Praise The Dark Souls Cosplay

This Dark Souls cosplay by Cosarmor & Props won top prize at the Emerald City Comic Con earlier this month with this Dragon Slayer Ornstein ensemble, and for good reason: it’s practically an actual suit of armour.

Cosarmor tells me the suit “is 100% scratch built using primarily heat-formed expanded PVC (Sintra/Komatex), and most of the detailing was done with Magic Sculpt epoxy putty”, while a small portion of the armor ncludes EVA foam and black Worbla.

The costume also uses weathered aluminium chainmail, “wet-felted wool dreadlocks, weathered silk fabric, and over 100 neodymium magnets”. The helm’s visor is also able to lock in position, as well as be removed.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
