Is that armour made out of craft foam? It looks so good!
And silly posing is always excellent fun! Can't wait to see the shiny gold-ness!!

It's Plastazote- it cuts WAYYYYY better than craft foam. Craft foam is evil.

I have like.. 20 1.5x1m sheets of the stuff in a giant box in my kitchen. There's going to be a lot of armour....

(and Tak- so glad to see someone knows the theme tune!)

LMAO excellent, what website do you get your plastazote from?

I got it from a artifact preservation website. It was good because the sheets were slightly larger than the stuff flints.co.uk do and a bit cheaper, but shipping was like.. 8 weeks, so I don't recommend them.

So yeah, go to flints.

Main torso done including skirt armour. Spent several minutes wearing it and striking action poses to the opening music. I feel like a god.
