Post Armor Tutorial or something to help making a suit of armor?

Anyone have a good way to make armor?

I am trying to make the armore for Alphonse Elrich so far materials i have heard are...Cardboard, papermache(spelling), Wonderflex,craftfoam, styrofoam....

Anyone have any better suggestions or can explain to me if wonderflex or craftfoam would be good..and what it is?

Thanks in advanced

I've found a couple tutorials on this:

http://www.jiajem.com/armor.html

http://amethyst-angel.com/armormaking.html

Hopefully either of these can help you. Good luck!
