8th November 2012: Breastplate Progress begins with the breastpiece. First versions were newspaper to get the general shape. After a few false starts I've got a corrugated card shape that has been bent and shaped.
I think I need to cut a v-shaped vent/dart from the centre to get the front curve right, but the overall shape is pretty much there.
Next step: testing with jury-rigged straps, and then looking at craft foam.

Thanks! Originally this was planned for October 2012, but everytime I start work on it, friends invite me to do costume groups for the next cosplay event XD
I'll probably start again when the weather improves and I can work in the garden.
