Monster Hunter Blademaster Barioth Armor

blademaster barioth armor

In Capcom’s Monster Hunter, one of the best kinds of armor available is the Barioth set. Instructables user MandaBear created an impressive reproduction of the Barioth armor for a female blademaster. She put together an incredibly thorough tutorial on the processes she used to make everything from the helm to the boots. She combined a lot of techniques and supplies including EVA foam, Wonderflex, Apoxie sculpt, and acrylic paint. She sewed together several different types of fabric ranging from cotton spandex to deerskin. She started the process by examining a ton of screen shots from the game and internet.

The base of the helmet is a Pepakura pattern from a character in Halo:

After getting a [really] rough base, I started layering Paperclay to add up some bulk and flesh out the dimensions. After the Paperclay, I threw on some poly resin, Apoxie Sculpt, and spot putty. Sanded that until it was ready for paint.

I started working on scaling for the fangs and deciding how to fit all this crap on the wig and wear all, as comfortably as possible.

The fangs were sketched out by hand on paper and copied to make the right and left mirrored images. I sculpted them in Super Sculpey. I made very crappy, flimsy, poorly thought out molds of the teeth in latex. Had I know then what I know now, I’d have done these as box molds. Derp.

I took one Punky in 613A, harvested most of the wefts off, and hand stitched them back into another Punky in 613A.

To fit the armored part of the helm to the wig, I removed the wefts from the crown.

After I stitched the extra wefts into the back of the wig, I added arches of fabric covered boning every so many inches horizontally, like a Bumpit, teased, and hairsprayed for as much volume as I could manage.
