Ahhhh... I see, well, I am pretty experienced with paper mache and I know exactly the amount of stuff I need to use for the goop.

I was just wondering in case I needed a more sturdier material for boots close to the ground. Then again, I saw people cosplay as giant mechas that had paper mache boots without problems.

I guess what I'm asking for is a boot pattern for those "Megaman character boots" that such characters from Megaman are known for. I will likely do Starmen since Jewelman's requires too much geometry, though it is doable, you just need to be good at nets in order to make his helmet.

I think Jewelman would be fun since I can act like a fruitcake (though then again, I AM a girl)

By the way, how does my Splash Woman helmet look? I should have pictures up on my profile...
