dearie, how are you making the armour, out of pure interest? I don't think you have a forge in your garden XDDD

(I wish I did have a forge....)
I'm getting help to make it as I have to make it lightweight and well-fitted due to wearing it alllllll day, so it'll prob be something like many many many layers of papier mache. Am looking around the interwebs to see what material is best to do it with tho.
