this costume took about 3 months in total to make. a lot of poster board, hot glue and sharpie markers black and the cool new silver ones. i used the green metallic rustolium spray paint, 3 coats. a moto helmet w/ gold visor. knee pads with velcro for the upper legs. most everything had velcro dots for easy in and out. the main thing was scale measuring everything off an action figure. the poster board cuts easy and can be bent and shaped a little when wet.
