Armor Planning / Re: Completely overwhelmed

One suggestion that keeps getting tossed at my by several of my clan-mates is to focus on the Helmet first, once that gets finished you have part of your costume completely done and that helps motivate you for everything else, and it helps make the planning for everything else go more smoothly (since you'd want to match the helmet and the armor)

So, I'm with you on the new, overwhelmed, but want to make a kit. One thing that REALLY helped me out was a thread I found made by someone in my local clan. Check out Keya's New Member Resource Thread. Should take a lot of stress out: http://mercs.firespray.net/forum/index.php?topic=79018.0

Good luck vod!

looks good, but you'll want to cut away the dart clips, maybe give the back end a bit more of a contour, deal with some of the artificial texture, take away the rail/sight things at the top (the orange thing) and a few more things as well.  But it's a good base

Thanks so much for the information! Once I actually get started I'll be sure to throw up a WIP. But thanks again for the starting point!

Armor Planning / Re: Does this look right?

You might want to wear a more form fitting shirt and get some better pictures. It looks kind of off but it's really difficult to see exactly what it is without better pictures

Hey vod, don't feel overwhelmed. Trust me. It's not as bad as it seems. First of all, lets get some templates for you to start with and you can get some sizing ideas based off of that.

Here's a link to different sizes

And if you're just starting out you might want to use Sintra as a material. Relatively inexpensive and is easily formed. Here's what I used at a good price. It will be more than enough for a full kit for you and your girlfriend, including a lot of mistakes.

What I usually do when I feel overwhelmed for anything is to make a list. Once you have this list it becomes a lot more realistic and you can watch as it gets smaller and smaller. Good luck!

Armor Planning / Completely overwhelmed
« Last post by ParksTK421 on Today at 02:07 PM »
So I've been very interested in making my own kit for quite some time and am finally willing to put in the work. My girlfriend and myself are making kits to wear to dragon con and the premiere of episode 7 but The only problem is I have no idea where to start. I'm so overwhelmed by all of this and I've watched videos on YouTube but still I'm not sure where to start. If anyone has ANY advice for me I would greatly appreciate it. I'm a die hard fan, just not sure where to begin. And sorry if this post is in the wrong place, I've not done a lot of posting here.
