    THE ULTIMATE QUESTION

    OK maybe not, but it is a crutial question that I must ask before starting my costume.

    Im doing a Jaster Mereel costume by the way

    Im making it out of metal but im not sure weather to use sheet metal or aluminum?

    Im leaning towards sheet metal because I saw a guy with one of the best costumes ive ever seen and he made it out of sheet metal

    but aluminum wont rust

    Don't know much about the metals but a bit of real rust would look pretty cool/realistic.

    use aluminium its more maluable....u can use 3mm aluminium..it gives a chunkier look....3 times thicker for the same weight as steel....i'm busy with a set ....its all cut out & has compound curves......it just need dressing...then hey presto.......i will post some pics ...very soon..........
