Ideas for Leg/shin armour

Any of you guys made leg/shin armour from scratch? At the moment I`m experimenting with Fun foam covered BMX shin armour and it looks , well, not good. Ive been headscratching and wasting materials now for a fortnight. I fancy trying something else but could do with a couple of new ideas.

Any hints?

Right on, Hobbes! YOU DA MA...umm, uhhhhh...MASTER!!!

I used an entire set of hockey pads as the base for my suit & it worked out GREAT! For the shin pads, I "macguyvered" them a bit by removing the upper knee pad section & replaced it w/ a cooler looking pair of construction/carpenter's knee pads. This helped in seriously eliminating a lot of the unneccesary & bulky features of the hockey shin pads. They worked quite well, very comfortable & also looked great!

the shin pad thing seems like the answer its just not coming off for me. I`ll persevere though. I`m going to try a new approach. Minimal i think, seeing as my last attemps were kinda `bulky`.
