Dark Souls’ Siegmeyer of Catarina has armor that looks a little like an onion. It’s distinctive, and Redditor Durp0012 captured the vegetable look when he replicated the costume. He pulled the armor and prop together for the costume, which I haven’t seen done before, in about a month. He spent less than 50 hours crafting everything. As far as materials, he used EVA foam, caulking, hot glue, googly eyes, and spray paint on the armor. You can see the googly eyes in a photo below — they’re under the paint as rivets. And for the hammer, he says:
The handle is a pvc pole painted and grips are eva. The actual hammer has a thin wood skeleton inside to keep it all together and the majority of the outside is just foamboard and thick paper around the cylinder bit. Fairly light for its size.
