When cosplayers come up with gender swapped versions of characters, it’s always interesting to see what they do to make them different. Ely Renae came up with a stunning take on Ganondorf, the villain from Legend of Zelda. She used Worbla to craft the armor and shaped it directly onto her body with a heat gun. She added trim and painted the piece completely in black before using wood glue to give the armor a shiny looking surface. She even used Worbla to make the headdress.
One especially aspect of her costume is the body paint. It looks natural. She explained the application on Reddit:
I used a hybrid airbrush paint called Proaiir. It was a custom color mix. It rubbed off a little bit in high-contact areas (around the breastplate, hands) after a few hours, but it never went on streaky and it smells like apple pie, haha! I highly recommend it.
