  1. Well, I'm not too sure if I could get Centurion. Just basic approval will do for me! For now, anyway Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  2. Can do! Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  3. Forgot to reply via your message- added the message via the thread instead- oops Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  4. Oh, shoot, yes! I'm sorry I didn't update on here! My armor is finished for the most part! I just gotta trim the legs a little more and add the knee plate [emoji106] my goal really was to just get it wearable enough for Halloween. I was able to get done thanks to the many many armor parties I went to before Halloween Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  5. 70th explorers. I'm going to an armor party tonight, so I'll ask them about the cod Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  6. I did have to get it tightened at one point, since you could see it before. It was loose, so you could see it hanging when you looked from the side. But, I can see if I can losen it a little bit Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  7. So should I detach the elastic from underneath? Because that's mainly what's pulling it back. Or keep it there and just secure it to the ab? Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  8. There's honestly nothing else I can do for trimming the cod. The rounded end part is what's digging into my thighs, but I've already trimmed so much off. Any more trimming and it would deformed, from what I've been able to tell Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  9. Finally some updates on my armor! A lady from my Garrison came over on Saturday to help me size some of my pieces, especially my torso pieces, since they were very large and laid flat on me. Since I'm a female and well, curvy, she heated them with a heat gun and brought the kidney and butt plates in for me. Below you can see before and after stuff. My butt and cod are attached at the sides to make a pair of pants I suppose, haha! And the ab and kidney are connected now too. The chest and back have the shoulder straps attached so my torso is good to go [emoji106] My chest DOES cover a bit of the ab, but hers did too and she is part of the 501st, so she told me not to worry too much about the chest covering most of the ab buttons. Speaking of ab buttons, just got those painted: All I have left to do is: - trim and connect the thighs(almost done trimming) -trim and connect the shins(almost done trimming) -put more padding in my helmet -attach biceps to forearms -attach legs to the ab -get handplates on my gloves -make my belt smaller -construct thermal detonator -attach holster to belt NOTE: I know my butt plate seems up high, though if I bring it down, the cod goes down too, and digs into my thighs. She has hers positioned high and no one had a problem. I have a picture below of when I bought it down a bit. The cod hurt! Ouch! The strap connecting the two below also seemed to hang a bit but... I'll probably have to deal with it. Bringing the butt and cod down DID look better. And that's about it! Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  10. Yeah, I'm just not sure how much more to modify it, since I've already cut quite a bit from the neck to bring it up Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  11. More progress on the armor [emoji106] So, put together all of the front and most of the back. Things to fix: - connect the ab and kidney on the sides so they close -put padding in my helmet -get shorter elastic and Velcro to connect my kidney and butt plates and kidney and back Other than that, I think it's turning out good! DEFINITELY will need to install my fans once my building is done. It gets stuffy in there! Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  12. Updaaates~ Got to go to another armor party last night, which was once again, a huge help! One of the members helped me finish up my forearms to where they fit me a looot better. Also trimmed a little on the top of the chest plate to bring it up so more of the ab shows. And began strapping! Yay, progress! Torso is nice and fitted. Just have to strap together my arms, finish strapping the torso and begin the legs. (Also, disclaimer, my forearms aren't THAT big. The angle of the photo is just weird.) At least I'll look buffer now, haha! Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  13. I'll have to try that next time Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  14. I unfortunately never got a picture, the at one of the wrist ends, the strip shifted to the side so that one of the ends of the forearm was exposed, though I removed the cover strip and shifted it over so it's fixed now Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  15. Finally made some progress! One forearm is done! Putting on cover strips is the WORST! [emoji21] On one side of the finished forearm, the strip kept shifting everytime I put down a clamp, so it ended up a little weird. I'm just...gonna leave it for now. Below is a picture of one forearm that is trimmed, and one that hasn't been trimmed yet. Huge difference! Curse my small forearms! Marked the second Popeye arm to cut length wise, and also marked my chest piece. Just gotta cut the neck a couple centimeters at a time Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
