Femme Take on Skyrim Daedric Armor

Kamui Cosplay always wanted to make a Skyrim costume but was concerned about having too much armor to fit in her suitcase. And yes, that is a valid concern when you’re traveling to conventions with your costumes. Her problem was solved when she found a “sexy” version of Daedric armor on the internet; the redesign meant she could make Daedric armor she always wanted.

The back of the costume has a complex spine and that was the most challenging and time consuming part of the build. She constructed it from 22 separate pieces that she made from Worbla with her sandwiching technique. She cut smaller and smaller patterns as she made the spine’s layers and the project allowed her to use lots of Worbla scraps.

As far as the painting, she primed the spine with five layers of wood glue and then painted everything black. The highlights and shadows were added later. Considering there are 22 pieces, I don’t want to think about how long it took to finish painting.
