Zenyatta helps out in battles in Overwatch. He uses orbs of harmony to help teammates, and cosplayer Shellshocked made those orbs from Worbla. He layered Worbla segments over a clear acrylic ball. He smoothed out the design with wood filler and filler primer. Creating the ring of orbs was tricky. He said:
Easily the hardest part of the build – hollow cast 9 orbs using Smooth ons 65d. Frame made from clear acrylic rods slotted into styrene tubes reinforced with scrap Worbla. Once connected internally Worbla caps were used to cover the access hole.
You can see a couple of making of pictures below — including a look at the EVA foam armor.
