An Intimidating Dark Souls 3 Abyss Watcher Cosplay

Talented cosplayer Silver Ice Dragon Cosplay (read our interview with her) recently shared a detailed look at her Dark Souls 3 Abyss Watcher costume. The project included working with multiple materials and textures — leather, a prop weapon, metallic looking armor, and chainmail. She sculpted, sewed, and crafted each aspect of the costume.

She shared details on how she made the prop sword:

The core is a yardstick attached to a pvc pipe. Then I cut and beveled EVA foam to go over top of that for the blade. Covered the entire thing in thibra (similar to worbla) for extra strength, then bondoed and sanded the ever living crap out of it to get a very smooth surface. The details are sculpted on with apoxie sculpt.
