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!

Nice armor! What material did you use for the metal bits?
ricardoruizo (author)  D00M994 years ago
The armor is leather.

leaves skirt Fabic EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) (foamy) is thermoformed in a domestic oven

there is no metal
So you spray painted it?
ricardoruizo (author)  D00M994 years ago
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.
ricardoruizo (author)  Cymru4 years ago
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.
