So, for my final project for my costume tech class, I have decided to construct Jango Fett's armor vest. The vest will be made out of pleather and the plate material is still up in the air. Which raises the issue:
I have been debating about whether or not to use thermo-plastics as the material from the armor plating is formed. I have heard mixed reviews about the stuff from sources around campus and I was wanting some further input. I have a very tight budget, so if anyone can think of any other material that is a) affordable
I would be most grateful.
