Fantastic work, mate!  I have never used (or even heard of) Worbla.  Is it easy to work with?

Thanks!
Not that easy. You need to plan ahead if you don't want to screw up your worbla sheets.
Also bubbles are an all time favourite problem.
But that's still my favourite material :)

I use PVC for my armoring.  PVC or steel mesh layered in fiberglass and Bondo.  Messy and time-consuming, but the end product is fairly solid.

Can you cut the worbla with scissors?  It looks rather thin.

Also, fantastic work.  I just saw the Ebony WIP #3!  Looks awesome!  What else are you going to be adding to it?

Worbla can be cut with scissors, yeah. It's about 1 mm thick.
But it's not as easy to cut as paper or fabric. It's like you cut PVC sheets.
Check out this short info about it: www.worbla.com/

I recommend to try this material, it really is nice to work with if you know the tricks :)

Thanks!
I'll do the whole ebony package from neck to toe.
The only thing I'll not add is the helmet, since I already have my ancient nord helmet.

Will this be a full set (after all you also have the dagger & the axe) or just the chestplate and some other armor parts? Looking forward to following your progress on this project.

Almost.
Will do the boots, gauntlets, chestplate with the pauldrons, but probably not the helmet.
Since I do have my uh… ancient iron helmet and this is somehow my trademark.
Or however you want to call that :)
But from neck to toe it will be all ebony.

Well, we are not that far away from each other.
If you recommend a few interessante deutsche Conventions, we could meet there :D

Still looking for at least one big convention in Germany.

ggg - If you ever make it to one let me know, there are too few Skyrim fans at conventions. The only one I am certain I will so far attend is Dokomi in June. Though like most larger conventions that is manga/anime focused, but it's fairly large and there are a lot of other cosplays, too. Animexx.de has a list of the events animexx.onlinewelten.com/event…

Probably a few local onces that are close enough so I don't need to book a hotel will be added over the year.

Hm… Maybe it'll be Gamescom in Köln, but not sure yet.
Will already attend a convention in May not far away from here.
And also the MPS (Mittelalterliches Phantasie Spektakel) when it comes to our place :)

Germany has so many Conventions… I'd be glad if we could have a few more.
We only have like 2 I know of.

I considered the gamescon, too, because it's less manga orientated but have not made up my mind yet.

I can afford only one or two conventions per year. I want to save my money for real holidays at a beach or something…
But if Germany, then definitely the Gamescom, because Bethesda is there, hahahah :D
And yeah, less Manga and probably less furries.

So glad you're doing this! I was actually looking to do Ebony armor with Worbla. That or Daedric armor. I've seen female Ebony armor and male Daedric armor done before, but no female Daedric armor. Anyhow, I'm happy to see your WIP shots. ^^

Daedric armor is a bit more complicated as I've seen. But as far as I know a few artists mastered this task :)
I don't like the female ebony armor much, that's why I chose the 'boobless' male version of it.
Thanks, more WIP shots will be added soon.
