Fighting Stance by thatbloodypirate Fighting Stance by thatbloodypirate
Over the weekend :iconartangel85: and I did a photoshoot with a couple of photographer friends of ours. It was extremely hot and windy out, but we had a blast, and I love how the pictures turned out.

The location is an old rock quarry turned fossil and prairie center in Iowa. I've lived there for most of my life and never knew this place existed until recently. I'm dying to go back there again and do some proper exploring and fossil hunting without having to worry about damaging a costume.

Saber costume made and worn by me

The armor? It's made of Komatex, a plastic you can shape by dunking it into boiling water.

I bought it locally so I could avoid shipping costs.

A most remarkable armor work, are those plastic sheets folded with heat ?

Thank you! Yep, I was able to shape the plastic by heating it up in boiling water.

Interesting technique, perhaps I should implement it too.
