    excelent work! how did you the rounded rim in the pieces? have you tried this in foam with thickness of 7, 8 mm? such simple, straighforward job and very effective, i suppose you were as happy as your daughter!

    Greetings from Mexico, my friend

    This is wonderful! I've never seen anyone do this outfit! Wonderful idea :)

    Combining the candy bag onto the back of the shield is brilliant!

    Wow that is amazing!!!

    Nice armor! What material did you use for the metal bits?

    The armor is leather.

    there is no metal

    So you spray painted it?

    everything was painted with aluminum spray

    Nice. Leather is really nice and flexible too so it eliminates the issue that some of the more detailed costumes have of breaking, bending, or difficulty in movement.
    Great work!

    Thanks, mobility was one of the variables considered important

    I'm so glad you posted this right AFTER Halloween. That gives me most of a year to get one made.

    I just spent two weeks working at night
    With a year of work, you must be great

    I'm betting that I'll be making 3 or 4 of them in the year. And sized for someone who is 5'11" and 5'6" and 5' and 4'8". They already have boffers
    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foam_weapon) so foam armor seems a logical progression.

    It is logical that if you already have a foam gun, now require foam armor.
    Initially I thought of making the whole armor of foam, but as I had leather in my workshop, I decided to use

    Not guns. 4' long PVC swords covered in pipe foam insulation another 4" beyond the PVC.

    Beautiful work!
    I wish there was more in the way of instructions for each step.

    Buena Paisano...Bienvenido a instructables

    The back of the shield is a candy bag

    The sword is a section of PVC pipe
