I'm making a Mia cosplay for my friend and it's really a challenge for me. I think I have an idea of how to construct the fur suit but my next problem is what should I use to make the armor/clothing? Should I use a vinyl type of fabric and make the lines(for the lack of a better word..my brain is not working today ><) or should I use something like wonderflex? Any help would be greatly appricated. Thanks!

Here are some reff. pictures to get an idea:

Hm, well I have to say that the outfit reminds me of fabric of some type insted or armor, but I don't know entirely how you would get the fabric to a) not kill you of heat on top of the fur suit and B) bet it to have that form fitting appearance.

I haven't used the technique yet but you could use, for some parts of the outfit, foamy armor...

that explains things really clearly I think but as I said I haven't tried it, yet. I would use that for the arm part. Thats all I realy know that may help. sorry wasn't much aide sorry.

Thank you very much!!! I was thinking the same thing, like maybe I should use some kind of fabric. I am thinking about vinyl, but I don't know since it is true that it might get really hot.

But thanks for the link! I am going to check it out and see if it's a possibility
