    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!

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

    The armor is leather.

    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!

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

    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.
