Cosplayer Kamui is hard at work on her next costume: a wizard from Diablo III. She made the costume’s breastplate from Worbla and used acrylic paint to transform the dull beige of Worbla into the proper colors. The process took about 4.5 hours, and she condensed it into a seven minute how-to. It’s worth watching to see how to use multiple layers and shades to add depth.
