    I'm working on a TF Prime Bulkhead costume for Anime Weekend Atlanta this year. I'm going for a show accurate bot mode so I won't be transforming. This is my fist ever post in Radicons. Hope y'all like it. :) 

    Here's my sketch of what I hope it will look like.

    Here's me trying out the fit on the head piece.

    I had to mosaic out my face because I had a creepy stare in this pic. :lol

    Here I am wearing the "under harness".

    Here's the foam build of the torso. I'm working all from screenshots since there seem to be no pepakura of TF Prime charcters.

    Here's a shot of the back compartment for batteries. My plan is to have the suit wired with LEDs so the eyes, headlights and bumper lights will light up. I'm also planning transforming hand cannons. Stay tuned for later updates. :)

    Woah! Top stuff man :)  Got a great amount of detail so far, especially as it's all being done free-hand. I'll certainly be keeping an eye on this thread.

    This is awesome! I've never seen a how-to-make-a-suit guide or someone actually make a costume before, so this is a very nice treat.

    You, sir, are quite an artist. I can't wait to see how this all comes together:D 

    Will you share some of your art with us too? Your drawing of Bulkhead looks pretty awesome too.
