    Fem Scout trooper

    So I have been scouring the internet to find a way to make the breastplate for a femtrooper and kept running into the same problem, everything is designed for women with a normal sized bust. Which left us bustier girls out of luck. then I stumbled upon a gent that was making mass effect armour for his wife by screwing 2 round things to a board and stretching eva foam over it. (here is his blog Evil FX / BioWeapons.com | Custom Costume Builds ) but the same problem came up, where am i going to find something that is big enough and round? Well, I was making dinner one day and pulled my dollar store strainer out of the dish washer... and, well colour me pink it sure did fix mighty nice!20140328_211335_resized-jpg

    So I went to the dollar store and got 2 and removed the handles and hot glued them to a dollar store cutting board.

    I used one of those cheep wal-mat puzzle mat and a heat gun to mold it over the base I made. then just cut it out and heated the sides and bent them in place so it curved around my chest.

    Coming along nicely. Breastplate looks very well made. Will you be making the remainder of the armor yourself?

    You bet! Everything that I could find was too big or way too expensive. so far i have only spent 80$ on everything that i need to finnish.
