This is Reginald's Fantasy armour, with some updates. The shoulders are all sixteen gauge, and are supposed to look blocky and tough. It was hard to come up with ways to allow it to actually move with a person inside of it. Took AJ about 4 tries to get it right, and she was nearly yanking her hair out with the frustration. I am pleased to know a person who fought through the difficulties. But now it looks like the picture!
I think the posts look really tough!
And below, you can see where she modified the cod piece to allow Reginald to be able to walk...a swivel hinge.
