Hey guys, I'm trying to cosplay as Iron Tager from BlazBlue, I'm fairly new to cosplay, but I've been okay at it in my attempts so far. I need to find a material for his bottom half, which I think is metal on the actual character, so I need it to be sturdy so it will hold form while I'm standing, but also flexible enough so it doesn't snap when I sit down. Unless I'm just going to stand for an entire day at the convention (which I really don't want to do), I need to find a solution. Thanks for your help in advance and tell me if you need to know anything else and I'll gladly tell more. :)

Here (http://entropyhouse.com/penwiper/costumes/helmsdeep.html) is a good tutorial for making armor out of craft foam. A friend of mine made her Fate/Stay Night Saber armor using this tutorial and it turned out well.

I wouldn't recommend actually sitting on it, but it's easy to sew on snaps to the top of the armor and just detatch it if you're planning on sitting.
