    hehe! been very busy... thanks guys.

    i've done both arms with movable jaws and fitted the body, i'm still doing the pelvic part. most of the details will be glued after the paint...

    [​IMG]


    well hopefully it would still fit her until december so she can maximize the use of the costume. that's the thing about kids, the costume will only last 2-3 months...

    the probem with the foot is solved, she can now move a little bit easier...

    [​IMG]

    still have to cover the holes in the costume, no skin as much as posible...

    [​IMG]

    she's very happy wiyh it, very excited to show it to you...

    thanks guys for the support. updates will be posted asap hopefully with paints... more power to all of you...

    :bigthumb: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.........I can't believe it, it looks amazing. That has been my favorite cartoon/anime/hero ever since I was a little kid. There is nothing more cool to me than that costume. I don't care if this is a predator forum, that is IMO better than any predator costume ever made. Congratulations and kudos on the most impressive Voltron ever to be constructed. I hope you win many contests.
