I would seriously like to make a Shredder costume. Any suggestions? Answered

Thats right, Shredder. Not like the office appliance. Like the TMNT villian.

Ideally it would look like this: Enter the Shredder
But I imagine it will end up more like this: Costume image from Flickr

What kind of materials should I use? Any ideas for getting the shapes right? I don't want to spend too much.


Looks like Skateboarding Protection Pads, and either foam, or some other material for the spikes, Check your Local Charity Shop/thrift store

For certain parts (shoulder pads, for example) Indymogul provides a nice tutorial about building armor (Halo armor in this case, but it could easily be modified for your Shredder request)
