This should really be in the construction forums. And without reference pictures, people won't be able to help you out.

First thing's first..Come join the RWBY thread:
It's better to keep all things asking about stuff in the threads already on the series topic rather than making new threads, as in, asking IN that thread.

Anyway this really also does belong in another forum if you wanna get outside the series help (like, people also outside the fandom help on general how to's).

But I have a question..
(to cover the armor so i dont hurt myself if i fall and also to make the armor thicker)
This is very confusing because this is not what cosplay armor is even for..Or armor in general ever..His outfit will NOT help your impact if you fall..Plus unless you just randomly fall over all the time for no reason, than I have no idea why you bother caring about that..You aren't gonna just start falling over because you're in a cosplay..So your reasoning confuses me..Also metal armor will hurh WORSE if you fall..You'd need to make it so thick and unrealistic to the character to make it cushion you..Just go with one or 2 layers of whatever material (I'd personally use cardboard or plastic sheets) you use.

Another thing..Armor sewing patterns? You don't sew this armor..You have to glue it and adhere it somehow (what materials you use will decide what glue is needed). Also just armor patterns in general, this is still a semi new series, as well as still pretty unknown to most of the world, so there will not be any patterns for their costumes just out there to get. You have to make them yourself or find someone that can for you.
