Padding Out Roomy Armor


Ok I have the XDFX Supra chest. I love it,
but the shoulders are too big. I checked the archives, but couldn't find anything on how to make them fit better. Any advice or help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance :huh

Pad them from the back with 1/2" or 3/4" foam. It's sold at craft stores, I have used it many times. Just cut a pac-man from it, bevel the edges (slant them down), glue the pac-man mouth shut and it'll curve like your shoulder. Then glue it in to the shoulders after test-fitting, with good super glue like Loctite. TRUST ME it's a miracle for having big beastly shoulders :) I did it in my luda 89 suit in my avatar pic, and oyu couldn't tell I wasn't the freakin' UFC star I looked like :P

Dont cut the armour, build up with foam the same as the shoulders.

And work out a little.

Yeah it'll NEVER look right if you cut it up. You can pad the chest, back, shoulders, abs and thighs, everything you want! It'll look better and keep hot latex off ya in the sun. I never liked the look of a skinny bat, no matter how cool the suit is :) That's why they padded keaton up!
