Building a Creature (CFTBL) inspired dive suit.

Hello, I am new to this forum. I am currently building a SCUBA diving suit inspired by the creature from the black lagoon. Not sure if there are many creature fans on this site but I thought that making the images available from this build might help a few on their own costumes. Current list of materials being used are: Smooth-on products- silicone, urethane rubber, adhesives, neoprene and much more... This is a full sculpt being done by me, no-recasting... Start to finish this should be a 12 week project and i'm currently rounding out week 4. I will post a current sculpt photo here to catch up to todays work and keep this thread updated with current build photos. Considering the size limit on photos on this site I will leave all the process here on my FB page which there are many: Sculpting, Molding, Casting, Complete Parts etc... Please feel free to view and submit any specific questions about what I am doing here. I hope you enjoy the build!

Many new process pics on FB page, here is the end result of todays work.

From top to bottom:

First pull on fin mold, playing around with multiple colors
Back sculpt, gonna need a lot of clay to get this to size...
Armature for the left creature hand, my own out of plaster.

I have posted many photo's and updates and they all seem to be going in the spam folder or need mod approval... I'm not uploading them anymore just linking to and they still need mod approval??? I don't understand the grip around this sites throat... I don't have time to re-size all my photos and upload special ones just for cosplay that's ridiculous. If anyone has some ideas how to get past these problems I would love to hear it.
