    I guess the real question is, do you have the physique for that costume?

    PS. it doesnt have to have horns, but that would be nice...i was thinking about getting some cheapo halloween masks with horns and just cutting them out, or perhaps a liquid latex slush? who knows...but i want this to be light so mostly plastic...even though metal would be cool lol! this doesnt have to look EXACTLY like the pic, its just a referance...this costume is for upcoming halloween, comicon (plano tx), and for LARPs.

    also, i can make chainmail, so dont bother linking me to a chain making site for the shoulders.

    I would say Sintra, some places call it PVC board, you can sometimes get it from local sign companies.
