..I think this is the right place to post this..? OTL

And I think they're pauldrons? They're armor. They go on the shoulders. Yeaaaah.

Anyway.. so at first I decided to try craft foam first using a craft foam tutorial.. and I gave up on that idea after wasting three sheets of foaaaaammmmm.. and getting basically no where.

So then I bought shoulder pads with the exact shape I needed.. and thought I could somehow.. build on that.

AHAHAHAH..no. ;;

Now it's about.. six days before the convention, and I'm basically going crazy about them.

Can anyone help?

Kind of on a low-budget too.. so. asdfghjkl;

..Anything will help at this point.

Maybe you can put aluminum foil over some shoulder pads.

i'd say craft foam. you can actually mold craft foam by using heat. I just heat up a burner on the stove and mold it over the heat.

OR you could make a balloon base and then cover it with oh what's that called...paper mache?
then you could put scupley or something over it.

or use wonderflex but I've never used it ^_^

Here's a picture of how my pauldrons turned out after a week of messing around with craft foam. I'm thinking about making a tutorial if people request one...
