Unusual Gijinka help?

Hello hello, my name is HollowRiku and I'm looking to create a Scyther gijinka costume. This is the refrence image:[IMG]http:/http://th01.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/f/2010/174/d/f/Scyther_Gijinka_by_KE_M72.jpg[/IMG]

I was wondering how might I go about making the armor, I was thinking craft foam but I'm fairly new to cosplay and I'm unsure my skills with craft foam would yield the best results. What might I use to give the "armor" a shiny scale look? I've heard of using plasti-dip.....would that be an effective way to make this costume?

Your image isn't showing-up >_<.

Anyway... I haven't done much armor-work personally, but from what I understand Worbla and Wonderflex are both good options. Perhaps doing some research and looking for armor-making tutorials online might be helpful.

This forum might be a good place to start: http://www.cosplay.com/forumdisplay.php?f=178
