Blood Elf Priest Costume And a Leather Armor Tutorial


If you want to see some truly impressive costumes, go to BlizzCon. Blizzard Entertainment’s convention promotes their major franchises, and cosplayers bring their A-games. Many of the outfits in World of Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo are elaborate – such as this Blood Elf Priest. Cosplayer OrangeMoose built the ensemble, and it’s show-stopping. She wrote a helpful tutorial on making the leather armor, and this step details cutting the pattern pieces:

I used the scratch awl to trace around my foam shapes on the leather. I cut them out and used the edge beveler to clean up the edges (front and back). After that I used a wool dauber and daubed a liberal amount of the gum tragacanth on all edges. I then used the edge slicker to rub/buff the edges of the leather. What this does is seal the edges to keep them from fraying and it also gives the leather a nice shiny rounded edge.

Here’s a look at the tools used:
