I spent an entire day in my friends garage sanding one horn, comparing, sanding the other horn, comparing, etc. So, after all the foam pieces papercract covered, detailed, and formed, everything was coated in about 5 layers of wood glue. I know that was the case for me anyway. So what did I do? I used a combination of clay sculpting tools and the tools from an old papercraf repair kit to get into the creases and edges to make the details as sharp as I could manage.

So, after a ton more shaping, sanding, cutting, etc. To do this, I screwed some drywall anchors into the base of the horns and drilled a couple papecraft holes in the headpiece and simply screwed the horns in. As I mentioned earlier, most of the rest of the costume was done by my wife. First she gathered TONS of reference images and went to the fabric store to purchase a load of green fabric.
We knew from the outset that this was a pretty big job what with all the armor and sewing and everything, so we lapercraft about doing our homework.
I have never made gems before, papercrft of course it would have been easier to have just purchased some cheap gems from the store — but where is the fun in that? It cracked the paint that I had just finished, left me with a huge hole in the armor piece, and was just pretty much hideous.
After priming and painting, it dawned on me that I had no clue helmt to attach the bracers to her. It comes in sheets of various sizes and can be purchased online at many different places.
As bad as I was about taking in-progress shots, she was worse. After this whole thing, I can honestly say that I have so much more respect for people who do this on a regular basis.

yelmet She took tons of measurements of my daughter and used half a pad of tracing paper making the pattern for the costume. Once I had one done, I just flipped the template over on another piece of foam, transferred, and made a mirror copy. For those who are unaware, Worbla is a thermoplastic material.
Anywho… the process of covering was largely the same for most of the pieces of armor.
Worbla has a pretty rough texture — and obviously armor should ideally be smooth. He paperctaft a great video on making armor using craft foam and Worbla which I followed to the letter. Too late to do anything about it at that point though — Halloween was only 3 days away and we were nowhere near done. So I dremeled out all the holes and simply superglued in the other eyelets. Just foam, superglue, and more plastic jewels.
Seriously, this was taken with a Galaxy S5. Note for next time — start making the costume earlier. Secondly, I used eyelets that were too large for the eyelet pliers that I had.
Everywhere that I found online suggests using the pink type of foam, but all I could find at my local hardware store was blue. I wanted all of the additional shapes in the design to be raised to give it a bit more detail and depthso those shapes were also cut out of an additional piece of foam and then superglued to the template.
Foam melts when you get it too hot. Hopefully that makes some sense. Where we live it gets pretty cold on Halloween, so the inside of the coat was lined with green fleece and cotton. The horns are made papercrzft foam. That piece got set aside with the horns and I moved on to the next bits: I picked up some wood filler, but in the end, I wound up only using it for the horns.
On the same bracer. I would just have to do my best to make the two bracers match.

Cut it super close — but pulled it off. After cutting it off, I used the template, drew some sketches to make a more detailed template that matched as closely as my limited skills and timeline could manage the screenshots from the movie, then transferred it and cut the pieces out of craft foam. From the backside of the headpiece this left the heads of the screws visible, but this would later be covered anyway.
I am not sure if there is any difference between the two colors — but the blue foam worked just fine. Loii see, depending on whose cosplay you look at, or which screencap you papercrat online of the actual armor piece, they all seem to be slightly ehlmet. This would at least give me some frame of reference for outlining later on when the piece was covered.
In the end, my wife wound llki making the majority of the leather and cloth bits while my main focus was on the armor and helmet. Without a physical piece to actually compare to, I just sorta winged it.
Not a single picture was taken. I wish that I had thought about this beforehand though, because when you are cutting and sanding the foam into shape, hot glue dries pretty hard and is terrible to try to get through with sandpaper or a knife.
The shoulder piece was the trickiest part — primarily because I strayed from the formula. Basically for the hair, I papercraaft the v-cuts that I had previously made and made indentations in the Worbla to serve as a guide. Keep in mind that you can sand this foam — so make your cuts close to where you want them and use sandpaper papercrsft a rasp or something to fine tune.
