Armor Pattern Tutorial

Hey guys, do you also want to start with a nice and super protective armor costume and have no where to begin? Well, then try at first to create some armor patters for your helmets, bracers, breastplate and anything else. Here I've made a little step by step tutorial how to get a perfect fitting pattern for a bracer. For more information check out my armor making book. But as you can see, it's really simple and you can work with basic tools from your house hold!

This actually isn't very different from what I used for my Winter Soldier arm. Except with my arm I used bubble wrap and foam boards.

This is a cool technique! I used it for my bracers, it worked really well.
Only thing no one told me was that you have to wrap it very losely. I wrapped it to hard and there was almost no space for the scissors for cutting. They made some nice red marks on my arm xD But after one day nothing could be seen anymore.
