You don’t have to possess a ton of experience to become a knight — not when you’re a cosplayer. Abysswalker Cosplay made his Artorias the Abysswalker costume inspired by the Dark Souls characters in just a month. He worked on the ensemble in free time outside of his full time job. He didn’t get super precise for this costume and explains he winged it with templates and measurements. You can see some of the progress below.
And in case you’re wondering how he turned the foam into convincing armor, he says:
EVA foam for the entire body, helm is made of fiberglass and bondo, the sword is a piece of poplar from home depot i used a base coat of plasti-dip to seal most of it then a chrome duplicolor spray paint then all the detail is a mix of black/gunmetal mettalic acrylic paint and thank you!
