Custom Built LARP Suit 2 WIP by vikingvin Custom Built LARP Suit 2 WIP by vikingvin
Earller Look. Still Working it. No Helm in this one. Blue eyes (Lens) swapped out now for Black Sclera.
This was at Icon a few years back (2012) Notice the silly look.

looking awesome man, I love that metalwork on your shoulder.
how long have you been working on this outfit?

Thanks.....I am a film VisualFX Artist by trade and I designed this suit. Still a work in progress. It's made of Aluminum (No rusting).
It's the Helmet from my other gallery picture that sets it off. That was made with real wildebeest horns and horse hair. I was inspired by the movie PATHFINDER.
I wanted everything to be authentic. NO fake furs. Only Buffalo fur(Coming soon) deer and buffalo skin (No hair)
The new version I won't have on Black Sclera contacts) 
I don't know, but there is something very satisfying about building it.

VisualFX artist eh? that's pretty sweet. anything that I might know that you've worked on perhaps?
Aluminium eh, yeah that does only tarnish a little over time, so no nasty rust to worry about. too bad it can't really take much abuse. (unless it's really thick of course XD)

100% authentic is no easy feat to accomplish, but it will be pretty bad-ass to complete it. 
^^ I know what you mean by satisfying, I get that too when I finish something (which I rarely do, and even more rarely post)

True. The pieces are very thick aluminum. I wanted steel but that was too heavy.
All I'm missing us a good Orc 1/2 mask. I mean one that's film worthy and ones used by professional larding.
As for visual fx , the last film I worked on was American Ultra ( the police station scene) was tough but highly satisfying.
