How to Make Cheap Armor

Introduction: How to Make Cheap Armor

Hello! Today I will show you how to make some cool looking armor on the cheap.

Step 1: Parts

Alright, all you need is:

  • A metal speaker plate (mine was 10 in by 7.5 in)
  • Normal printer paper
  • Spray Paint or markers
  • tape (any kind will do)

Step 2: Chooose What Kind of Armor You Want to Make

I chose to base mine off of a piece of armor from the videogame Destiny. Just choose a tv show or video game that has armor, and base your design off of that.

Step 3: Bend the Speaker Cover

The speaker cover is fairly easy to bend and can be bent in many different ways. The armor I chose had many prominent edges, so i bent to resemble a parallelogram.

Step 4: Finish Off the Armor

  1. Cover the speaker plate in paper and cut off the parts hanging out. I had to use two pieces of paper to completely cover it.
  2. Color it the color you want the background to be.
  3. Tape the paper to the plate.
  4. Now, draw the symbol of the armor and place it towards the middle of the plate. Tape it using double-sided scotch tape.
  5. Enjoy your new armor!

Step 5: Add-ons

If you want your armor to look even cooler, I would add LEDs. It is a quick add-on and can make your project look epic. Depending on what colors you used, match them with LED backlights.
