It’s been a while, because life intervened, but I’m back with some cosplay/armour pieces made entirely from…… cardboard. Cereal boxes to be precise.
The bracer (on the left) has playing cards added as an outer layer, both to make it more interesting and to give it greater strength. It also features wire clasps that I fashioned myself.
Both pieces are wearable, and the bracer is fully functional as a sword-fighting bracer.
