Tumblr user Dark Lord of the Fluff is working on Dragon Priest costume from Skyrim and doing some great work making armor from cardboard. The undead enemies have a memorable appearance – and not in a good way because they’re a little scary. This interpretation of the costume is in the process of being upgraded, but it looks solid so far. Here’s what he’s got done:
The armor is cardboard with reptile-print vinyl and hot glue. The robes were treated with a micro-torch to add the holes and rough texture. I recently painted a new set of monster hand gloves (they started out bright green) and made a new circlet to go with the new mask (which I purchased after the papercraft one I made last year disintegrated due to moisture). Next I plan to add some aging and corrosion to the armor and mask, and start work on airbrushing a bodysuit to have more of a corpse-like appearance.
