Brienne of Tarth is one of the most admirable characters on Game of Thrones, and if I could cosplay as anyone from the series, it would be her or Daenerys. Galacticat opted to go with Brienne for a costume she made to wear to Dragon Con, and she did an impressive job. She made everything from by hand and had to pour tons of hours into the build. All those rivets on the Gambeson skirt? She added them by hand and stitched all of the squares. She made Brienne’s armor from Worbla, and it was apparently her first making armor. It doesn’t show.
She used contact cement to secure all the details to the Worbla, but it doesn’t sound like all the lines and patterns were the trickiest part. The challenging aspect seems like shaping the armor with a heat gun. She had to clean up the pauldrons because they got bubbly from reheating. It all worked out though, and you can see several work in progress photos over at Facebook.
