    I think this is good, but has some weakness, one of which is obvious - it is only connected to the outer frame by the corners, the rest is just hanging. May i suggest using an outer frame of white rod; yellow connector; white rod; yellow connector etc, then connect the yellow connectors to the whites in the plate with green rods? Also, a chain isn't ver comfortable to hold it up. Maybe use elastic, string or horizontal rods going over your shoulders? Besides these, it is very good, 5 stars

    White rod, yellow connector is not possible with the white connectors in is configuration, you have to replace the green rods in the corners with white ones and then make the edge with yellow connectors.
