The senior project was open to just about anything you want as long as you learn something from it, so I thought making costume props would be cool. Gilgamesh was the most challenging of the three I made, so it was pretty much the meat of the project.
Unfortunately I don't have a visual tutorial on how to make it... >.<. Material wise I used cardboard, tin foil, masking tape, and aluminum sheeting. The greaves are probably the hardest part because of the cutting of the sheeting, but otherwise it's a rather simple (yet time consuming) prop to make.
