Steampunk Armour

So this is really an expansion of my steampunk gauntlet. It includes a device that's worn in the center of the chest. Again itís at least nodding to Iron Man (itís mere coincidence I started making this after seeing the Avengers ;0).

It also includes a sculpted shoulder pad which was partially inspired by the armour in Game of Thrones, although to be honest it ended up looking more like something from Warhammer 40k. This was sculpted in chavant oil clay over a frame made of cardboard and plastic. I then made a mould and cast it in fibre glass.

I wore this to Lincoln's Steampunk festival Weekend at the Asylum. It went down pretty well and plenty of people took photos. Here're some pics from the event.
