How to make armor by Maguma by DynamiteBreakdown How to make armor by Maguma by DynamiteBreakdown
ENJOY! FIRST TUTORIAL EVER.

Quick edit's note. either use some sort of crayon or strong marking pencil on the camping mat, if that doesn't work use a sharpie. Sharpie will work well but the mat Absorbs like crazy so when you handle it you WILL get your hands a bit dirty. will remod tutorial for updated version later when kinks in neck are gone XD

I would probably skip the vinyl, but would this type of armor hold up to, say, getting whacked with pool noodles with fiberglass cores?

if you are looking to use it for SCA or other LARPing events, multiple levels of padding will do you just fine.

Thank you!  I was planning to use chipboard at this point, with some paper mache, but I could definitely use this for thicker pieces!  Does armor made of this foam get too hot?  I'd be wearing it in the summer sometimes.

it gets sweaty but I've never felt like I've gotten too hot because of it. My only warning and concern is just to stay hydrated because you will sweat in any armor that's covering a majority of your body or limbs.

Would you say that this would be appropriate for the great Siegmeyer of Catarina?
more broadly knight armor in general?

Do you think this method would work for a Dark Eldar armor?
