So I made this, and I have some comments on the fit. I was lucky to have similar dimensions as the person who uploaded this, but be sure to change it if you're very far off of the original.
The parts on the inside of the elbow make it so that the entire gauntlet gets forced up into your wrist, which hinders movement and can be really painful. I'd recommend removing everything within that little notch area so you can actually reach your chest when you wear this.
The ankles are really wide and can bang together if you walk without care. The knee plates are really narrow and can be uncomfortable when worn - I added foam to the inside to kinda keep it off my knee, but removing some of the border volume would be good too.
The thighs are a smidge too tight on the knee unless rotated to the right position (but that also keeps them up - more on that later).
The slots on the lower back piece are a little narrow - I used a web belt to keep it in place, and it was a struggle to get it in until I widened the hole.
There are D-rings that are missing from the cod piece and hip armor, but there are files on thingiverse that print in place and are easy to glue on or melt together.

This is how I attached some of the more finnicky pieces:
I can use 9" jungle boots that are only laced halfway and folded over to suspend the calf pieces in the right position. With a piece of foam on the inner thigh, the thighs can suspend themselves as well.
I drilled holes in several pieces to add elastic and velcro to:

  • Knees (as far apart up and down as possible)
  • Shoulders (on top to wrap around the upper shoulder piece)
  • Chest (on the parts that wrap around to the back on the sides)

I also used super/hot glue to attach velcro or elastic to some pieces:

  • Boot covers to wrap elastic around the bottom of the shoe
  • On the shoulders to wrap elastic around the biceps
  • On the cod piece as seen in the example picture
  • On some of the lower torso pieces to reinforce their attachment points.

I used a MOLLE vest to attach most things to. It also negated the need for the neck guard and shoulder straps. For the base layer, I used digital camo BDUs.

I hope this write up helps future cosplayers!

Thank you for the tips! It's always tough being the first to create things.

I do have to thank you for uploading all this, since I have no modeling skills myself!

I've also had a chance to wear it for a full day, and I have a couple tweaks I'm going to make which may be optional for others.

  • fuse the kneepads to the calf pieces, since they would gradually fall down over time anyways and the straps are uncomfortable
  • remove material from the inside of the thigh pieces. These gave me bruises, though it could just be from my larger thighs. Also might help with mobility in the knees.
  • add straps to keep thigh pieces on belt, so they won't fall down and impact on the knee
  • also might have to wear suspenders with the pants to keep them up.
  • straps on the shoulder pieces might need rework as they kept falling off the Velcro. I just gave up on them eventually.

Don't worry, I'll put your tips to good use and let you know when everything is updated.

Very nice. Keep these coming.

oh damn that was quick! looks great, thanks man!
