This is my cosplay for BlizzCon 2011 as Female Nozdormu, Aspect of the Bronze Dragonflight and Master of Time.
Took roughly 4 months to complete, and still wasn't able to complete everything I wanted to.
What this cosplay consists of:
Shoulder is a cardboard/craft foam/styro foam skeleton. Then layers of expanding foam carved with an exato knife in stages. Then paper mache'd, and modge podged. Then the dragon head and spikes covered with paper clay for details. All the tiny spikes and teeth are paper clay as well.
Then spray painted, weathered, and details painted on. More weathering. Then LED's added to the eyes, then covered in hot glue to create the 'eye ball'.
The sand/hour glass was created by cutting a plastic fish bowl in 4 sections and cut to fit. Then attached like ( ( so the sand sat in the middle and looked deeper than it was. Glued in place with Hot Glue. Yes thats real, free floating sand
Attatched with velcro straps in a harness like fashion
All gold scale parts are actual Scale Mail, weaved by hand. Scales and rings bought from Ringlord.com
Belt and all trim is craft foam.
Loincloth/spade/panel thingys are a curtain covered with a thin gray fabric. Then crinkled to give lines and texture.
LED Gems: Created from resin, carved and LED's put in before curing. (Technique from the great Sventlana/Kaumi)
Then painted with nail polish on the back and glued in place.
Total of 4 light up gems on my costume.
Eyebrows made from pipe cleaners cut down to the wiring. Then glued a strip of hair from my extensions with Hair Glue. Also how my eyebrows and ears stayed on and upright. I love hair glue!
Gold leafing adheared with eyelash glue and then blot the leaf sheet where I want it. Stayed on all day, had to scrub it off that night lol. Was a great method to hide my real eyebrows
Over all, lots of creative techniques used. Thanks to other cosplayers like Sventlana (expanding foam and LED gems and Sparkle Pispi (raised 3D craft foam edging)
Any other questions feel free and ask!!
