Lightning Knight of Etro Cosplay WIP by Fantalusy Lightning Knight of Etro Cosplay WIP by Fantalusy

Material: Worbla + craft foam

I didn't paint the left gauntlet at the first place as I've been trying to figure out a way of combining the shield with the armor, so they are one complete piece and the shield won't turn into weird position. Question:
 whether I should attach the spike on the left arm or not? It might cause difficulty while equipping the shield..after all it's all about he shield. 

Last week I made my decision, attach the spike and paint everything. Actually they worked quite well! :) Will get it done by the end of this week then I'm finally a knight of Etro!

PS: I DID NOT make the sword, I bought this on eBay: www.ebay.com/itm/Lightning-Ret…

I don't want to sound like a loser but it's so much cheaper to buy and honestly they do much better job than me XD. I was the first buyer and look, they already sold 2 more in 3 weeks after me! Glad I'm not being lazy lol :)

Thank you so much!! especially from you because you do amazing craftsmanship ^^
the spray paint is called 'Bright Chrome' and shouldn't be very expensive (about 5 USD in my country), sells in hardware store.
Glad I can help ^^

How did you paint this! I have been looking for a paint tutorial to figure out how to make things look like metal and this nocks them out of the park! How do you do that? it would be so helpful to know

Thank you for asking :) please take a look here Almost there! Knight of Etro armor by Fantalusy

In short, Auto paint or zinc paint.

Don't know if my method fits you because I use Worbla as base, but I found craft foam is too soft that it absorbs the paint and lose the gloss.

Glad I can help! :)
