Amazing cosplay, I got a question for you:
when you say that your going to cover it in fiber glass are you going to use fiberglass strips with epoxy or do you use something else to hold the fiber glass on?
once again, beautiful cosplay.

I just paint the resin over top of it to make it look like one peice. I use the strips of cloth mixed with resin on the underside for support.

lol I know fun isnt it?
I responded to fightstar in a PM but just in case anyone else was wondering how I made this stuff its basically craft foam and I curve it with a heat gun. Later on its fiberglassed to make it strong enough to endure the trials it undergoes at cons XD. So yeah thats about it.
I have to ask you a silly question about your awesome armor. How are you getting it to keep it's shape? The forearms are rather nicely curved. Did you use a heat gun or some other method? Your progress is stunning and simple amazing so far.
This is coming along really nicely, I can't wait to see the finished product!
So sweet. I can imagine how it is bending and shaping all that but I'm sure it'll work out for you in the end! Also can't wait to see this... Woooo!
lol same here although this time it didnt take me long
Understandable. I had to fix mine and I plan on remaking it with wonderflex when I get the time. And then, NEVER AGAIN.
lol yeah I also made my girlfriends shoulder armor too. It's safe to say I'm SICK of making it lol.
Suhweeeet! I'm totally excited for this. I know how annoying that shoulder armor is to make, so you gotta respect someone who is making an entire suit of it!
holy crap, that looks amazing!!! Can't wait to see it in-person at ACen!!!! XD
I am so excited about this! I wish I could be at ACen to see this. XD
LOL amano Link that would be awesome if done right. Heh yeah I've never had a problem with fiberglass...I say that now hopefully it doesnt mess me up later. lol
Hey, if you didn't paint your armor, you would totally be an Amano Link! XD Your armor looks amazing so far, great job! :3
damn i didnt even notice how much detail the outfit has till now
links gunna be bling bling
Good luck on that. I refuse to use that stuff since it leads to me passing out and headaches. X_X
Good luck, and pray for cool temperatures for the debut lol X_X
Looks fantastic, Force, those details are amazing.
(I don't post in the Zelda thread; I just lurk.)
Craft foam and fibergless, I'll have to remember that...
