    If you could convert your talents from making this awesome outfit to swimming, you'd be walking all over the place like Jesus! Good work!

    I used Resin, fiberglass matt, on top of that foamies from walmart, a hard foam from the dollar store (it's like styrofoam inside with paper outside), screws, and cardboard. the thight pads and chest used the hard foam, with chest using some foamies to add detail. I also used some straps from walmart by the camping section. the lock straps I used for the belt and the remaing black strap I used for detail on the shoulder pads and chest. To replicate the big screws I used white tacks from walmart and they were spray painted so hard to tell. I used acrylic paint to paint the logos and affects looking at close game saves of the character. so it's basically paper, then hard foam crazy glued then foamies ontop then foamies sealed with elmers glue then everything resined on the outside then inside, resined with fiberglass matt. Screws were smalles I could find and they still went thru hard foam, foamies and since they were sticking out, I used cardboard and more hard foam inside to cover them because they were getting stuck on my clothes when I put on the suit.

    Beautiful job! I realize this is a year [!!] late, but any chance of a set of instructions to go along with those pictures? Your description [above] confused me somewhat... I would really love to be talented enough to make a suit like that on my own.

    since working on this costume, I now use EVA foam and cut it with a razor blade. Basically draw the shape you want on the foam, cut it, then glue parts together with hot glue. THis is cheaper and faster than fiberglass which I did with this gears costume. If you want more info, visit the 405th forum, search on the forum for zeus cog armor. You will find everything you need. This year I made War from Darksiders out of foam, so vote for me. I am on the Epic costume section. Thanks

    how did you find my costume, I can't find it on the main links?

    Very sick man! I am a fan of GoW and i gota say i wish i had this. Quick question, is your mk1 lancer just a prop? or does it work? I'm making a mk2 out a dollar store rifle with working saw and auto airsoft rifle mechanism inside. i hope to have photos uploaded soon. it's not hyper realistic but atleast it's a working model. :) Keep up teh good work man!!

    It is a prop sold with the gears of war game, and it only vibrates and makes a noise. So no, it doesn't work like the real game. I am curious how yours comes out so please send me a link to pics or your progress. Thanks for the compliments and hope your MK2 comes out great.

    Nice job on the suit, but do you still have the papercraft files u used for this build, I have googled them but found nothing, I do see you're using Pepakura if I'm correct, if you still have the original files send me a PM.

    You have no idea how bad I want to commission you to make this for me. :3 Too bad I didn't know about this site last year, I'd have voted for you! I'm a HUGE GoW fan. :3
