oh lots of full armor request as i come back
yay a bit o fun
(have nearly 200 vids on cosplay construction in my link)

rrr i would almost classify this as light armor
but there is torso work and thus requires more back and fourth for fitting
this is just my rate
$300 labor +materials+shipping
(i kinda want to say light b/c the arms are free fitted making it $200 labor)
but im booked for some time
and have strict fitting guidelines

but ppl have different rates

05-11-2012, 08:19 PM
so like $200 or $300 for this whole costume? when will you e available again?

05-11-2012, 09:09 PM
ill say $200 for the labor as most of it has free jointing
then material costs
and shipping costs

i also charge extra for lighting and mechanics

im hesitant to do the work of and in depth
quote as you have a habit of asking for specialist work
and wanting china prices :/
but if your are still interested
the first armor slot i have open is in Aug
the next one is in Oct
and i will write up my nearly 2 page summery quote
with details on fitting and some questions on details
slots are first come first serve

good times to all

im needing a total estimate so i need like how much it will e in total with all the labor material and shipping cost. thank you

checking as the labor costs scare off most ppl
and it sucks having to make costume quotes for ppl
who dont understand that it will cost 100s of dollars
it will take me a bit while i cost all the materials


05-11-2012, 09:29 PM
thank you i just want the total is all

went looking for better pic as i noticed
blurred detail in the armor
found this version

the resin model has considerably less detail and is clearly a different suit
just so ya know

material list:
12mm. EVA foam=$17
5mm. EVA foam=$5
EPS foam=$11
upholstery foam=$6
3mm. PVC sheeting=$12
6mm. PVC sheeting=$9
acrylic sheeting=scrap/free
poster boar=$15
custom dyed male full body suit=$46
heavy interfacing=$10
snaps,fitting,eyelets,ext. =$25
two weeks labor=$200
shipping=$55 in North America (22x22x34 box UPS)

fitting shipping=$16 per set to NA
So what i do is make poster board fittings and send you a copy to check the jointing and make adjustments.
in short, you send your thoughts and pics back

last is my stance on shoes
safety and comfort are key

you can
A: mail me a pair of old comfortable shoes i will mod
B: ill buy a pair form good will (um about $5)

ok stop ranting now
no need to go into details now

so total =$468+shoes

and as always if youd like i have vids on cosplay construction
feel free you use the list of supplies and the vids to have a go at it :)
