I was wondering if you have any tips on building Mercy's armor/chest plate from the game Overwatch but without using worbla because in every tutorial I've seen that's all they use. Thanks a bunch!

Hi @mccreevee,

Most armor builders I know use foam when they don’t want to use a thermoplastic like worbla. Looking at Mercy’s design i feel  the most difficult part will be her chest plate. I recommend two tutorials that will be very useful. First Evil Ted’s video:

Second, Biowepons Female Captain Shepherd tutorial: https://bioweapons.wordpress.com/2010/06/21/mass-effect-n7-armor-build/

If you haven’t worked with foam before I recommend checking out  AmenoKitarou foam and worbla mega tutorial: http://scissorwizardcosplay.deviantart.com/art/Foam-and-Worbla-armour-MEGA-TUTORIAL-467770119
