help a rookie?
« on: November 22, 2015, 06:16:23 PM »
hey all
i'm fairly new to this forum and the world of war hammer 40k

in my small town of Grafton I've been commissioned by the local hobby/comic/magic the gathering shop to make and wear some cosplay space marine armour to advertise for his shop
im very experienced in the Cosplay field but I haven't done any projects requiring vac sealing stilts or any other mind boggling features that seem almost alien to me

so far in all my research im thinking of doing a pepeakura model with fiberglass and bondo (heavy but simple) and see how it turns out the shop owner wants it to be a Halloween advertisement in 2016 so time isn't really of the essence

I was hoping some of you veteran cosplayers and propmakers could give me some pointers or advice

cheers -conzilla

First off, welcome! It’s easy to think time isn’t of the essence but if it’s your first build I’d look into some of the foam templates out there as it’ll go faster and be more forgiving in the end. As a word of advice, get all of your armor built then do the detailing, it’s easy to get lost in the details on one piece of armor only to find you’re running out of time on the remainder of the build.

I agree with voodoo. While paper and fiberglass will offer you higher levels of detail the foam builds are still very impressive, not to mention easier in scope of time and money.

what state?
