hey,

So I don't have a lot of money, so can anyone tell me how to make the Bio/armor and the dreads? I know that I can do it with foam and cardboard or plaster strips, the problem with foam and cardboard is I don't like the look of them and plaster strips are a lot of money...



thanks

The cheapest option for dreads is foam backer rod that you can get at almost any Home Depot store. Then just taper the ends to a bit of a point and you're set. They tend to curl up naturally, but once you get dread rings on them, they hang normally and look great! The come in a few sizes and black/grey color.

These are an example of backer rod:

Nothing wrong with foamie armour, My AVP leg pieces look great and cost next to nothing to make. Shoulder bells were a bit of a learning curve so may make them again but by time I got on to the leg and butt flap I think they look the real deal.
