Wanting to experiment with Terraflex, a new thermoplastic put out by Tandy Leather, I decided that my Wizard build would be the perfect opportunity. All of the armor is made of this material, with foam as a base and patterns of my own drafting. The armor is finished with a filling primer, spray metallic paint and acrylics. The armor is attached with snaps and straps.
The Wizard class is known for their superior attitudes and flair so I wanted to express that through fabric choice and details. I selected rather rich fabrics such as silk taffeta, organza, faux leather and even several brocades with Christianity symbols to reference the religious themes in Diablo. I added gold trims, beading, and appliquéd brocade to the waist cincher. To help keep the leggings up, they were sewn into a pair of dance tights.
The accessories on this costume were the most enjoyable things to create. For the scrolls I used a cardboard tube filled with expanding foam, then covered in parchment print paper. I added fabric, trims, and gems for extra details on the scrolls. The spell book is a book box I bought. I then sewed a cover for it out of leather and attached it with rubber cement. The artwork I was referencing didn’t display an amulet, but my in game character did. So I fashioned myself an amulet out of Terraflex, a custom gem, citrine, crystals and glass beads.
The orb was created with an acrylic ornament and then hand painted.
