Pokémon Cubone Hunter Cosplay Can Catch Them All

I’m all about unique Pokémon inspired costumes, and cosplayer THWWIP got imaginative with his Cubone Valor Hunter ensemble. The design includes pieces made from EVA foam, Worbla, and lots of painting. EVA foam served as the base for the mask and armor and covered with with red Worbla. The material’s known for being smooth, but THWWIP still did some working priming the material. For the mask (pictured below), he explains he used wood filler:

that’s just some wood filler to help soften the transitions between the horns and the bone parts on the side. Wood filler is flipping awesome for getting rid of seams and such for Worbla. In general I use Auto Spray primer since it’s self leveling , I’m only gonna cost this guy once though because I want to keep some of the Worbla texture to help sell that old bone look.

Usually I do a skim coat of wood filler and then a combo of a few layers of spray shellac and auto primer with sanding between to get super smooth Worbla.
