Love the Druid costumes! The work you put into them really shows! Did you make the ears or purchase them from a vendor/site? If so, who; because I'm looking to do a costume of my mage fairly soon and need long ears.
I'll have to scour ebay for a pair. Unfortunately I'm not very well versed in German but with the new expansion coming out I'm almost considering dressing as a Troll Druid. Oh and I wanted to ask what you used for your body paint too! The colour looks really even.
I use Kryolan Supracolor. I is also not a perfect paint but it is much more better than my last water based make up.But I also like this nutaral look of it. ^^ I wish you good luck and success with your T5. I can't wait to see the progress pictures! I think this barken look of the set will be really hard to get it. ^^
I think the bark will be the most difficult part as well but I think for that I may cut strips of leather and paint each one with bark lines. The shoulders are going to be my favorite part and I'll be using a molding technique I was thought in college for those. I'll send you my Cosplay .com page when I have something up! Thanks again for the advise and help!
Yeah, the bark is the reason why I still don't try this costume. Now I think that I will learned enough to manage it, but I'm working on a another set. Maybe next year I will use this model, too. ^^ He he, I think I would make the bark like I Journey's End made: I carved a lot of lines in the papermachee and intensified this look with a acrylic paint. ^^
At first I use crepe tape to cover breaks and holes. Then I also cover it with news paper strips for a solid base. And for the last layer I use paper machee. I buy this stuff in powder form in little plastic bags. I mix it with some water and get a nice, pastry like mass, which I use for covering and modeling. When this stuff is completely dry it becomes really hard and solid and you can carve, file and polish ist very easy. ^^ So if you have this as a final layer you can model a great barken look with a dremel! ^^
