N7 Armor Test Fit II by hsholderiii N7 Armor Test Fit II by hsholderiii
Had my roommate help me take a photo since the mirror self shots weren't working out. Thanks Melissa!

Reworked both shoulders and added some black details. I attached the inner and outer shoulders since having them separate didn't limit my range of motion any less. Plus I wanted the outer shoulder to maintain the correct distance away from the inner piece.

Started experimenting with Plexiglas for the visor. It is not my first choice and I'm not a fan of how brittle it is. But it heat forms well and I have no other plastic that is 17" wide. I'll take suggestions :)

Thanks for reading

I am trying to make an armored costume for this year's Halloween, do you have a template for your armor?

I don't know how it heat-forms, but you could give lexan a try? It's fairly forgiving, I've found, for basic applications. (meaning I used it on a greenhouse).

Just a thought.

Thanks for the tip. Someone else also suggested lexan to me. Any idea on where you would buy that? I was able to form a decent plexiglass visor over the weekend but it still needs a little finessing before it can be used for anything.

[link] here might be a good place to start, but I'd shop around a little just to be sure you got all the necessary research (sucks to buy something you can't use) and the best price for the required quality.

Glad to be of assistance. :)

Well, fortunately (or unfortunately) there is a lot in the Mass Effect universe to make! :)
