Hello again fellow cosplayers, i wanted to show the process i did on the back torso section of the armor in these pics:

I decided i needed to add more of a outward curve to the shoulder portion of the back to give it more of the look i wanted for the suit so here i have sewed and glued in addition foam over the center back and extending to the sides of where my shoulder blades would be.

This is a back shot after i covered it with fosshape and glued it into place using fabric tac. Looks massive huh?

Side view to show how far out the back goes now, as you can see i am attaching it directly to the shoulder harness to increase the over all strength, which will be great for the pauldrons as they will be sitting over the shoulder area.

Full view of the back spine bent in the right shape attached now (Wonderflex is amazing stuff), i may add a wee bit of more detail to this or just wait till i airbrush it and do detail painting then.

3/4 views of the spine and new back.


  1. Thank you for sharing your progress here! I really appreciate it as someone who is just getting into armor building. (But have been costuming/cosplaying & sewing for over 10 years) I still have a long way to go... but really, your tips and tricks are eye opening and will help me a lot in the long run!
