I've started building Gray Fox -The Cyborg Ninja from the Metal Gear Franchise as it's on my list of costume for the year.
Here's the current progress. I've built the torso so far.
i'm using foam floor mats for the armor. The helmet will be resin. The armor parts are being built 100% freehand using hand drawn templates based on the Play Arts Kai figure
as a reference.
The abs/spine section is next and it's crucial to have a form to work with that has my shape because it has to fit snug underneath the torso and still look aesthetic when I wear it.
So a duct tape form is a must.
