Due to the sleek look, I had to make some changes to the overall patterns. I also didn't want to use craft foam for the raised sections on the thighs, back, or anywhere else I could get away with it, just to add to the look and also not have to use as many parts. To start, though, since the design was based off the ME3 look, I decided to start on the shoulder bells.
You can also see my latest attempt in getting the elbow diamonds to look cleaner.
Finished up the chest piece, and the weapon/shield thingies, then Plasti Dipped everything.
As always though, the wait was totally worth it.
Each leg piece went through basically the same process, which was easier as I went up each layer and taping off the layer below.
Well, all that was left was strapping, but at this point I revealed on my Facebook page the overall design. Seemed to go over pretty well, which was a relief! I had been second guessing myself at the brightness of the colors, but everyone seemed to like it anyway.
