Halloween Photo Instructable Contest

Hi guys!

I've been inactive for some time, and so here is my new project i've worked on it.
For everybody that played Fallout: New Vegas, this is the Actual In-game Ranger Combat Armor.
Sorry if this is just a slideshow, i don't have that much WIP pictures (work in progress), but if you guys want that i do a tutorial, feel free to ask and i will do my possible!

I used the following things to do it:

For the helmet: - M1 helmet liner (old us army)
                            - Cardboard
                            - Fiberglass resin ( fiberglass cloth to reinforce the inside)
                            - Bodyfiller (Bondo)
                            - Gray and White Spray Paint
                            - Red Duotang for lenses, rubber pipe, 90 degree metal elbow

For the Armor: - EVA Foam ( Children mat that you can put together by pieces)
                           -  Gray paint ( if your foam is gray, no need)
                           - White Paint (for the decals)
                           - For the straps to attach it to you, use a belt, 2 elastic straps and 2 belt buckles (Look at the pictures)
                           - 2 belts

For the arms pads: - small foam pieces
                                    - some tape to attach it ( or anything else)

For the coat: - A brown Cowboy style duster ( or use a pattern like i did)
                       - White paint for decals

Also, i used that pepakura file made by Hugh to do the helmet: http://www.mediafire.com/?f3rldmn2bhfznr7

If any of you have a question, feel free to ask in the comment section and i will try my best to answer it!

Thank you!

    Awesome! I'd recogmend trying to weather your helmet a bit so it looks more like the one in the video game!

    Just a question on where you got the m1 helmet, been trying to find one to start a costume?

    nice one did you add dusting and other effects to the costume later on?

    Thats pretty cool, but I need a very fast easy to make a costume......unless you can sell me one for a cheap price!

    Did you build the helmet with instructions or from scratch ?

    In the for the coat section what is the pattern?

    Congratulations on being a finalist in the Halloween contest!!! Can’t wait to see if you win! Good luck!

    Cheers mate!! I do hope i can win this year!

    Can you post the pattern for the duster or a link to where you got it? I made one out of woodland bdu uniforms but would like to make a leather one
