Uruk-Hai Armor for Your Inner Orc

uruk-hai armor 1

The Uruk-hai are the worst of the worst of orcs as far as I’m concerned. In the Lord of the Rings films, we see Saruman create his own army of Uruk-hai in The Two Towers. They’re stronger than regular orcs and are more resistant to sunlight. They’re hulking and gruesome and the kind of bad guys you remember long after you’ve read the Lord of the Rings book or seen the films.

Rather than wearing matching uniforms, the Uruk-hai are outfitted with whatever armor and weapons are on hand. Unless you want to cosplay as a specific orc, that means you can improvise and design your own set of armor. Yelaina May gathered several reference images for the Uruk-hai build she made for someone else and created a custom look. The armor started as craft foam and was traced onto Worbla. It was primed and painted to look like weathered (and bloodied) metallic armor. The armor pieces will eventually be attached to a rustic-looking costume made from leather and fur.
