Modeled after the Japanese live action commercial version for "Ultimate Ghosts 'N Goblins" for the psp.
-Tasset (belt like armoring)
-Black long sleeved shirt
-black pants (I used black jeans, but tights would work too)
The armor, main of the shield, and most of the helm is made completely out of cardboard. All metal simulations were painted the same color of gray.
The main of the torso armor is a cardboard cylinder that has velcrove at the seem for ease of assembly and getting it on. There is a back panel attached to the back of the cylinder to reach up to the shoulders. Between the back panel two suspenders come over the front holding a chest panel that attaches to a velcrove spot on the front for more ease of wearing. On the suspenders two shoulder guards are attatched.
The inside of the shield has a book bag for transportation of goods, however when in full costume it was near impossible to access on my own so it was never used to store anything. To hide the fact that it was attatched, i removed the original back-pack straps and tied on two shoe laces. It was accented with duct tape and then painted.
The Helm started off as a construction helmet, the varying accent pieces were made of cardboard and were either riveted or glued on. And of course painted.
The two gauntlets were cardbord cylinders fitted to just slide over my arms. Back-hand guards are attached by an elastic strap, additionally a single elastic strap jutted toward my hand to slide over my middle finger to keep the Back-hand guards with my hands.
The tasset was cardboard pannels glued and taped to an elastic strap like belt.
The Grieves were store bought steel-toed rubber biohazard boots. And were also painted.
The main body of the Lance was constructed out of Sheet metal riveted together. The tip is rubber and came from a model plane. The handle begins on the inside of the main body of the lance as a pbc? plastic pipe, then a crutch foot extended out of the lance cone to form an adjustable handle. The rubber stopper of the crutch foot was surrounded by a much smaller sheet metal cone to act like an accent piece. It also received a good paint job.
