The Magic Armor

The Magic Armor -  - Magic Armor Link
Here it is the main part of the costume. Oy I thought this was going to be a lot tougher than it ended up being. Still gotta put the little wave things along the edges but this is close to being finished. After this it goes out to the garage to be coated with fiberglass and painted.

Amazing cosplay, I got a question for you:

when you say that your going to cover it in fiber glass are you going to use fiberglass strips with epoxy or do you use something else to hold the fiber glass on?

once again, beautiful cosplay.

I just paint the resin over top of it to make it look like one peice. I use the strips of cloth mixed with resin on the underside for support.

I responded to fightstar in a PM but just in case anyone else was wondering how I made this stuff its basically craft foam and I curve it with a heat gun. Later on its fiberglassed to make it strong enough to endure the trials it undergoes at cons XD. So yeah thats about it.

I have to ask you a silly question about your awesome armor. How are you getting it to keep it's shape? The forearms are rather nicely curved. Did you use a heat gun or some other method? Your progress is stunning and simple amazing so far.

This is coming along really nicely, I can't wait to see the finished product!

So sweet. I can imagine how it is bending and shaping all that but I'm sure it'll work out for you in the end! Also can't wait to see this... Woooo!

Understandable. I had to fix mine and I plan on remaking it with wonderflex when I get the time. And then, NEVER AGAIN.

lol yeah I also made my girlfriends shoulder armor too. It's safe to say I'm SICK of making it lol.

TheLadySummoner posted on 04-27-2008 at 10:47 AM:

Suhweeeet! I'm totally excited for this. I know how annoying that shoulder armor is to make, so you gotta respect someone who is making an entire suit of it!

Good luck on that. I refuse to use that stuff since it leads to me passing out and headaches. X_X

Looks very nice! Is the base craft foam too?

Katsumiyo posted on 04-25-2008 at 08:25 PM:

Looks fantastic, Force, those details are amazing.
(I don't post in the Zelda thread; I just lurk.)
Craft foam and fibergless, I'll have to remember that...
