Skyrim Nightingale Armor...uh oh

So today is April 6, comicon is being held in Calgary on April 27-29...I haven't yet started and I hope to complete and entire set of Nightingale armor from Skyrim. I'm thinking EVA foam for about 90% of it using different thicknesses. I am going to post pics as soon as I start with my progress, so most likely later this evening.

Hoping to get some good advice each step of the way, off to Michael's i go!

Having troubles with my computer and uploading the photos, I've completed the nightingales symbol, the front "abs", the "obliques", and one vambrace. It's proving not as hard as I anticipated but the end result will be the proof. I'll upload on a buddy's computer as soon as I can. All in all...not bad for a nights work!

Hope to see pics of this soon. For advice I suggest sealing the foam in plasti-dip. You'll already have a lovely black to it once you do.

@Gambit86 thanks for the tip, I'll be sure to do so!

@Noose heh, well this is my first CCEE and also my first ever using EVA foam so "well crafted" might be an exageration but time will tell

@Jeggis Nice! Look forward to finding you

@ Thadine wicked! I'll be there the 28th, as it's the only day I could get away from work. By chance did you take pictures with jay and silent bob last year? Couple of my buddies go every year as the same thing

Just had to finish that off.
Can you post some pictures, if that's not too much trouble?

It's not exact but I guess that's just my personal spin on it other pieces are cut out and sized just not molded or worthy of attaching yet

That's pretty sweet. Awesome, in fact. Ha ha. Better than anything I could do. I'll just stick to my sewing rather than armor...xD
