thank you so much oml. I was thinking about making armor for certain cosplays that I might want to do, this really helps a lot

Haha, just did the first part for a full body cast - stuffed it with newspapers and works as a simple doll. Thanks for the tutorial, could be cool for making something sturdier in the future.

Hi, pretty good work.
If you don't mind I have a question. How did you wear it? The T-shirt was kept below?
Is there any picture where you use it?
Thanks

This is handy! Thanks. I actually teach drama. It's difficult to find armor sometimes for Roman soldiers. I like the design you put into the armor as well.
You are very gifted! Keep it up!

How durable is this? I know covering with worbla or resin will make it stronger, but in its own, would it crack/fall apart easily?

So... I wonder how do you wear that? o_o I mean, how do you attach it? >< Or is it supposed to be worn with a second part for the back?

I attached this with velcro. I glued one part inside of the armor, and sewed the other part on the cloth. :)

Ohhh, I see =D That's pretty clever! Thanks for your reply!

Great idea :) Do you use it as a armor or just for show? I'd like to go larping, but it would my first time so I don't want to do something expensive and time consuming, but I don't want it to fall apart in the first battle either... I'd like to try this, but I wonder if it would last the whole weekend
