Hey Guys, This is my first post EVER in a Cosplay community, this is also my FIRST armor fabrication. So I;m giving a lot of time for this project, and am welcome to any and all ideas from seasoned veterans.
My Long term cosplay is the wonderful Cyborg Ninja ( a.k.a "Grey Fox" ) From the Metal Gear solid series. I'm Hoping to do the Play arts Kai

So As for plans for this project I was thinking about doing a life cast of my head and torso and sculpting the head chest and shoulders. The hard part is what I should cast those pieces out of .. Especially the helmet. I also want it to be articulated and possibly light up ( fingers crossed.
As for the body suit , I'm not an expert seamstress ( seamster? What's the male version?) ..and would love any Ideas on how I should navigate that part.
Like I said this is a HUGE project and it's going to be a slow and grueling process especially for a newbie like me, but I know with some guidance ( YOU GUYS!!) I can complete this idea. Please post any questions or comments! I can't wait to hear from you!
