This is really cool! What material is it made of? Craft foam?

I got to this part of the game this weekend, and I'm a little obsessed. I've been looking at the photos on your blog, and I'm really impressed!! It turned out gorgeous!

I haven't done a lot of work with craft foam, but it seems a much easier route than actual leather.. How easy was it to move in? Were you able to sit down? (Thinking about the wearability of craft foam armor.) I saw that you mentioned buckles and velcro - how difficult did it end up being to get in/out of?

It turned out ok. However the way I had made it was by hot gluing all the pieces together and that turned out to be a bad idea because it made it hard to bend over and impossible to sit (though that only really had to do with the way I designed it. Buckles and Velcro worked well, and it was easy to get on.

What I'm doing now is recreating a more lore-friendly version in foam as a template (since I can't get the old one apart) that will have fully articulated joints for range of motion. And with this template, I intend to make it out of leather this summer because I love this armour so much, and it'd be kick ass.

I'll be putting pictures/references of my template up when I finish it so that people can have a better idea of how it all fits together.

Good luck with yours and feel free to ask me any questions you have.

Good to know! And thanks. I look forward to seeing your second version, too. I'm thinking I may do mine in some kind of quilted fabric, instead of foam or leather. Easier to move in, breathes, and less intimidating for me. ^^; Good luck to you, too!
