Once the polymer pieces were ready, they were painted using acrylics. For Buu's belt piece the M was first painted black and then the golden acrylic came next...

While all the filling and fun sanding happened at night, i started preparing for the shoulder pieces and velcro straps.

Great and happy news came by this summer!
Battle of Gods had already been released in a few other countries including Mexico (Sept 2013) so being so close to the california-mexico border there was no way i would miss it! Ended up watching it twice and loving it! So, of course i jumped with excitement upon hearing it was finally going to be released in the USA. Luckly i was on summer break and had enough time to get another project started up!
Thus, in lieu of its release i decided to make a pair of saiyan armors for my friend and i to wear as we enjoyed watching dbz on the big screen!
I'm finally sorting thru the pile of images so Here it goes!
My initial idea was to simply make the chest and back plates with the simple straps...my friend preferred the saiyan armor with the fancy shoulder pads. So, why not give both armors both? Hence, the project now involved interchangeable shoulder pieces. It wouldn't be a complete cosplay without the gloves, boots and blue undergarment, would it? So that got added onto the list!
the second armor was then applied its coats of fiberglass resin and cloth+resin interior lining...once both were at the same stage...came more good smelling fun stuff! body filler! sanding!
