So i'm cosplaying as Zelda (TP version ^.^ ) And I have no idea on how to make her shoulder armor, I thought of using cardboard, but if it rains at my event next month I won't be able to use it XD Can I have some ideas please ?

Thank you ^.^ :wave:

Craft foam should work just fine to make the shoulder pieces (then you could add the details with more craft foam, hot glue, wire, etc. You have a variety of materials to choose from for that). I would be wary of using cardboard since it can't make those nice curves as easily.

The rain problem is an issue most cosplayers have :( I think we tend to just count on events being indoors or not raining (you can always change inside the convention bathroom/hotel or bring a poncho or tarp to put over yourself to get inside). But if it's an entirely outdoor event I'm not sure if there is a good solution :(
