I'm thinking of making a cosplay of The Sweeper from Zetman
I'm debating materials and methods of creation.
For his breastplate I was first thinking metal, but that'd be hard to shape or assemble and also possibly quite expensive. Allthough it would give the weight and feel I want for his chestplate. I've heard of other materials such as wonderflex, but I would think that's too lightweight and fragile. Something easy shaped, with some weight to it. Recommendations appreciated.
As for the textiles, I have little to no experience with fabrics, what would be a fitting fabric to use as cape and as robe? Thinking strong durability and thickness for the robe and something more fancy for the cape. Also his hood is meant to be dark, and I was thinking about that fine meshed fabric that's black but also seethrough, but can't remember what it's called.
But yeah, I guess these are my ideas so far.
Tips and new ideas much appreciated! Thanks!
