Back to work! I think I may have gotten the con crud though. sigh. We will know for sure in the morning, 'cause that's how my body works... So Una's shoulders are super cool but also look a little terrifying lol. This build is getting crazy big and I can't believe I have all the base armor done! Going to be hopping on over to @raptorprops to do some laser cutting. I'm really terrified, but also excited at the same time. Spent so long making this one piece and now I have to cut them up! D=
Fellow cosplayers, advice please! The leg armor pieces are supposed to look 'layered'. I also wanted them to have 'some' flexibility, so I just glued strips of craft foam on the inside. Not 'fragile', but not completely durable either. These are craft foam+worbla. Anyone else had success layering pieces like this? @evilted_channel ? TIA! #cosplay#cosplayhelp#worbla#cosplayarmor
Old paint VS new paint
Talk about an upgrade!
Old paint was Kryolan, and while it's a nice paint, it just wasn't right. New paint is Rustoleum, and WOW! SHAZZAMO! Super bright and shiny, plus the color is perfect. 👍👍 for Rustoleum! .
Can you tell what it is yet? ;) Make your guesses in the comments below and I'll let you know if you're right or wrong. If any of you get it (that don't already know :P) I'll be very impressed. :D
I have to prime and paint the hilt and blade separately before I put them together. In the meantime, I can start sculpting and casting the various gems for the Daybreaker, Scimitar of the Seven and the headdress ╰(*´︶`*)╯♡
The armor parts for Aloy are painted! If you want the digital patterns of the armor parts that I made, then be sure to sign up for Patreon in september! I will be sending out the digital blueprints as part of this month's Patreon rewards :) Just go to www.patreon.com/pretzlcosplay to check out the different tiers! The support on Patreon means a lot to me and really helps me out :D 😙
I made these armorpieces with craftfoam and Worbla and primed them with PVA primer. Then I sprayed a black acrylic paint on them and then I painted them white with oilpaint. I love how the oilpaint gives them a 'bone' like colour.
Craftfoam and PVA primer is from @cosplayclues
Black Worbla is from @cast4art
You can get Worbla in the Netherlands at Cosplayclues too!
