Follow my cosplaying here:
I scratchbuilt this Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine Blood Angel Tactical Sergeant, 7th company, 9th squad, costume as a fan. Improved version.
About 350 hours in making, spread over 4 months. The current weight is 25 kg.
Hight: About 210 cm/7' (I am about 183 cm/6' without armor). (To be able to move around easier and be able to use my own hands, the size is a compromize between proper SM size and a normal human.)
Method: Pepakura (foam+hot glue) and some modifications to make it look more like the miniatures. And some aliminum rods, and screws and electronics.
Paint: Red/black is regular indoor wall paint. Silver is spray paint ontop of grey wall paint. Flat clear coat.
Cost of materials: At the present about 2500€.
Eyes built from modified Glospex. http://www.goglospex.com/standard/
Getting dressed takes about 15 minutes, and requires a servitor.
