    I will keep that in mind, but perhaps the third option (between A and B) would be the best.

    Update.6

    Didn't post anything in a while, but that may or may not change.
    So far i have made:

    1)Middle version of sword that surprisingly works quite well with the blade (4 August 2023)
    368026437_1019911252367950_4483187105004281493_n.jpg

    2)Sword is put on hold, decided to make legs(16 August 2023)

    368023385_1461687167915446_4821739105866558079_n.jpg

    3)Legs front details(21 August 2023)

    368058681_799149628617536_9198639311318877229_n.jpg

    4)Additional details + Jet engine "thrust"(22 August 2023)
    368048970_2237317376462619_959180027583721508_n.jpg
    368071210_6507772342670313_7410430697130574130_n.jpg

    i need to cover those somehow. Nevertheless when i finish front details i will move to side parts and side wings and after that maybe i would try to look for red boots.

    This looks awesome! Good ol' cardboard box costumes like I used to make 20+ years ago.

    Update.8

    Excluding colors, Sword is around 67 percent done. It may look rough inside but in my opinion it has potential. If everything goes as planned i might have this sword (without colors) finished by the end of next week.

    1)Sword handle (19 October 2023)

    2)Sword main body(20 October 2023)

    -Main body + handle

    Hey this is looking awesome! Love how detailed it all is! Was wondering, saw a blender screenshot in a previous post, is this made using the paper template export addon? Or is it by eye? Either way, it’s turning out amazing and can’t wait to see the helmet!

    Update.10

    There is a lot i want to show you today, so this update will be a long one. After i post this, i will change photos from previous updates since i see that some of them are unavailable.
    PS: In some photos i blurred out my face, since i don't want to show it yet.

    1)Back section wip(17 November 2023)
    IMG_20231117_223603.jpg IMG_20231117_223611.jpg IMG_20231117_231720.jpg

    2)Weapon storage + Body reveal(24 November 2023)
    IMG_20231124_210452.jpg IMG_20231124_232210.jpg IMG_20231124_235229.jpg IMG_20231124_235515(anonim).jpg

    3)Another look at back section, but this time nearly finished(9 december 2023)
    IMG_20231209_001105.jpg

    4)Finished back section + weapon storage + front view(27 and 28 December 2023)
    IMG_20231227_234305.jpg IMG_20231228_000053.jpg
    IMG_20231228_000101.jpg IMG_20231228_000120.jpg
    Unfortunately blade is a bit too big to fit in that compartment.

    5)Main piece with attached shoulders (29 December 2023)
    IMG_20231229_222329.jpg
    IMG_20231229_231943.jpg
    i plan on adding carboard under shoulder pads, so they won't break hinges.

    6)second body reveal + front and back view(29 December 2023)
    IMG_20231229_230618(anonim).jpg IMG_20231229_230649(anonim).jpg IMG_20231229_230903(anonim).jpg IMG_20231229_230701(anonim).jpg IMG_20231230_000110(anonim).jpg

    Outside of what was shown in the photos i had to change a connection between main piece and waist piece since the main one couldn't stand on it's own without breaking the buckles. if you have any questions regarding the project, let me know here.

    Update.11:
    Hello after nearly half a year. Sorry:( :( 

    To People who are still watching this project:

    -I have not abandoned it. i just have a lot of school stuff to do since my final exams are coming. I will definitely resume the project on 23rd of may(the day of my last final exam) or day after.

    -Currently i'm focusing on Helmet V.2 since the V.1 was way to big.

    -I will try in couple of days bring back some of the photos in previous updates.

    -I welcome any ideas regarding arm thingies and leg parts. i still haven't come up with a way to attach them.

    - Had to modify waist and main body piece so it could stand on the floor without bending the buckle and cardboard.
