Destiny Guardian Cosplay

destiny guardian cosplay 1

Laura, also known as Nebulaluben, is a prolific cosplayer and has made costumes from several video games — Mass Effect, Borderlands 2, Mortal Kombat, and Destiny. She worked with Activision and Bungie to create a Guardian costume from the game, and the timing was such that she had to get the costume done before she could even play. She posted her process for making the armor and mentions that she used Punished Props’ Foamsmith book to help her. She said:

To make this armor, I used 1cm thickness craft foam as a base for the first time. I was afraid it would look clunky on me as I’m a skinny girl, but I think everything came out nicely. I used this foam because this thickness gives the armor consistency and the pieces keep their shape after heating them way better. Also, for the first time, I used a heat knife and, OMG, I don’t know how I’ve lived all my life without it. It has a cutting head and several other engraving ones and its finishes are really, really clean. I’ve also discovered the advantages of sanding craft foam and how it improves the overall look dramatically.
