William Yu,

I was trying to contact you through your feedback but it doesn't appear to be working. Is there another address where you can be reached?

...I've just been deathly sick and haven't had the energy to respond. I'll try to respond sometime this weekend as right now, I'm trying to catch up on all the work I missed.

Shield: Too easy. This was just a matter of cutting a large piece of cardboard into the 'pear' shape. I attached 2 velco straps to the back and voila.

Sword: I cut 3 copies of a sword pattern + 2 extra for the hilt and bound them together with paper mache. You can throw some speckling paste to get a smooth surface. Some paint, an old rag to around the handle and that's it.

Multi-piece armor: To goal here is to reproduce the shape and form of the single-piece armor with smaller pieces connected together. So here is what you do -- start with my diagram of the basic 1-piece armor -- then draw lines whether you think it looks good. Use those lines as cut patterns (but remember to add an inch or two for the margin) and connect them back together. (Glue works.)

Wings: I was about to try to explain my wing design again but after rewriting the 1st sentence for the 10th time, I decided I still can't explain how I did it. Perhaps I'll diagram how the discrete parts are put together.
