To be precise, its for a friend of mine. They would like to cosplay King Knight from the game Shovel Knight at some point, maybe AB 2020. They need help doing the armor portion.

I'm not very experienced in making cosplay, much less one of this magnitude. Can anyone offer any advice, such as what sort of material to use, how to put it together? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Easiest to work with and most cost effect would be to make the armor out of EVA foam. Check out EvilTed's YouTube channel for lots of info on how to work with it :)

I found a really great tutorial on making armor out of EVA foam a few years ago when I needed a way to make a tiara for my Sailor Jupiter cosplay.

It's a really nice step-by-step tutorial and includes how to make patterns and put everything together.
