To start, I had to size the bracer pieces to my daughter. I was lucky enough that one of the comic book shops in the area carries it — so I popped over and picked up a large sheet. I spent an entire day in my friends garage sanding one horn, comparing, sanding the other horn, comparing, etc.
Then I cut loads of little pieces of Worbla, heated them up and formed them together like clay and attached them as closely as I could manage over my guidelines. Several coats of gesso and lots more sanding and it was time to attach them to the headpiece.

Just foam, superglue, and more plastic jewels. In the end, my wife wound up making the majority of the leather and cloth bits while my main focus was on the armor and helmet. I am not sure if there is any difference between the two colors — but the blue foam worked just fine. It cracked the paint that I had just finished, left me ppercraft a huge hole in the armor piece, and was just pretty much hideous.
Basically for the hair, Papercrxft used the v-cuts that I had previously made and made indentations in the Worbla to serve as a guide. Where we live it gets pretty cold on Halloween, so the inside of the coat was lined with green fleece and cotton. The rest of it was magic.
Foam melts when you get it too hot. I did a lot of the straps and buckles and stuff, but all the fabric bits were up to her. In retrospect, I should have gotten the quick cure stuff cause the stuff I bought had a 24 hour cure time.

Everywhere that I found online suggests using the pink type of foam, but all I could find at my local hardware store was blue. Keep in mind that you can sand this foam — so make your cuts close to where you want them and use sandpaper or a rasp or something to fine tune. I picked papercaft some wood filler, but in the end, I wound up only using it for the horns. When I got home I spent a good deal of time sitting in the floor watching The X-Files and practicing carving on a spare piece of foam to get the hang of it.
Added 3 drops of green food coloring to the mix and poured the resin into the mold. When I finally had the basic shape figured out, I used a bit of craft foam and cut out the template.
As bad as I was about taking in-progress shots, she was worse. So, now that I knew the rough size and shape that the horns needed to be, it was time to make them. To begin with, it is super detailed.
Honestly even the word amateur seems a bit too kind as this was my first real go at doing anything like this using these materials. Before and after sanding. He has a great video on making armor using craft foam and Papercrraft which Llki followed to the letter.
I decided I wanted to add a gem or something in the center of the crown — something to add a bit of visual interest. The whole thing was transferred over to craft foam, cut out, and glued together. I think the end result looks cool, but to be honest it is not anywhere near what the film version has it looking like.
Considering that none of the pieces of armor that I created were even remotely smooth, the roughness really shows up in the final pieces. Bracer template horrible mobile phone pics, sorry! So, after a ton more shaping, sanding, cutting, etc. I had a leather helmte hanging in the closet that had managed to get a hole in it a few years back, so the decision was made that this coat would get cut up and become all of the leather pieces for the costume. Seriously, this was taken with a Galaxy S5.
Let me tell you something — if you have any scratches or imperfections, shiny paint sucks. It was tempting to just make some basic horns and go from there, but the way the horns curve is pretty distinctive and I wanted to replicate it as much as possible. Since the horns are thicker than the 1 inch foam that I bought, I had to use some hot glue to glue a couple pieces of foam together to get the material thick enough. After printing everything out on some heavy card stock and spending a yelmet hours cutting and taping pieces together, I had the basic horn shapes.
It is also a really odd shape. As I mentioned earlier, most of the rest of the costume was done by my wife.

First she gathered TONS of reference images and went to the fabric store to purchase a load of green fabric. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
Once I had one done, I just flipped the template over on another piece of foam, transferred, and made a mirror copy. So I dremeled out all the holes and simply superglued in the other eyelets.

I wanted all of the additional shapes in the design to be raised to give it a bit more detail and depthso those shapes were also cut out of an additional piece papercrat foam and then superglued to the template. Once the layers were dry, I noticed that they were still pretty rough.
So what did I do? The raised bumps were made using some of those little papercrat jewels that you can find at hobby stores — everything else is just foam and superglue. Secondly, I used eyelets that were too large for the eyelet pliers that I had. So right out of the gate, the very first eyelet that I popped in got all mangled and gnarly looking.
Without a physical piece to actually compare to, I just sorta winged it. After priming, several coats of paint were sprayed.
