Start by making the front of the chest piece out of cardboard. Arcee is a girl, so she has a bust. (pic 1)

I added a neck protector and also a “rib cage” (pic 2)

From there, i made a little grate in the front of the rib cage. measure and cut out the section. you can even use the cardboard from the section you cut out. (pic 3)

Any details that you want to add, you can do so at this time. i added some details to the collar. (pic 4)

Now make the back part. It does not have to be fancy, but something that works well to the front. Now that you have a front and back piece, you can attach them together with velcro.

Arcee also has a little grate on the back of the chest piece (Pic 5)
