Guild Wars 2 Orrian Armor

Orrian Armor 1

Cosplayer Enayla has created several costumes from Guild Wars 2, and her Orrian Armor build is absolutely stunning. The design and construction is interesting, but I’m especially impressed by how she added so many details to the armor with the Worbla base. The basics of the costume:

I constructed all of the armor from Worbla, craft foam, and Friendly Plastic, with detailing in puff paint and painted with normal acrylics. This is my third Guild Wars cosplay – it’s always exciting to bring characters from one of my favorite games to life!

Each segment of the Worbla – and there are many of them – is precise and intricate. For example, the gauntlet portion of the armor is comprised of individual claws that took over two hours to make per finger.

The painting process was also time consuming but clearly worth it. All the patterns added with puff paint make a huge difference, but they wouldn’t be as noticeable without carefully applied highlights and shadows. Enayla explained a little about her painting process:

I started out with my main armor color, added a subtle highlight color, and shaded around all of the edges. I then added the lightest color on the edges and raised details, and finished off with a shift color to saturate and change the color with the light for a metallic effect (the first photo is in strong sunlight).
