieght.

Before you get too far, I figure I'll let you in on a few of the ideas I had for my own armour a while back before I decided I had nowhere near enough technical know-how to actually build it.  I have a whole list of features I wanted to incorporate.  These are the three I can remember off the top of my head.  If I ever find the list or think of any more I'll post them up.

Number one: fans in the backpack vents that link up with hoses in the back armour to circulate exterior air throughout the torso

Number two: Camelbak bladder in the backpack with the hose running up through the neck seal

Number three: MkVI Corvus helm, so you have enough room for a voice changer.  You could take one from a kids toy helmet or something, but I wanted to run either a throat mic or a small regular mic to the guts of an octave pedal and practice amp in the backpack, then back up to a small speaker in the helmet.

Looks fantastic!

 I'm really impressed with the work you've done so far, you get a gold star!

Can't wait to see how the rest of this turns out.


Keep it up!

Decided it was time to have a little fun. After successfully making a template for a front only tabard, I decided to fumble around with ways of attaching my shoulder bells to the torso. After figuring it out I just had to try it all on for a bit of fun.



I like the way the tabard looks. With all the detailing I PLAN on doing, I wanted to still be able to see the chest Aquila, with the low cut front look I still get to show off that symbol, and get all the benefits of a tabard (looks/concealment)
I think I'm having too much fun with this.

If I don't shave my head, I will at least have very short hair =P None of this Gabriel Angelos bullcrap.

I started doing the fun bits today though. Little bit of heraldry here.. maybe some Aquilas there.. .. few purity seals over tthheerree

If you have access to a sewing machine, I would suggest you hem the tabard for a cleaner look.  My personal suggestion (because I hate dealing with curves) is to sew extra wide double folded bias tape around the edges.  The tape is a single color for its entire length, but you can find it in a bunch of different colors if you want to contrast it with the tabard itself.

Aye, I haven't even started on the tabard yet. I had a piece of cloth lying around and cut a hole in it - thats as far as I got on it. Sewing will happen eventually.
