View Full Version : Armor?

02-25-2003, 02:50 AM
Sorry to bug you all, but I'm wanting to do a costume from Valkyrie Profile. I have no clue how to make armor. If you could give me any tips on how to do it or what kind of stuff to use. I would really be grateful.
Thanks for your time. ^-^

Here's some useful sites:


There are lots of ways to make armor. The cheapest is to find things that are approximately the right shape and cover them with papier-mache. Other options are foam, plasterstrip, plastic, fiberglass.

Me too! ^_^ My boyfriend is pretty good with constructing things like this, so I'm also utilizing his help. I'm going to show him these sites and ask for his opinion on what method we should use. Thanks for the links, Sarcasm Hime

If it's a full-body costume and you need to make a body cast first, try www.bioweapons.com and www.studiocreations.com/stormtrooper I personally like the hot glue method on the bioweapons site for the Guyver armor.
