Thank you for these compositions, Bishop!

They're great as usual so please keep them coming! :wink:

I'm especially like the first pic. If they only had used the original mask for this promotional photo back then...

Really good to finally see your completed imperious leader costume Redeye. A job well done totally awesome a 1000% more superior quality than the original one i dare say.
The thing is with costumes is that whereas on the film or Tv series generally the costume is only visible for just a few fleeting seconds. In real life costumes worn in public really have to be top notch with Jo Public standing just feet away from you in broad daylight. Many many costumes today are far more superior than the originals.

Ps im waiting for John hotoshop work with your costume coz i know hes great at photoshop.

At long last, here are the latest news for our Eminence!

I've recently finished up (with a little help from my mum) the scale collar which goes on the Imperious Leader's robe.

Here it is from the front and back:

The front scales still needing some black-brushed detailing on them in order to match them to the scales on the mask. But that shouldn't be a problem...

Here are a few additional shots of the Leader in all his evil, scaly glory:

That's f'n cool as hell! Good job I always wanted one, it was one of the coolest evil badguy leaders in my book of all time!! the toy was just so half @$$, a purple alien with an afro.

You nailed it! I gotta see some hires photos they are quite small on my phone.

Thanks again for all your compliments!

I never thought that this project will be such a time consuming undertaking.

It might have worked better if my pal who made the mask wasn't so unreliable...

But hey, it's nearly finished by now, that's what counts! :wink:
