Lin Bei Fong by Onyx-chan Lin Bei Fong by Onyx-chan
Friend took a quick picture of my Lin Bei Fong Cosplay at fanime.

I decided to try my hand with Sintra for my first attempt at making full armor in any form. The stuff was really fun to work with and it felt great to wander in stuff I could take a punch in literally.

Still got stuff to finish by comic con(pouch, workable reels) . But for the most part it was a good test run before the final full version :). If anyone captured me in this at fanime let me know, this is literally the only picture I have ATM.

I'm looking to make this costume for a friend and in exploring methods Sintra seems to be one of the best options. But I'm worried about the flexibility of the suit. I'm curious, is the armor still pretty flexible? Can you bend and sit while wearing it? Or does is restrict movement?

Sadly sintra is hard armor. The pieces are rigid with only a tiny bit of flex. Due to this her outfit has to be made in parts and siting can be a challenge. If you are looking for a completely flexible armor I'd suggest using a foamie-based method. I can move since I built joints into the armor, but to sit comfortably I generally take off the skirt or breastplate.

How did you make all of the armor out of sintra? It looks awesome :) I'm supposed to cosplay Lin too in a few months and I'm really worried I won't be able to get it done.

It took a lot of planning, patterning and trial and error. Luckily, I've been making costumes for a bit now so basic drafting comes pretty quickly to me :). This version is only at about 80% the other picture in my gallery shows it at 95, with a re-done breastplate and skirt(re-doing boots for dragoncon). I wish you luck with your Lin! You'll get it done, just go slow and have patience. Sintra isn't the only method I've seen her made out of, there have also been some beautiful versions made with craft foam.

This cosplay is awesome! This armor really looks sturdy, just like Lin's metal armor. You're one of the only Avatar cosplayers who makes sturdy looking armor, most people have armor that looks soft and flimsy.

Oh man, you did an amazing job on this. I have no idea how hard it is to work in that material, but job well done.
I love Lin a lot, so I feel like you really did her character justice :)

How long did this take you to make?

Oh yay! You were the other Lin cosplayer. I'm happy I found you, your armor looked amazing!

My armor fell apart, as expected, but that's what happens when you do things 3 weeks before a con.

I was just wondering how exactly you made your armor?

Hi, its good to hear from a fellow Lin cosplayer. I totally understand the frustration making this stuff I was dealing with time constraints as well.

All I can recommend is using Google. I found the majority of the information I was looking for through tutorials on you-tube and Google search. Also armor archive is a good place to start if U need assistance figuring out patterns.
I wish you luck, and can't wait to see more from you.

Okay, thank you. I guess I'll just have to spend some more time researching, I feel like cosplay is 70% research.

By the way, your cosplays are really well done and impressive! Keep up the good work!
