So far I'm working on the armor. I've patterned the gauntlet, wrist guard, pimp plate and finger armor out of paper. I need to refine the finger armor and cut it out of foam to test fit.
The sticking place for me on the armor is sintra or black worbla. I've never worked with sintra before and the tutorials range from "oh this is pretty easy" to "level 10000 magecraft".
Just draping and playing with the coat for now. I feel like it's a decent shape. I'm going to have the front flap lift up and the front of the base unzip for easy on/off. Or, I'll have it unzip at the side of where the front flap meets the under layer and just have it look like two layers but be one, if that makes sense.
