Druid Tier 8 pauldron making of
Published on Dec 7, 2009

Soooooo, here are some progress pics of one of my actual projects: Druid Tier 8 from World of Warcraft.

Warcraft Cosplay

Here you see a preview of the sample for my pauldrons from the World of Warcraft modelviewer. The first steps were really easy: I took half of a styrofaom ball, cutted some pieces out and glued a bit of greyboard on it. In the last picture you see some stripes of foam. I used it to model or fill some parts on this prop.

The followings steps were very easy, too:
I cut some pvp pipes in short pieces and covered a aluminium wire with it. Hot glue helped to put and fix them togehter. After this I used a bit of expanding foam to model the form of the pauldron. You only need a knife or carpet cutter for carving it. It’s very easy to deal with it and I love the carving parts the most!
Then I stick the aluminium wires into the expanding foam, covered it with this stuff too and carved the twines I needed for my prop. In the last step I covered everyhing with crepe tape, newspaper and paper machè. These tree layers give the expanding foam a solid surface and you can paint it after a finishing polish.

I always love to work with mobile game developers as many of their games often have amazingly designed heroes. I also always wanted to build a functional bow! So when Empires&Puzzles reached out to us to create something from their game, I took the chance and decided to make Athena’s bow!

Warner Brothers Games Montreal and Gotham Knights asked us to create the golden Mask for the Voice of the Court. But since creating a prop is only half the fun we though, why not make the full costume and get Benni a nice cosplay photoshoot as well? And that’s what we did!
