A little step-by-step sample of how I made some doll-size armor from paper and cardboard.
You can also use this method for human-sized cosplay. ^-^
The armor in my photos is from the game "Dragon Age 2" ... it's FemHawke's champion Mage armor, with some alterations due to the small size of my model. XD
