Just a small update..Since I was in the middle of the paperclay armor anyway I decided to just finish it for backup (and just in case I love the metal one too much, I may sell it, which means I need to finish it). Well here's what It looks like now:
But thanks to GunKatCosplay for saying to use the parachute clips because low and behold, I was wrong again, And they worked like a freakin charm!! So props and a cookie to you!! That's whats holing the armor on..I also put foam on the inside of the armor, which, before gluing, I put the belting for the clips through by cutting a slit in the foam and adhering it to the foam. It looks pretty odd but you can;t see it anyway..But It works so I'm not complaining..
I am still making the metal one though so we will see how that goes..
Oh, and I have LOTS of movement with it too. I can lift my arm ALL the way up straight in the air without ruining the way it connects.
