I'm doing a full Balmung (http://www.cosplayhouse.com/images/D/hack_Legend_of_the_Twilight_Balmung_costume_ver_01-1-04.jpg) now and I have a few questions:

1) Realistic armor. I was thinking craft foam, but if anyone knows how to make realistic looking metal armor, awesome, Id love you forever! My problem is I want metal to LOOK like metal, and a lot of things dont do it for me. But Im not a metalsmith, which would be great but really tough.
2) Realistic sword. Making a sword that looks real, glints like metal. Maybe even if a type of metal? Im pacing through ideas from hotglue and foil to aluminium.
3) Wings. He can fold his wings around him or have them splay out. I was thinking I would make mine splay out, requiring a mechanism to do so. I'm thinking of making the setup out of wood and making the wings around it, but it'll be tricky. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. (Splay I mean like when an eagle has its wings full spread kindof.)

Annnnnnd since thats basically the whole costume, yeah ^^;
