This Brynhild Costume Is Fierce

Brynhild costume

The Nintendo game Dynamic Slash featured Norse mythology and Brynhild/Brunhilde was one of the Gods who showed up in the game. She has distinctive armor, and it’s just the sort of outfit cosplayers drool over re-creating. Shappi made the costume for the 2013 European Cosplay Gathering, and she looks absolutely amazing. She said it was a nightmare to work all the details into the armor, but the finished product is worth it. She used foam, Worbla, Wonderflex, resin, and more.

She even made all the jewelry for the armor by hand:

Process of making jewelry for neck, sword and belt.
1) I created clay + metal ornaments negative for each of the pieces.
2) Made the molds for each piece with silicone
3) Cast this madness army of little rainbow pieces!

To be honest i have never ever made more complex resin casting work, this is crazy how much time it took to prepare each piece with this tiny details.
