Wood Armor Tutorial - ToV by Anti-Roxas-99 Wood Armor Tutorial - ToV by Anti-Roxas-99
Don't say anything about the scar >_>. Got it while working -,-

SO, I have been busy to hell and props have been coming out of my a$$, so while making this I thought I would make a tutorial for it. This weapon is Yuri's secondary weapon in Tales Of Vesperia. It's main basis is off of his Defender glove, and I used colors from another one for it. The designs on the armor are mine, so since my main idea was off of Defender, I'm calling it Defender EX.

So I still have a lot of work left to do, trying to get everything ready for Anime North 09. I have brought together a whole group of people all cosplaying Tales Of Vesperia for it, and I'll be going as Anti Roxas for Saturday of the con. Make sure to keep an eye out for us!

I'm the prop maker of the group and the main leader, so far we have Yuri *moi*, Estelle, Rita, Karol, Raven, Judith, Flynn, Zagi, Duke, and Nan ( we are making a Repede plushie, I already made his freaking dagger >_> ). What makes our group different, is that the main weapons of the party are the Fell Arms, which I'm ALSO having to make -,- xD

The tutorial pretty much says it all, so thats how you make wood armor. Not for everyone I know, but I still love it >D. Keep an eye out for the rest of the Fell Arms, soon I will post up Zagi's daggers >D.

Check out my gallery if you would like to see the fell arms and props I made so far. Take care now n_n

Wow...Another beautiful piece ^^

Hmm...*contemplates making some*
wait, a couple questions (if you don't mind):
1 about how thick should the wood be starting out? It looks like to get all the details it would have to be around...Maybe half an inch? 3/4?
and 2 where'd you get the glove+velcro? >> Just curious.

And (as if it needed saying), GREAT JOB, DUDE!! xD

The wrist warmer I used an old one I had, don't remember where I got it >_>. The velcro you can easily get at wal-mart or canadian tire.

Never use half an inch, way way WAY to thin, go for either 3/4's or an inch. Thanks for the compliment n_n
