Llane Wrynn has ruled Azeroth and appears in the upcoming Warcraft film. Angelus of The Neo Tokyo Project made a replica of his bold and detailed armor, and as you can see in the above photos, she did a wonderful job of re-creating it. As with a lot of armor I see while searching for costumes, it’s hard to believe it’s made from foam — the jewels, the metallic pieces, all of it.
The photo just below shows how the shield took form from different layers and colors of foam. Angelus patterned all the detailed carvings, cut them out of sheets of foam, and then adhered those swirling designs onto the shield. She used sharp nosed scissors to cut out the foam — her work is incredibly clean. The layers were finished with metallic spray paints and airbrushed liquid acrylics after the glue was primed with latex glue and wood glue. Whew.
