Can it be part crocodile instead of monkey? I'm really not a fan of monkeys. They throw poo, and that's super gross.

The shoulders are coming along nicely, Brandon! Love the look of the frosting and the clear coat.

Wow! I have really been full bore on this little labor of love over the last few weeks. I haven't taken much time to post progress, but I have been taking pictures along the way. Here are the latest:

The neck ring detail work is finished:

Image
Image
Image

The Jumpsuit fitting went well. Steve did a good job sewing her up for me. After this, we brought up the torso length along with some other adjustments, but you can really see where it's headed in this photo:

Image

The backpack Rigging will be under the jumpsuit. It is made from some luggage straps I bought at Walmart. ($1 a piece!)

Image
Image
Image

The shoulder foam was coated in an Elmer's Glue-All wash to seal it and then given a couple of layers of Epoxy Resin. This stuff is like painting with Honey and tough to sand because it is soo hard. The end result was a bit bumpy and uneven, but Based on the weathered condition of the cuffs and other parts, I kinda like it. (It reminds me of the finish on an old metal bridge that my firm inspected the other day. Sorta like it has seen a few coats of rust and paint, etc...)

In glue on their custom painting and drying rack:

Image

The Resin begins: (At G.A.M.E.)

Image

...in paint and weathered:

Image
Image
Image

...and strapped on: (I feel like a linebacker in these things, but they weight next to nothing!)

Image

The boots are another animal altogether. I am starting with a pair of Frankenstein boots that Mr. Robert Brill donated to my cause. (Since Mr. Freeze is over 6' tall and I am a little under 5'-8. :-)) I am building up the comic book/animated look by adding foam and more foam to bring them from Universal monster to comic book villain. This will all be wrapped in blue vinyl and topped with cuffs that match the gloves and foam "metal" toe covers"

Image
Image
Image

Cuffs for the top in silver:

Image

Toe covers, made from floor mat foam:

Image

Here you can see the shoulders have a finished foam liner glued in as well as the cuffs and toe parts...

Image


I plan on wearing this on Saturday night to a Halloween party as sort of a test run. There is a lot I still want to do to it before I wear it to a Con, though.

...and now to finish those boots....

OK...well here are the results of all my efforts so far. I have worn it to two Halloween activities and gotten nothing but praise.

Without further delay, here is my Mr. Freeze (Halloween Edition)
ImageImage
ImageImage

So far, I have decided to make the following upgrades for VisionCon:

-Re-illuminate the Goggles for the signature red glow and add reflective inner lenses to hide my eyes with red reflective tape for camera flashes.

-Ventilate the Goggles for anti-fogging

-Construct new boot cuffs from 6" piping for better scaling

-Improve the back pack harness to alleviate the crookedness after an hour or so.(It rides up.)

-Make blue vinyl belt pouches

-Improve the mic mount for the voice amp.

-Consider upgrading the cold gun hanger.

What does everyone think?

Massive thanks to my Legion Brothers and Sisters for screaming their fool heads off for me at PCC. You are the best! Here are a few of the pics of myself I have managed to find around Facebook:

It seems like I find a few more everyday!


Thanks again for everyone's support. It was really nice to win the costume contest, but the adoration of my peers was the real prize. (too sappy?) :-)
