Voltron: Legendary Defender Shiro Costume

shiro costume 1

Arkady Cosplay started watching Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender and really liked Shiro’s look. A skilled pilot and leader of the Paladins of Voltron, Shiro is formidable. He has a Galra prosthetic hand, and Arkady tested the possibility of creating the look of the cyborg attachment with body paint. As you can see in the above photo, she successfully made the arm appear like metal and managed to make the Galra hand glow purple. The test made her realize she probably couldn’t use the body paint option for an entire day in costume and that it’s better suited for a photo shoot.

She’s working on building Shiro’s complete set of armor. You can see her sketches of the Paladin armor with notes below. She’s planning to cut it all from a single sheet of 2mm craft foam. The entire build should cost less than $35.
