Last minute request here, but let us see if we get anything.
My son’s school is doing a week of dress up prior to Halloween. We forgot on Monday and he missed Pajama day. Today is school colors. Tomorrow is “recycled clothing day” where he is supposed to wear cardboard, bags and other recycled material.
And hey… I have a laser cutter (one that cannot raster, but still something).
So, I want to make up for missing Monday by sending him in something amazing tomorrow. He is 6 years old, so will be highly active. And we live near Canada, so it is cold. I plan to make something cardboard, and try to get it articulated well enough to be worn even at recess. I will likely have him wear normal clothing underneath still for temperature (and when it finally breaks).
Anyone know of helpful hints or walkthroughs for making a full shirt and pants with cardboard? A quick search on google got me nothing, but I searched for clothing specifically. I know many cosplayers build full suits with primarily cardboard, so those should work (minus a fair degree of frills).
