Almost two months ago I showcased a beautiful in-progress warrior take on The Little Mermaid, and Lanthea Cosplay is still hard at work on adding tons of details to the ensemble. She’s used Worbla for more intricate work than I’ve ever seen anyone else use it for before. She’s especially used her scraps to good effect. As you can see in the above picture, all the hard work is worth it because look how stunning the results are!
Her latest addition to the costume is a modified trident, or as she likes to call it, a stabby stick. She started by fitting Worbla over a base and pulled from her bag of scraps to add all the trim. She placed some beautiful teal gems and then primed the weapon and added three coats of Liquitex Basics in gold. She added shading and then teal inserts. You can see the evolution in the below series of photos.
She’s also posted a video showing how she adds detail to Worbla:
