Alistair Armor: Day 1

Progress report. I've finished the paper patterns for the armor pieces of Alistair's armor.
Arm Bracer
Elbow Piece

Chest and back (may need some altering. Should be wider at top.)

Everything else: Boot, knee, thigh, shoulder

For this pattern it's important to measure out the "strips" that make up the armor pieces as well as the shape. For this style of armor both elements are important. All pieces will have a "base" which takes the shape of the piece. All pieces will also have what look like strips.
There are a few ways I could approach this. The method I decided on was to make a thin base in the shape of the armor piece and then cut the strips and lay them over the base. Each strip will be covered in vinyl pleather.
