I have recently purchased my FOTK armor kit and as delivery day approaches, my excitement builds! I've been wanting to get a suit of armor for a year and a half now and finally bit the bullet and decided to live a little. I'm introducing myself here so I'm not a complete stranger when my build thread starts (though I've posted before) and so I can give a little information about myself.
Since I'm female and 5'3", I know I may run into a few unique challenges regarding how well I can get my armor to fit against myself and I already have a few ideas for how to fix it, such as height increasing insoles and shoulder pads, but if there are any other women on here with some advice as I move forward I would greatly appreciate it.
I'm also a full-time college student so I know this build will take longer than normal due to my limited time and resources, but I'm not in any sort of rush and I want to enjoy the process. I'm sure I'll run into a few bumps and mishaps down the road, but who doesn't? I'm open to any criticism about my assembly once I get the thread started.
I can't wait to begin trooping with you guys, you're childhood heroes of mine!
