In game, the Embodiment of the Marauder armor in Diablo III seems time consuming to track down. In real life, it also takes a long time to build it. Cosplayer Chrissy Smiff of C&C Cosplay Factory, also known as CheeBang Bang, spent hours creating a replica of the armor. She did a wonderful job capturing the deep blues and reds of the costume and making each piece of armor look like durable metal instead of Worbla or plastic styrene.
Chrissy used a variety of skills to craft each piece of the armor from the leg armor to the shoulder pauldrons. She said:
I use a ton of different techniques to make stuff! I usually base my decisions on how thin, heavy, or flexible a piece is needs to be in its final form. I made Cherche entirely out of craft foam and polystyrene, but the curves of the Demon Hunter armor made worbla a better choice. I used polystyrene where I could since it is so cheap and lightweight (and as a result incredibly easy to attach with velcro). There is a zipper on the back of each lower leg piece which let’s me slip it on and off.
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 @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
