Why hello there...
Post By Fettman. 25/10/12, 02:52 pm

Heya all
My name is Robert and I am a costumer Very Happy
I'm currently studying design in Wellington, and have been costuming on and off in my spare time for about 4 years now. This year I have really started to pick up the amount that I am doing, and the quality of my work.
I figured I'd sign up here and hopefully meet some awesome like minded individuals.

I originally started off doing Wearable Art for a little local show back in my hometown of New Plymouth, and that eventually led me on to costuming.
A lot of what I have done so far has been Star Wars based, but i have done bits and pieces from other sources, but am planning on branching out and really pushing technically myself once uni has finished for the year. Only two more weeks to go! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Anyway here are a few pics of some of the stuff I have done;

Anyway, I look forward to getting to know you all, and sharing my work with you, as well as seeing all the cool stuff you guys are doing.

Thanks guys Very Happy
For the armour I used expanded PVC foamboard (commonly refered to as sintra).
I got mine from Mulford plastics and used two different thicknesses (3mm and 6mm).
I also used a bit of fiberglass for some parts.

Thanks Very Happy
Yea the naki is cool. I'm liking living in Wellington at the moment though. New Plymouth is just a little small for my liking. Makes it too hard to find all the right materials ;D

Thanks Very Happy
No problem, I'm always more than happy to help Very Happy

The 3mm PVC foamboard (sintra) I use is called foamex or foamalite, and the 6mm in called signex. In addition to being thicker, it is also a slightly denser plastic, which makes it less prone to developing dents from wear, other than that the two types are basically the same. Unfortunately 6mm is the thinest signex comes, otherwise I would use that in 3mm thickness as well.

It's funny you should mention Appleseed actually, I have recently been contacted by someone about the possibility of commissioning a Briarios helmet, so keep an eye out for that one ;D
