Armor… conundrum?

I really need to keep telling myself that this armor is just supposed to be costume quality!
It’s just a costume…
It’s just a costume…
It’s just a costume…!
I made up more plates for the breastplate this morning, and then I taped everything together to see how it’s working. And hm… it looks rather flat. I’m starting to realize that I need to put in a bend or an overlap or SOMETHING to make the turn (around my *ahem* mid area), but I can’t bring myself to do it. I feel like it would just ruin the effect. However, if I don’t do it, I run the risk of not being able to wear the armor at all unless I (miraculously??) develop a pair of A cups overnight ^.^*
(Yes, I just typed that on a public blog forum for the world to see… Now do you see how desperate I’m getting?)
So in conclusion… breastplates are difficult to make… as evidenced by Ari’s armor breastplate… which is so pointy that I was called Madonna at the ren faire… twice…
