  3. 44 and just submitted my TX. I love cosplay.. will do it till it's no longer fun.
  4. I dont have an answer for this. How big is it on you or for who you are making it? There are some really good builders on here that might have ideas.
  5. The entire thing is scaled up for "Big and tall" people. The standard size Breastplate literally fits inside of the AM2. it's gonna be large.
  6. I dunno how does it fit you? have you built it and put pads in it yet? Helmets are a standard size. The OLD AM helmets were HUGE like the armor. but those are no longer approvable. The helmet should be fine.
  7. There are always ways.. Dont get discouraged but you do have a task ahead of you. In order to trim those legs and arms small enough you will for sure have to use the boiling method to get them round again.. or if you are REALLY awesome with a heatgun which after messing with mine I'm scared of it.. We stuck with boiling.. You can reshape them down to a proper circle again. As for the Torso some of the more experienced builders will need to chime in. I'm sure it can be done. But will for sure be tricky.
  8. I can BARELY get mine on even when screwing it on.. in armor with restricted movement it's virtually impossible.. I need options as well. member of the fathead brigade.
  9. At your size doesnt the torso dwarf you? That part seems like it would be a lot harder to modify than the legs.
  10. AM2 is built for people that are well above the norms. it will fit people up to 6'5 with little modification. Myself as an average size person 5'11 210 had to take over 2 inches out. You will have to take MUCH more than that. You would have been better off with an average size armor. Yes you can do it.. but there will be a LOT of work to do it. Heating and reshaping curves on those pieces is a lot of work and even myself at my size had to do a lot of heating and reshaping and retrimming over and over till it fit. Where my friend that is 6'4 needs to do virtually none of that.
  11. Most makers are not going to want to separate a kit. There are only 2 "large" armor makers out there really. AM2 and RT Mod
  12. Wes reach out to us on Facebook. We have a recruit page setup. Imperial Academy Star Garrison. Lots of building and waiting going on right now. But you should join. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N910A using Tapatalk
  13. Both of these are pretty valid, Aaaron as thin as it is it would tear if I tried to anchor it at the ears though. and I've tried several types of tapes at the middle which all it wants to do is wrinkle the material as the eye's themselves have so much ridge they wont lay flat without crinkleing. This is by far the msot fustrating thing in this build so far.. something so simple is turning out to be so hard. Cutting for each eye may be my best bet.. that or finding some kind of flexible plastic sheild I can cut and use to stiffen it so I can use the ear anchor method. Looked at a bunch of shops cannot find anything like that though.
