Cosplay help


#1

So as I’ve said before in another thread, I’m hoping to make a Knight Artorias cosplay this year. Only I have no idea where to begin. I’ve got a pretty good idea for the sword (http://m.imgur.com/a/JPatJ), but I’ve got no clue on how to start with the armor (and the shield of I’m going to do that). I might be able to do the cloth parts with my mother’s help (she’s all about sewing and knitting and stuff), but the true ‘armor’ parts? No idea.

So I’m asking any cosplayers here, any advice? Maybe other sites/formums? Or personal experience?

I hear thermal plastic is good to use for armour.

Here’s some pictures of it

And here’s a site you can order it, and some (very) basic info about how to shape it
