Narga, a.k.a. Natasha, of Narga and Aoki Cosplay, took on an impressive build inspired by Warhammer 40K. She crafted a replica of the Eldar Howling Banshee’s look from Dawn of War III, and the result is fierce — the armor sort of has a Predator-esque design. She made her first-ever costume creation video to document the build. It took a month to create the outfit and she used “EVA foam, Bubblestar (thermoplastic analogue of Worbla), styrofoam, acrylic colors, RustOleum spray primer, kanekalon for wig, acrylic silicone for gloves.” You can watch the costume come together in the above video; be sure to stay until the end to see the finished ensemble — it’s stunning.
