Hi Guys,

 

I'm staring to make some changes on my revan cosplay to fits on 501st. I would like some advices what kind of materials i can build the chest armor. One question I have if I can make the by a rigid plastic like pvc and cover it with a leather like material to make the correct armor patterns and colors,  can I do it?

 

thanks

If you can make the leather rigid and not look like leather (the game file and screenshot references very clearly show a metallic effect that porous leather fights against), then there shouldn't be an issue.

I've just give up that leather idea, I've found a ink like a cooper, that matches with revans armor. I'm building the armor right. Soon I will post some pics here.

By the way do you recomend any specific clamps to use attach the hood to the armor?

Thanks

I have rings that I use for mine. I believe they are smooth key rings that conceal the split part but allow me to detach the hood while still having accurate looking rings.
