Your armor looks really good. Nice job. I also really like you saber.
Thanks, Taegin.
The saber is a custom-based on the US Catalyst that I built a few weeks ago

As promised.....

Update on the Sith armor build

Installed some 1/2" strips of elastic on the 'spat' pieces that will be covering my shoes.
This will keep the pieces from moving as I walk around the con


For the knee pieces, I opted to use 1" elastic

These will be adjustable during the day by using velcro for the closures


At this point, the armor is done.
For the first time, I put on the full suit I'll be wearing at Salt Lake Comic Con in September.

A look at the upper body



A look at the leg sections



The whole suit, complete with saber



Finally, a side by side comparison with the Mk1

Thank you very much, Dutchman.
I have to give a LOT of credit to the wealth of information I found on Youtube for working, first with the EVA foam in the Mk1, and later in Sintra for the Mk2

Thanks, guys.
Sean107, for now, there are no plans for a MKIII. Maybe a MKIIa, but not a new full suit

Very well done! I'm finally starting on a Lord Starkiller cosplay now (it's mostly your fault, you gave me some ideas) and I figure I have the lightsaber I need; a tricked out Raven.

But that is awesome, is it your first armour cosplay (apart from the MKI)? I know mine didn't look half as good as that, and I hope mine turns out ok, it's been 5-6 years since I put together an armour set!

I found all sorts of tricks for hiding the con badge for photos; laniards you wrap around a belt with a simple slip knot and tuck it away somewhere, the safety pin ones are much easier usually pin it somewhere less noticeable that you can hide with a sash, cape, or something that can cover a part of your costume, not sure what you can do with your armour, but if you were creative enough to put that together I'm sure you can figure it out. My suggestion would be to sew a flap on your leg that can cover the badge and flip it open for inspection when they want to check it out.

-edit- looking over your armour it may be possible to tuck it under your over coat and simply lift it for inspection when needed.
