Dwarven Armor Plates.
I sculpted these in Monster Clay, made a Rebound 25 mold, and cast them in Smooth Cast 300. I then used P3 primer (black) and painted them with Rub n Buff silver. To attach them to the undershirt I used Fabri-Fix, which is a flexible fabric glue. It really worked well!
Layers of the costume:
The underlayer of the costume is made of a loose knit cotton. The scalemail is a mix of costume cast plastic armor and faux suede. The undervest is made from blue upholstery and the outer vest is faux leather and faux fur.
