So I'm starting to work on this cosplay and I really could use some suggestions on the materials and ways of going about it. This is mostly an armor cosplay. I already started working on the weapon but any help would be appreciated.
The cosplay is Cyan Pile from the series Accel World. Oh, also if anyone has any suggestions on what can be used for the skin suit that is underneath his armor that would be amazing! Haven't done much cosplaying and this is one of my first full armor ones so any assistance, even basic suggestions, would be really helpful.
Here is a full body picture of Cyan Pile with his weapon:
Here is what he looks like from the front:
Here is what his weapon looks like:
Here is what his weapon looks like extended:
I already have an idea of how to extend the weapon but if anyone has any ideas I would be more then happy to hear it.
Any help at all would be appreciated!
