Lylyth is a figure in the miniatures game Warmachine, and cosplayer AllieCat liked the character’s design so much she translated it into a costume. It’s a complex outfit, but AllieCat took on the build even though it would only be her second time making a costume and her first time using Worbla. The armor is intricate, and she put a lot of work into getting everything right from the outfit to the makeup. The character has a skin tone know as Frostbite, and she decided to match it as closely as possible:
In the world of Warmachine/Iron Kingdoms Legion has their own skin tone called Frostbite thats a pale grey blue. It’s gonna be fun having to blend all these colours to get the perfect match. Tyrande’s application process took about 2 hours without having to blend so I’m gunna guess it’ll take about 4 this time.
Instead of using water to apply the makeup I’m going to be using Ben Nye’s LiquiSet in a spray bottle and then finish it off with Blue Marble Sealer for optimal smudge proof protection. All of this can be found at Studio FX.
She used D rings in the armor and EVA foam mats for the pieces of the bow. She covered boots she found on eBay with Worbla pieces of armor and curved them to fit around her leg.
