Need advice for current Cosplay project

Hello everyone,

I'm currently working on a Zed-Cosplay from League of Legends and got to a point where I could use some advice from the more experienced.

I took the oldschool path of pepakura -> Epoxyresin -> Fiberglas mats -> car body filler -> sanding -> fine putty -> sanding
and I'm done with most of these steps. Now I'm at the point where I would need to cut the chest pieace open in order to fit some padding and buckles/straps into it. Sofar it is one solid piece where I would never be able to get myself in xD

Now my question is: Where would be the best place or what would be the best technique to cut it open, what straps/buckles to attach to it and how to make it look like it still was one solid piece. Basicalle where to put the mechanic so that it is best possibly hidden.

Best regards

I'm having a hard time figuring that out with the pictures you've uploaded. Can you get me a better head-on and side-on view of the chest?

Hey Sean,

I figured that those pics might not be the best reference.
I'm next week back at the place where I have the pieces stored at the moment. I'll get you thos pictures then!

Best regards

Hello Community,

took me a little longer to get back to my project, but here are the pictures of the torso piece.
If it gets you a better idea you can find the Pepakura file I used here: MEGA

Still would be very thankful for your advice.

Best regards

I see. Hmm.

To cut it apart, what I would do right at the moment is: not. Some of the bondo work still needs to be smoothed out, and it's best to do that all while it's still one piece.

THEN what *I* would do, just a suggestion, is slice it somewhere about here on the red lines, and have buckles/ magnets/ attachment points where I've drawn at least two of the blue squares:

But like I say, make sure you're bondo is finished and you're ready for paint; that way your finished product is much more smooth.

Hope that helps.

EDIT: sweet ride.
