  1. Well everything worked out guys, thanks for all the advice. Got new shoulders, body and thighs sent to me. Everything fit for most part and wore it at work at my movie theater. All the kids loved it. Shoulders in pic are old shoulders. Working on replacing them with new ones soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hopefully this is the right place, but I'm just so excited that I forgot to post this earlier. Dressed up in Armor for my work at theater. It was a blast and I can't wait for more to come. Now just need to submit for full approval and can't wait for what is to come in the future. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I'm currently trying to lose weight to fit it better. RS Props is going to look at pictures I sent to see what can be fixed. I'm 243 and trying to get down to 200 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The top of thighs are to tight. I've tried to pull them up but they don't budge from where I had them at Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Fully understand what you both are saying. The measurements were taken by professional seamstress per the sheets requirements. I emailed the measurements exactly as the seamstress had wrote down. It's a huge possibility that I gained weight during the time. For pants size I gave a 38 waist because that's what my pants say and what they asked for. My pants sit on hips though so maybe that was an issue. Would back muscle interfere with how the shoulder bells fit? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. So I was able to finally get some pictures of the armor. The shoulders seem to small since measurement guide doesn't ask for should measurement. The thighs don't go up all the way so I can't bend knees at all or put the lower legs on. My knee is a little above the bottom so hits the armor instantly. They replied to my email and will be sending these pictures to them as well in order to get it fixed hopefully. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I will be posting pictures of it shortly. I was doing the A.M 2.0 build and with school and career i ran out of time which was no fun. I loved working on it. In storage, pieces of the armor got cracked in half probably from roommates putting stuff on it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hey everyone, so maybe I'm putting it on wrong but I can't get my right side of kidney plate to clip to the rivet. When I try to pull the strap there's about a 1" gap from the clip. Also the back, kidney plate won't budge any closer so there is a huge 6-8" gap from front to the back. Could I unclip the left side and add velcro to add some space on left side for right side to clip together. Help???? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Welcome and good luck with all the researching. I researched for a few months before I decided to take the plunge. I'm still in the process of my build and I'm still doing research along the way. Don't forget to check out some of the build threads to get a good feel on things as well Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. So finally was able to have my friend come over and help with the fitting of firearms and the biceps. This is what I have so far. Biceps Forearms Lower forearm I think I'm going to remover the return edges on the top and bottom of biceps and remove only the bottom return edge of the forearms. To get a nice snug fit but still be comfortable. The return edge on both biceps seems to be digging into my arms. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. So finished the helmet for now. It was a pain but it's done. Here it is in all its glory I must say. I'm very proud of myself and can't wait for the next steps of this journey. Thanks for sticking by everyone! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. So I'm on the last stretch of completing helmet basically. I'm going to go back and paint ears later. I'm so close to finishing helmet. I can't wait to start on the main armor. So for the tube stripes I put one side on so far. All 16 stripes fit on there. Only problem is when I went to look at other side...not all the stripes fit:/ I was looking on the costuming index and all it says is between 9-16 stripes. My question is do both sides have to have an equal amount or can one be 16 and the other 13? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. If yours came like mine, they should be pre formed. All I did was squeeze the base of each one in a little. Just enough so it can fit inside the mic with a snug fit. Hope that helps Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Put the lens in roughly to make sure everything fit. I made holes in the lens and attached it to the ear screws. I also went ahead and put the hovi mic mesh in. Haven't glued them in yet. Does the inside of the mics have to be painted white? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Went ahead and worked on screwing in the bottom ear to close the gap as best I could. I've seen pictures that the original helmets did have gaps in the ears. So I feel that I've done a pretty good job..hopefully. What do you guys think? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
