Helpful hint....When making pauldron armor or any armor where you have seams. Use Kwik Seal to fill in the gaps. I use Harbor Freight foam and the back side has a lot of texture. This makes it hard to get a good seal unless you sand it off. I just use a small bead along the edge to make it look like it's all one piece. #costume#cosplay#cosplays#cosplayer#pauldron
