World of Warcraft Battlegear of Might Cosplay

World of Warcraft’s Battlegear of Might offers bonuses in strength, stamina, fire resistance, and more. If you don’t feel like locating the eight pieces of the armor in game though, you can make your own like Janina Gabrielle J., a.k.a. neener-nina. She crafted a set of the impressive armor for PAX Australia and documented the build with photos and notes. Janina made every part of the costume from the gauntlets, to the tunic, to the shoes from scratch and also applied some spot on green makeup to go with the outfit.

It’s an interesting build to look at because of the different techniques and materials involved. Supplies included expanding foam, craft foam, Plastimake, masking tape, floral foam, and more. You can see this variety on display in the below picture of the helm. Janina notes:

I wanted to reduce the weight of the shoulders, so I’m using floral foam to carve the spikes, then reinforcing that with paper mache. The right spike is covered in Gesso and drying, the left one I just finished carving and in process of wrapping in masking tape to prime it up for the paper mache part

As for the entire helm of might, she says:

Base was initially made out with cardboard, then expanding foamed around it to give it some shape. Papermache’d around that after carving, and after drying, covered it in a thin layer of paperclay. Used plastimake to create the skull at the back as well as to hold the headband and wires in place. Details put on with craft foam then painted accordingly with a base layer of grey primer spraypaint, and normal acrylics were used for more effect. The chains are just these cheap bird toy chains from here, spray painted with grey and added a light layer of silver paint.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @
