Saber armour help?
So I'm making myself a Saber (Fate series) cosplay for Ayacon. Unfortunately I can't provide a reference from here, but there's one in my planned costumes section if it helps. I've never made armour before, so naturally this is going to be quite a challenge for me. My question is however, what materials should I use to make it? I'm trying to decide between craft foam (if I can find large enough sheets), or some sort of thermoplastic, be it wonder flex or worbla (which I have a little experience with). Can anybody give any advice on what I should choose and maybe some tips on moulding the breastplate too? Thanks.
