Halo Armor Day 28 - Fin for now

Wooooty wooo!
The armor be as done as I think I can handle. It's all pink, glittered and unicorned. :) I even spray painted a nerf gun. :D

 Because I live alone and was too excited to set my laptop right, I was not able to get a good full body. I will soon. For now some pictures.

At AnimeFest in Dallas!

Cosplay Fashion show!

Halo Armor Day 27

A hotter pink for the armor. :D 2nd coat plus glitter. Couldn't get a good picture of it. Now I will paint the details with acrylic and a brush.

I tried spraying a decal but it was too runny. :P Darn my impatience. Okay and then it sorta started to rain so I had to haul everything back in. We'll see if things need yet another coat or not.

Halo Day 26

So I painted the first coat and I ran out of pink paint. I also did a dumb thing. I left my armor outside to the's over 100 degrees. The hot glue started to melt so some pieces  Some things may need to be reglued. :P So I need to get another can of pink...and possibly more hot glue sticks. :P

It's PANK!
1 Coat of paint.
I've also fixed the foam parts that fell off or came apart.

Armor Day 23-25

Many days pass and I've finished "detailing" as much as I think I can for this set of armor.
I've also finished sealing the foam with PVC glue. I'll do a test paint on Monday to see if the pieces need more glue or not.

*sigh* The helmet still looks uneven.
Waiting for everything to dry.

Armor Day 21-22

I have pictures on my camera that I'll post up here later. I haven't abandoned this project yet. Just having to deal with unemployment. :P In any case, I've been patching up and cleaning up my work on some pieces with foamies.

Currently the chest piece and belt are "ready" for sealing and paint prep. So close!
I'm not looking forward to the helmet or forearms. They currently look the worst and need the most work.
