Some of you may have seen my Dragon Priest mask thread, but this one is a bit different because I'll be working on the entire costume for the Dragon Priest Krosis, from Skyrim.
I started by taking a raw cast from the improved DP mold.
I sculpted the crest out of clay, then molded it and casted it.
To make the crown, I measured how long it would have to be and cut out three lengths of cardstock and glued them together. I then took some foamie sheets and cut the wavy pattern into it and stuck it onto the cardstock. To seal it for painting, I applied mod podge with a brush and coated it in clear acrylic. Then hot glue and paint!
I added slight weathering to the cloth with brown and granite spray paint. The spine parts were actually coat hangers that I trimmed and painted.
Added a bunch of battle damage and whatnot, painted it and weathered it with green and granite acrylic. I used a sponge to apply it where necessary.
And put it all together!
