All your armour and weapons are truly awesome, just selling up some props and armour to fund some of your amazing creations. Hope the hand heals soon

Hey, thanks :) Hope it, too.
It's annoying that I'm not allowed to work on my props because of the stress my hand can get.

How do you put it on? Does it slide over your head or will it open up at a seam? ^_^

It's magic :D

You see the the seam in the back? The shoulder piece is only staying in place with very strong magnets.
I take off the shoulder part, carefully open the back and dive into the armor. Slowly putting one arm and then the other through the holes.
You don't want to see that…
Then I put the shoulder piece back.
It works! And the best part is, it's almost as seamless as the ingame version.

Worbla is a bit flexible so it's possible to do it like this.

I was wondering that! I had a set of inclosed chest armour once and it opened at two side seams with little hinges inside the shouldersand the shoulder pouldrens velcro'ed on but, I always got my ears all cut up when I'd try and get my head through the neck hole XD That one was made of resin though.

Have you had a good experience working with worbla? I've heard of it but never used it myself.

Ouch, I had the same problem with my first armor. Always cut myself during a convention…
But only because of some loose piece of worbla that was pointy :(

This is my second armor with worbla and I learned from the mistakes I did.
Worbla is THE material for sturdy armors. You know kamuicosplay?
See her amazing Worbla armor creations and you know why it gets more and more popular with the cosplay scene.

Have you found it to be easy to work with? Her armor is definitely impressive! =) I am just concerned that it works like WonderFlex did, and I stayed away from that one after seeing peoples' props actually sagging because the Baltimore city heat was actually enough to resoften the Wonderflex. XD

Worbla is different, from what I've heard and read.
Give it a chance, buy a small piece and try to work with.
Never worked with Wonderflex but as read from kamui Worbla is much better.

Not sure of the heat, though. I live in a country that gets about 37 degrees max in summer.
Never had my armor with me on a hot day, though. Might be difficult, too but I'd need to look it up first :)

Holy moley what country do you live in?! =O Is that 37 Fahrenheit or Celsius?

I think I will try a sheet of it out and see what happens! What method do you use to heat it with? A heatgun?

It's celsius, it's pretty normal I guess. Switzerland? :)

Yes, a heatgun works best for it.

I like this a lot, really great weathering.

Thanks :)
Weathering is pretty easy. The sculpting and making of the armor itself was time consuming.

p.s. It totally looks like there is a face on the middle of the upper back.  What has been seen cannot be unseen.
