Dota (Defense of the Ancients) 2 has several playable heroes, and it looks like Traxex the Drow Ranger is one of the more formidable options. She has a unique look and cosplayer Bindi Smalls absolutely nailed it. She looks like she walked out of the video game. She crafted the entire costume and used foam for the bow and sintra for the armor. Sintra is a lightweight PVC that sounds really handy. She used this process for the armor:
All of my armor was made of expanded high density rigid PVC sheet (aka Sintra). I make paper templates, trace them on to the sheet, then cut them out. Next, I use heat to form them. Each layer is super-glued to the next.
As for the boots:
The boots are craft foam covers over cheap, store bought boots. The were sealed with glue, then painted. I chose foam over Sintra for this, so that they would flex when I walk.
