Suggestions for construction

I am trying to do a new cosplay with my brother and we are interested in cosplaying as characters from IGPX. However, we have never attempted any sort of armor. We're looking for suggestions for construction.

Thank you for any help you can offer.

There are many methods, but it depends on a few factors which will determine which route should you take.

1. How much are you willing to spend?
2. How patient are you?
3. Can you generate a computer 3D model?

These three questions will determine which route of armor crafting you should take.
When in doubt, just take the next small step.
With that next step take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
When the mind is calm you realize the best is still yet to come.

I make all of my armor using expanded PVC foam (Komatex, Sintra, this kind of plastic goes by many names). Using a heat gun, some simple cutting tools and some super glue you can get some really great armor done. The armor you linked would easily be within the realm of reason with this stuff!

I have a lot of several articles on my blog about armors that I have made step by step so hopefully you'll find some use for them!!!
