It depends how confident you are feeling and what sort of skills you have.

Ace is definitely going to be easiest, you could do him from scratch or by modifying clothing. The other three are a lot more complicated. That's not to say you shouldn't try any of them as a first cosplay, but be prepared to put the planning and research into what materials and skills you need to construct them.

Then, of course, if you get stuck with anything, come and ask for advise on the cosplay help forums! Good luck.

i agree ace is probably the best to start with because it's best to start off by making something simple

however it does depend when you plan to wear it due to temp etc dont wanna boil or freeze because of how many layers you have on

Wearing Armour
I'd like to know the best ways of putting armour together (once the bits and pieces are made or being made that is).
With Rose's costume over this weekend just gone, it was all "tied" together with laces and was a bit too cumbersome even though people think it looked good.

I'm always going to be keen to make the stuff tough so it'll not fall apart when people knock into me, and having read one of the tutorials (which was rather confusing in the way it was described) I'm a tad confused about making the templates from paper/card and putting foam on top. What they were using was "Urathene Form" I think it was called.

PLEASE take note, as a jobseeker my budget is a low one, so right now Wonderflex is out of the question. Even if I thought of Plastazote I'd need a lot of it which would also be costly.
