Thanks. I'm going to have to disagree though, I thought it was pretty spot on when using the in game skin as the model but yes, seeing as it is armor and not made of metal it isn't the most accurate I suppose. I am no blacksmith though either xD
In fact the only convincing "armor" style cosplays I have seen are a Guyver costume that had to have taken a ridiculous amount of time and money and a Samus cosplay. Of course, that's assuming they are counted under a "armor" type of style.
I think fiber glass can be used to pull off a armor look very well, which I believe is what was used in the two I mentioned...............but it's not cheap nor easy if I recall correctly.
