Alphonse Elric full armor?

I am starting this process, having some experience making Ed's automail, and I wanted to make the full armor suit for a fellow cosplayer to trapse around in.

I have gathered innumerable screenshots and been to Lowe's to figure out materials as well as bought a large roll of paper big enough for drawing patterns, but am quickly learning that I have no idea what I'm doing with regards to the shapes of the patterns. Does anyone have patterns already that I can use? figured it was worth asking.

Hmmm. Not anymore, sorry. :\ I just sort of placed things and bent them and cut them and taped them and cut them again etc etc until it worked, LOL.

What materials are you going to be using? I had very good luck using aluminum sheeting covered with wonderflex, but it was VERY expensive and VERY heavy.

heh actually we found this firm but flexible large sheets of bathmat-style plastic smooth material at Lowe's. it's light and structurally good. thanks though. I figure that's mostly what I'll be doing if I can't get them here.

Thank you very much! But I already know how to make the automail arm. I already made it. I'm looking for Al's armor.
