UK based cosplayer, gamer and digital designer.
Sadly I only get paid for one of these things.
More Barbarian progress shots!
Two weeks in, and we’ve almost finished the entire set of armour - just one shoulder and a belt front left to make.
Really pleased with how everything’s coming out, especially that breastplate. As usual, very nervous about making that piece, but Worbla is a great material to work with, and it turns out, it’s a lot easier than the EVA foam. So that’s a result.
Can’t wait to get everything painted though, that’ll really make it (and hide all the joins, pen marks etc).
We made our first piece of Worbla armour!
This is the Barbarians’ left arm, and I have to say we’re loving it as a material to work with. It takes shape really well, we’re not covered in superglue, and there’s zero wastage - any leftover scraps got heated and rolled into horns.
Went out on a fabric hunt today, and found the perfect material for Si’s Diablo 3 Monk at The Eternal Maker in Chichester! Great place, lovely staff and an Aladdins Cave. Definitely recommended for any cosplayers on the south coast of the UK.
What a weekend - Si and I won the MCM Midlands Expo cosplay masquerade with our Shepard and Ashley costumes!
Met loads of lovely people, cosplayers and photographers there, including the awesome foodandcosplay. The girl who did the hand sewn and beaded Snow White ball gown? You. Are. Incredible. And of course massive thanks to the MCM peeps backstage for looking after us, the MC and tech guys who sorted us out, and of course the judges - we’re honoured!
