Dauntless cosplay noob, how’d I do for a first go?

So I did a Dauntless cosplay for a comic con a while back. I had never made a full body before, and hadn’t really made a weapon prop before. Never worked with EVA foam, and even some of the fx paints before. I learned and will admit fabrication is not my strong suit, I probably will work on that course a bit more.
I’ve also never posted on the forums before simply because I’m shy, but I was wondering if I could get some advice and thoughts on my work… I’m very low budget. Did my best to work with video game physics. I definitely think I can do better. I’m just new

    Fantastic work.  Trying something this ambitious for the first time and with a limited budget is a big challenge.  

    Keep up the good work!

    Just now seeing this. Having made this right out of the gate is impressive. So many parts to this and yet when all is mounted and you side-by-side match it to the inspiration picture, the outlines match, the proportions match. If I look at this in reverse and I imagine what your costume and you would look like turned into a video gane character, this is a comparable transition. Your eye for design, placement and proportion is laudible for sure. Keep them coming! Just an inspired thought..... try a black light (party light) picture of this for comparison to the computer version.

    For a first timer this is spectacular! I especially love the painted woodwork texture.

    Working with video game physics is always a jolly fun happy time. I'm quite involved with people who make Spartans from Halo, so I know how annoying clipping is in video games with armour.

    My main feedback would be for the metallic parts of the armour. If you have access to a way to spray paint pieces (like an outdoors area or a spray booth), you could spray paint the parts a metallic paint (avoid enamels!) for a shiny, even surface.
