Putting in work on my Yurio genderbend again 😥
Last year I finished it about 50% of what my concept was so I'm hoping to finish it up fully for Akimatsuri next month!! .
Here's a few #WIP detail shots of the worbla corset ❄ still lots to do! ⛸❄⛸❄⛸❄⛸❄⛸
As I mentioned in my post before and in my story, I'm working on a mask which means FINALLY MORE COSPLAY CONTENT! 😁
This is actually my first time ever working with Worbla and it's a fun challenge 😊
I've started this now because I know I'll get stressed anyways until christmas - and this is supposed to be a present.
Please bear with my rookie work 💚
In the next slides you'll find a closer shot of the basic mask so far, a closer shot of the sketch I'm doing (it's not symmetrical because I suck at drawing) and the inspiration for the mask: Bloodmoon Shen!
I'm trying to use all the shapes of this mask and add some more details in the paint job later 😊
Cropping is a little weird because... Yeah... It's Instagram 😒 tried to fix it with a reupload but that didn't do the thing.
No progress today since I'm working on a christmas present, but my order from @cast4art just arrived! They gave me a sheet from the new #worblaspearlyart to try out, thanks a lot guys!! ❤ In the back you can see the other materials I use for my armour builds, #profoam and #worblasblackart , but I still prefer the regular Worbla :)
Einen ausführlichen Bericht findet ihr auf meiner Facebookseite . :) Wie ihr vielleicht schon gesehen habt, habe ich mir letztens die Zeit genommen um einige Worbla Arten von @cast4art zu testen.
Ich finde alle Sorten haben ihre Vor- und Nachteile, hier nur kurz die Zusammenfassung.
Für stabile Rüstungsteile und Unterbauten bevorzuge ich Finest Art und bei Sachen die öfter gedehnt werden, Meshed Art.
Für die aufgesetzten Details und filigrane Arbeiten werde ich in Zukunft mit Pearly Art arbeiten, weil es für mich das verbesserte Black Art ist aber auch Black Art bietet euch da viele Möglichkeiten wenn ihr damit richtig arbeiten könnt.
Mein Tipp für absolute Neueinsteiger – holt euch ein Testset (Das gibt es z.B. bei @myCostumes.de) mit allen gängigen Sorten und macht, ähnlich wie ich, ein oder zwei gleiche Sachen aus allen Materialien, vielleicht einen Armreif damit ihr sehen könnt, wie strapazierfähig das Material ist und darauf eine filigrane Form mit dem Selben Material. Dann habt ihr den direkten Vergleich und werdet merken womit ihr persönlich am besten arbeiten könnt und welche Sorte Worbla sich am besten für welchen Anwendungsbereich eignet.
This Saturday is my Panel at @animenyc ! Learn how to make armor like my license plate bracers in my atomic Wonder Woman cosplay! I will actually be wearing Titania from fire emblem which was made for the panel. Thanks to @julibeans for making this and @jasonlaboyphotography for the original pic.
(Hey guys, one more Halloween post!) 👻 For my Maggie Burroughs costume, I needed a Freddy Krueger glove... fast. SO I managed to put one together in a couple of hours using leftover materials at home 🙌 Here's the breakdown:
My dad had an old work glove, so I gathered that and some #worbla scraps to get started. I made quick patterns based off of reference images, and traced them onto scrap sheets of Worbla's Black Art (this thermoplastic has a finer surface compared to other worbla products, and it saved me the trouble of priming and sanding!) Using a heat gun, I shaped the worbla to fit the glove, and attached some pieces together. I also balled up tinier scraps to make little rivet details. I attached the larger/heavier sections of worbla to the glove using scrap Velcro (probably could've swapped this out for hotglue, but I wanted to dismantle the whole thing once the day was over 😓). Once everything was secure I added color using some cheap acrylic paints (I ended up also using red paint to add lines to the paper 3D glasses). Rub N Buff was used on the blades to give them a metallic finish, a snazzy little string was added to the underside of the base plate and VOILA... one budget Nightmare on Elm Street prop!
I'll be hosting a Worbla Panel at @animenyc ! Learn how to template, costruct, paint and attach your armor! Will contain a 10 min Q&A at the end of the panel for all unanswered questions. See you there!!
My first Blizzcon was such an amazing experience! We had to Uber in full suits of armor because our hotel was so far away. Lmao, Blizzard fans make such an awesome community, everybody was so positive and kind. I loved seeing other incredibly talented cosplayers, Muse, and getting to experience the opening ceremony live with other people equally hyped for the newest announcements. Thank you so much to the people of Corsair for bringing us along. It was such a pleasure to help out their booth! And another big thank you to the photographers whose work I hope to show over the next month. Hopefully I'll be back next year! (I really need to invest in a wig) #blizzcon#diablocosplay#diablo3#demonhuntercosplay#demonhunter#blizzardentertainment#blizzardcosplay#cosplaygirl#diablo#cosplay#worblasblackart
Did you attend Blizzcon?! If not did you watched anything from it?
It was moving weekend for me so I have no clue what when down at Blizzcon. I’m totally going to look up some highlights later though!
