Destiny Hunter Chest Armor WIP 7 by SKSProps
Destiny Hunter Chest Armor WIP 7
Test fit of all of the painted chest pieces.  There are still a lot of little details and bits of armor I need to add before this is complete but it's still a good start.  I'll be working on the hood and cloak in the next day or two then on the gauntlets and leg armor

You can follow the progress on my Facebook page…

Your cosplay is THE most amazing cosplay I've seen in a while! you have a great gallery, but you should organize it a little more. Other than that, fantastic work! I really admire your skill!
