Flemeth is a shapeshifter in Dragon Age, and she has quite the set of striking armor. It features a cape, leg and arm pieces made from metal, and a studded leather top. Cosplayer Beth, also known as Megabethbob, recently re-created the look from scratch. The above image shows the mostly completed costume; she only has the wig left on her to-do list. She made all the armor from Worbla and added all those studs by hand.
She says weathering is her favorite part of the process, so it’s no surprise the Worbla looks so much like metal. The below pictures show the armor before painting, then before weathering, and then completed. Her process for sealing and smoothing the Worbla:
I swear by priming with PVA glue! So for this my process was 5 coats of pva glue – grey spray primer – car spray paint (nissan blade silver to be precise. It’s the best) – a coat of clear wood varnish – weathering with acrylic paint.
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
