Zoras live in the rivers and seas, and in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, the Zora guards wear helmets. Cosplayer Lara Wegenaer Arts took that idea and ran with it for her Zora costume. She made a replica of the helmet from Worbla. It looks like she used scraps to create all the details. She drew them on with a marker first and then laid the Worbla over it. Then, for the most impressive part of the costume: she painted the Worbla to make it look like metal that has been underwater for ages. The final patina is lovely.
Lara used acrylic paints to achieve the weathered look (you can view a photo below). One of her pictures shows green, gray, and white — the white acrylic is CreaPaste, which looks to have a different texture than the other paints.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
