Guild Wars Cosplay: Otakon 2011

So, I debuted my Silver Eagle Armor from GWs at Otakon 2011.

Super uncomfortable but still awesome looking. Saw a Gwen and an Eve. ^^

I wish I had better photos =/But my searching online for Otakon 2011 cosplays hasn’t been forthcoming on my own costume.

I found both my friends ><

Aging/Distressing Armor

17 Jun

So, I’ve weathered my armor!!! It took me a while to figure out how to finish and paint the craft foam. First, I tried Peniwiper’s method with Future Floor Wax and Rub N’ Buff. When that started to crack, I was recommended to try ‘Scrim’ which is a combination of water, sobo glue, and fabric glue. This worked fine but I still wasn’t completely satisfied. Then a wonderful person recommended Plasti-Dip which is this fantastic thing that you spray and out comes magic plastic!!! Magic plastic!!! It not only seals the foam but acts as a primer coat as well. Wonderfully epic stuff.

Anyways, I first painted the pieces with silver (one coat with Lumiere Metallic Paint in Pearl and one coat in Liquitex Basic Silver) and then painted it with black. Before the black dried I then wiped it off with a damp tissue. 120 tissues later all of my armor had been aged!! Depending on how “aged” you want the armor depends on how long you let the black sit on the piece before wiping it off.

Guild Wars Silver Eagle Armor

So, this first post is going to be all about my first costume, the Silver Eagle Armor from Guild Wars. I never seem to pick an easy thing to start with and this time is no exception.

 

I started this back in May and I’m hoping to have it completed by July for Otakon ’11. Stay tuned next time for pictures of pieces!!!
