Hey everyone! I'm a new member, and fairly new to costume and prop making as well. I understand there are probably a bunch of threads already informing others on what to do, or how they can improve their craft, but I am asking for some personal advice. I started this project late last year, brand new to pepakura and excited, I failed creating armor that suited my tastes and looked as structurally real to the games as possible twice. But this most recent attempt proved successful, I was able to harden my pepakura, and actually come out with something I enjoyed looking at. The only problem is, I have no idea where I should go now. I intend to create a full suit of armor with the purpose of display and functional wear/use. I've used up all the youtube videos and tutorials I could find and I feel like I need some personal help. Now that I've explained my background, sorry if that was a long read, I'll explain my situation as quick as I can. Below are some pictures of my torso piece, hardened with fiberglass and fiberglass resin. Currently haven"t done anything outside of the hardening process. I believe I need to cut the piece into two pieces, and then rondo/bondo then eventually sand? What expert advice would you recommend I do? What tool should I use in order to cut through the piece with so It doesn't get all messed up? I was thinking about connecting them together with either a hinge or straps and buckles kind of like a seat~belt deal, but I'm hesitant to work on it more because I really want it to work out. Any and all advice would be appreciated, I apologize for the long explanation, I'm excited to talk with y'all and wanted to provide any and all details.
