I am working on the Anovos TK. I have everything first cut. I need some help fitting and strapping. Here is my upper. Legs are done too but never fitted with boots

Looks good so far and we're shooting more towards the end of August.

Hello,

I have an FX kit that I have stopped and started over the years putting together, but have been trying to find good resources on how pieces should sit when worn. I want this to be year to complete it. I see a lot or posts about how to put together, but few on how pieces should sit when worn. I see posts people say to trim to feel comfortable, but I want to make sure have right amount of space between pieces so too much black does not show and staying proportionate.

So, I am wondering if these armor parties are open invites to anyone? I am looking for help on how to size so proportionate to me. Or can you point me to resource that details how to size length of leg pieces, and torso pieces?

Thanks,
Michael

These are generally open to anyone to attend. I want to have a party at my place sometime but it won't be until (at least) late summer. Problem is, I'm not completely versed in sizing so we'd have to ask a professional to attend as well lol. If we're having one at my place, I'll have to cap it to 6 people.

Ok that sounds good, I already have a set of armor all it needs done is some resizing.
