Incredible General Zod Costume


Cosplayer Eric Browning decided to tackle his first armor build ever this year, and he decided to become General Zod from Man of Steel. It was an ambitious choice, but as you can see from the above picture at Salt Lake Comic Con, he did a great job. He started the project in January of this year and began by taking measurements from a DC Direct statue of Zod with digital calipers. He used the measurements and French curve templates to lay out all the pieces of the chest plate. He started with paper patterns before using Worbla for the finished product.

The costume requires about 300 “slats” used for straps, and he sculpted the first one out of air dry clay. He did the same with segments of the side and cod straps and used “Amazing Casting” products to cast them.
