Tips on making armor ? please help ! WoW cosplay
http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3f3ywTI6o1rv59xho1_500.jpg (reference pic)

I'm wanting to cosplay Lady Sylvanas Windrunner from World of Warcraft

I've made a few cosplays but I've never made a cosplay that has armor so I don't have a clue where to start.

Any tips for crafting armor for cosplays? What materials/crafts should I be using etc ?

Thanks ^^

EVA foam is very good for armour, I use it a lot myself! It's very easy to work with, you can heat it and bend it to the shape you want and assemble it with hot glue. You can then seal it with PVA and paint it.

I'd also recommend a material called Worbla, it's a thermoplastic and is also very good for armour, though if this is your first time making armour and you're not too confident i'd say use EVA foam (:
