I think the title pretty much says it all.
First things first, here are the two reference images that I'm using to make my costume:
Originally I was thinking about modifying a blue shirt for the tunic, then designing and making the cape and collar.
Then I thought that that the modification of a shirt might be a little too time-consuming and not very easy to actually do.
For the various pieces of armour, I was thinking about using cardboard then fiberglassing it.
Another problem... the pants. I'm not really a clothing expert, so I'm just wondering - what should I buy for the pants (I really don't have time to make much for the costume, so I want to try and buy whatever I can to save time)?
Finally, any suggestions for the steel thing on the end of the boot?
Sorry that I need to ask so many questions... I've not made a costume in a good 5 months and I'm a bit confused now reentering the world of cosplaying.
Thanks for the help everyone -
