World of Warcraft Tarecgosa Original Design Cosplay

World of Warcraft not only has tons of characters to cosplay; the game has tons more objects to inspire costumes. Cosplayer Ashley O’Neill, also known as Oshley Cosplay, came up with an original design for a Tarecgosa costume. She did an excellent job bringing the armor and horns to life in a way fit for a human. She used Worbla for armor pieces and cardboard and expanding foam for the horns. She used the following methods to smooth the horns:

1) I tried layering gesso on the masking tape underneath and sanding every couple of coats, but I still wasn’t getting the smooth results that I wanted. After like 5 coats, there wasn’t a noticeable change in appearance so I wanted to try a different tactic.

2) This time I tried layering on some featherweight spackling that I found at the local hardware store. I used this stuff to fill in big holes in the underneath expanding foam too, and I really liked how it applied and dried quickly. I just stuck my finger in the container and glob/smoothed the spackling over top my gesso, covering the entire tip with the pink.

3) After the majority of the tip’s surface was covered, I smoothed the spackling with water on my finger just to make it smoother for sanding in the next step. Let to dry over night (or 24 hours by the time I got back to it).
