I'm planning on making a costume for Kouga from Inuyasha, but I realize that I have a problem. I have no idea how to make his chestplate armor! X.@ If anyone could help me then I'd greatly appreciate it! I'm planning this costume for AnimeNEXT (June 17-19) so I do have some time to do it. Pictures are attached if you need reference! Thanks everyone! ^_^

this is actually a very easy one..

try Vinyl back and grayish blue. measure it out so it fits you and has the right propotions. its just getting the shape to fit you is the issue you'll have to experiment. then add pipping or hem tape for the white.

cutting out straps and sewing them on to the chest armor,maybe so you can slip it off and on. or add hooks and eyes so its secure. ^_^

Hope that sorta helped

You could get a used (used= cheaper) pair of football or hockey shoulder pads and use that. Or, you could cut it open and take out the hard plastic part and paint it silver or whatever. I did this with a costume that needed a breastplate-type-thing and it looked really cool when I was done.
