Hiya ! Newbie arrival from CHCH
Post By IRoiMan. 23/06/13, 11:55 am

Hello there, everyone ! My name is Roi and i'm relatively new to cosplay. My first cosplay experience was dressing
as Sandman from Call of duty modern warfare using airsoft gear and guns (bb guns) Not sure if everybody here plays that game Very Happy

I've been in Armageddon expo in CHCH twice and been really looking to be part of cosplay. I've been lurking around for a while and finally joined to this site. For my 2nd attempt, I really wanna dress up as Iron man next year. I'm in the beginning stages of building my first suit.

I wanna share the photos on what i've been working on but i cant post pictures for some reason.

Anyway i look forward making new friends here.

Nice to meet you Roi~don't worry about lurking round the site...i did that too otz/ but once you get to know everyone you'll enjoy the cosplay community~you'll definitely have to put up a sketchbook with progress pictures so i can see how you put your ironman together~

Hi 8)
I suspect you can't include images yet because you're new; you get full access after you've posted a few times. Good luck with the Iron Man suit!

Hey guys and gals, thanks for the reply's

I'm pretty keen to get into it a bit more seriously :) thats why i am here! (And i hope this is indeed the right section of the forums to search for a club? )

What clubs are there in CHCH? as i cant seem to find anywhere, and how would i go about meeting / potentially joining etc.

Since i cant post an image through links. I will change my avatar for you guys to see.

Edit : The upper body parts is almost done. And I have just added lights on chest last night. There are still a lot of work to do though.

You can post pictures and gain full access once you reach 10 posts, iirc.

Could you elaborate on anti-fatigue foam? Most of us are familiar with craft foam/EVA foam, is it similar to that or like an industrial type of foam?

Your suit looks awesome!! It looks neatly put together so far. Looking forwards to seeing the final photos! Very Happy And maybe in person!!

I did not elaborate this. it's about 1/4 inch thickness but im not sure, will check this again. And yes it's like an industrial type of foam. It's quite rare to find this in CHCH.
