So, brand new to the board and the whole costuming thing.
Currently planning 2x Mandalorians (one custom, one Boba for the wife) to be started in a few months (I'm away from home for work at the moment), currently looking at/for materials, armor, props, et cetera.
And leading into my question:
For my custom, I'm thinking of full-coverage leg armor, as opposed to the frontal coverage that seems to be most popular. Also looking for a codpiece that'll cover front and back... might look into Stormtrooper parts or something of the like for my lower.
And for the actual question..
Sintra, which seems to be the most popular/affordable material in use. How much punishment can it be expected to take? Say I were wearing full leg and butt armor, would sitting on it be likely to damage it (I'm not a heavy guy at around 150, but I'm still the weight of, well, a dude)?
If sintra isn't workable for that manner of use, is there anyone around that makes more durable (metal of some sort, assumedly) armor bits? Haven't seen any on the boards, and eBay seems pretty useless unless I want to go medieval.
