I was hoping somebody could help me out as I'm having a bit of a problem. I'm about to get started on crafting my halloween costume for this year and I wanted to be Astrid from How to Train Your Dragon because let's face it...she's a hardcore chick. So anyway the problem I'm running into is how to make these crazy awesome shoulder pads that she wears:
I considered just taking the shoulder pads out of an old hockey uniform and using sculpy to make it appear more like armor, but then I realized that if I tried to attach the pads to the shirt with those little skull buttons that she wears- the pads would be way too heavy and would stretch out the neck of the shirt tremendously and would be almost unwearable. That's really the only idea I could come up with and it kind of fails. Does anybody have any other ideas on how I could do this? The pads don't have to look EXACTLY like the picture because that would be really hard to achieve, but I want them to at least look pretty similar.
Thanks for reading!
