Black propylene and Blue propylene.saber aTrace the shape on the 5mm thick EVA sheet and cut it off. Separate the collar piece. saber b

Glue the 4 triangles together, add an extra triangle piece to the joint near the stomach.saber cWhen the glue drys out, turn it over and get it plumped. saber d

Blow it all over both sides with a heat gun.
Place it onto a big ball and press with hands, this will make the arc more natural.

Warm the lower chest part a little, and lift the edge up with fingers as pictured.saber gGlue the front chest piece and back piece together.saber h

Based on the previous paper pattern, draw the figures needed.

Trace the figure shape onto the 3mm thick EVA sheet, make the pieces at two sides symmetrical.saber iPaste the figures on to the chestplate base we made before.

Make sure the whereabouts first and then glue.saber jAfter gluing all the small pieces on, cut off the spapre part.saber k

Check out if all the pieces are carefully gluded and in good condition.

Same way to make the backside piece: draw pattern, trace it on the EVA sheet and cut. saber l

Past the quadrilateral pieces onto the back armor base. saber m

Similarly, heat the lower edge and unwrap it up. saber nGlue it onto the back armor, as you can see from the picture bellow, there will be

a gap at the chest side. Then we will take care of the collar and similar steps like

what we talked above. You need to bevell outwardly when cuting the EVA figure.

After gluing the small figure onto the collar base, heat the backface and arch it.

On the chestplate below the collar, add a rivet at each side. In care the rivets may fall off,

apply some glue as well. Only some details left to be handled.

To make the chain like design between each pieces, we need to draw it first precisely

and then get rid of it. saber p

saber qCreat the chain piece out of 3mm thick EVA sheet, it should be 1.7cm longer than

the small notch we made before. For your reference, the piece length we cut off is 2-2.5cm.

You will see from the photo below, glue the chain piece on.saber r

And we are almost done with the general armor shape. What’s left is coloring!
