I know the golden rule here is never buy from eBay but this is made out of PVC sentra. I have seen alot of guys using this material in their builds.
This is my very first attempt at costuming (real costuming that is. Han Solo is way to easy to do.)
The only reason I am even considering buying this is due to my lack of knowledge of Sentra and I'm a little short on fabrication tools at the moment.
The description reads "These plates have been hand-crafted, and are cut and molded such that they will fit most people between 5 foot 4 and 6 foot 3. These plates would make an excellent starting point for an affordable Fett costume!
The leg pieces have been been molded to have the proper shape, and the shin plates are a single piece, not two pieces glued together!
The plates are crafted from 1/8th of an inch thick PVC Sentra, and are both lightweight and sturdy.
