Magneto and Jean Grey / X-Men
Magneto / Days of Futures Past and Jean Grey / X-Men The Last Stand
Magneto was my first real armor that I made for my willing husband. The chest piece is made of EVA floor mats, as is the helmet. I used Evil Ted’s tutorial on how to make a helmet using EVA, and I was hooked.
Jean Grey was a hell of a costume to make. It’s all silk dupioni and I didn’t have a serger at the time (gah!). Or a pattern. So I made it all up as I went. Now that I know a thing or two, and I have a serger, this project would take me half the time to make again.
Materials: Eva foam, bondo
