unfortunately, i think it doesn't look very good. However this is easily fixed i believe. First tailor the outfit to the model this is a very important detail, just ask any fasion designer or movie costume designer. The second detail is another one taken from the film industry, give the costume a little bit of a dusting, age it slightly. This will heighten the realism and make certain pieces of the armor actually look heavier and more robust. I think they did a good job on the craftsman ship, it just needs a bit more TLC and to get it from looking like store bought costume to movie quality costume. Not knocking it at all, but it needs a bit more love.

I totally agree with you. You said it better than I did.

What the hell is up with all the bitching? "tailor to the model"? It's sitting on a mannequin ffs...(and the pictures of it with a guy in it actually make it look more impressive imo)I think they did a marvelous job of bringing it to life. Within the limitatations of reality ofcourse: where metal and eyes and gems do not glow (under normal circumstances obviously, I'm well aware of certain materials' physical and chemical properties)There's a picture flaoting around the internet of a ugly guy commenting on a girl "how he would not hit it". It applies.Detractors, admit it: You want this.
