Sauron Costume Tutorial part 3: Body Armor, gloves, chain mail

Sauron Costume Part 3An old knitted blanket, some craft foam, and duct tape will get you chain mail, armor, and movable gloves to finish your Sauron costume.

This tutorial is the 3rd and final part of the Sauron costume how-to. If you missed the previous parts you can watch the mace tutorial here and the helmet tutorial here. The chain mail in this costume didn’t work out quite as well as I’d hoped. The fabric sucked up the spray paint making it appear grey instead of silver, but since it’s mostly covered by foam armor, it doesn’t show that much. If you wanted the chain mail to look more metallic, try spraying the knitted blanket with some spray enamel before painting it silver.
