Creepy Leshen Costume from The Witcher 3

witcher 3 leshen costume 1

Leshens appear in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and they have a look that makes them prime nightmare material. They remind me of creatures from in Pan’s Labyrinth. Spooky looking as they are, the design of the forest creature is also beautiful. Angelique Heikens, also known as idromy, captured both the lovely and scary sides of the Leshen with her costume. She crafted the entire ensemble using techniques like sculpting, molding, and hand-painting leather, and she installed stilts. She recycled stilts she made for a minotaur costume a few years ago. She stripped and rebuilt them, and they add another ten inches of height to the costume. With the horns and stilts, she stands over seven feet tall in the ensemble.

She used the following materials for the claws:

made with:
armor plate for the claws ( white,also called sintra)
worbla to make them fit all my fingers snugly
and eva foam ( thick density thus sturdy but light in weight)
