Leina – Queen’s Blade

Project Description

All the armor is made worbla backed in craft foam. I used fillable primer before painting all the armor.  I intentionally left the texture of the worbla to give the armor some dimension and texture.  I do want to go back and weather it as it looks a little flat with just the silver paint.   I used metallic spandex under the armor to give the illusion of full armor in some places. The pieces stay on with Velcro or are glued in place. The chest plate stays on with the two straps and a clear strap around my neck.  The straps are all leather and took quite a bit of staring at art work to figure out! The top part is a harness that sits on my shoulders and then misc. straps sit on that.  They are all detailed with brass rivets.  The wig was from EpicCosplay Wigs.  I added extensions to the front to do her braids. I then chopped off what I didn’t need and sealed the end with clear caulking. A clear rubber band keeps the ribs in place. The bangs were then cut and the back sprayed and lightly spiked.

The sword and shield are made by IceMan Props
