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.
