There are numerous possibilities and materials for cosplay armor construction. We, the Knitting Knights, have dedicated ourselves to working with metal and would like to show the people in our MagicCon workshop This is Heavy Metal, Baby how they can get from concept to the final armor.
During the workshop we will explain which metals are suitable, where they can be obtained and how to process them. We also provide tips on tools and safety regulations that make work easier and guarantee fun at the convention. We will explain step by step how the concept turns into a pattern and how it is applied to the metal plates and finally to the body. We also deal with different fastenings and their advantages and disadvantages. Ultimately, under the motto This is Heavy Metal, Baby, a comprehensive expedition into the realm of metal construction awaits you, spiced with entertaining anecdotes from the Knitting Knights’ own experience.
