You'll get your suit WAY faster if you go with Halu.

Well I suppose I'll start my zord costume soon as I get a TON of posterboard and cardboard. Since I have no previous experience (and since corazonazul hasn't been on here in quite some time...) I'm going to ask you guys to help me out with a few things:

-Which Megazord would you like to see? Right now my top 3 picks are a toss-up between the Thunder Megazord, Jet Icarus & the Mega Tigerzord. I'm leaning towards Jet Icarus since it's the more blocky out of the 3 and seems like it would be a bit simpler to start off with.

-I looked back at corazonazul's old threads on his costumes. Seems he used (for the most part) a lot of posterboard & some cardboard. The paper tape was used to smooth everything out it seems. I didn't see what kind of paint he used though. Any thoughts what kind it could have been?

-If I decided to layer the costume w/something to make it more sturdy, what would anyone reccomend? Is there anything I could use that goes on moist or like clay or something similar but dries into a plastic type material?

Thanks for any help again guys!

There is a guy named David Graze on facebook. He made the Tigerzord costume. I'd send him a message inquiring about all that. I think he would be more helpful as he would have more experience.

So how do most of you keep the various cuffs on? Do you directly attach them to the gloves via velcro or something else?

I've been trying to figure out the best possible method to keep my Gokai Silver gold wrist cuffs on.

I used velcro to help close my GokaiGreen cuffs. I put two pieces on the cuff itself inside. I didn't do anything to my gloves.

So they just stayed on due to a tight fit around your arm/wrist?

Edited into the post, but talking about the gold, Gokai Silver ones.

I can take a picture and show you tomorrow. I tried two different ways to help give it a proper seal. Unfortunately the one way didn't work well enough.

You could always ask Jiraiya or GilMexRanger. Both are doing GokaiSilver cosplays.

A picture would be great, thank you. I didn't want to go and apply something to a pair of gloves, since then reusing them for another costume would be bleh (although now I'll have two pairs but... still...).

I'll give them both a PM, see what they have to say about their methods as well.

Hey, guys! I've finally decided to wrap up my MammothRanger costume after sittting in a box for a few years (the costume, not me). I got the suit a while back from Tech_Styles and I'm wondering if it'll still hold up these days. All I need to do is take in the arms, and that part is ready to go.

Planning a Silver Guardians costume for the Lexington Comic and Toy convention in March. Anyone know a good resource for the CGD patch on their arm? Or a place that makes custom patches if you make the design?

Thanks.

Are there any definitive mods to the Blade Blaster? More specifically, has anyone managed to keep the actual blade itself and make it look good? I'm modding one of mine right now (removed the electronics, sealing up the screw holes, etc.) and I'm thinking that I should reallocate the trigger as a release for the blade, so that it'll snap out with the help of a spring.
