I’m laughing so hard because I JUST finished a hands-bra cosplay and spent the entire time thinking how weird it was.
First look at my Guild Wars 2 Orrian armor cosplay! I had a shoot a few weeks back with Shunichi Al Hayashi and his work continues to amaze me. This shows off the detail on some of my favorite pieces of this costume and I’m so excited to see what he does with the rest of the set!
All of the armor was constructed from Worbla, craft foam, and Friendly Plastic, with detailing in puff paint and painted with normal acrylics.
Character: Orrian Armor
Series: Guild Wars 2

I’m in the last stages of my Guild Wars 2 Orrian armor cosplay! Just working on small touchups. The breastplate definitely needed the most updating in terms of the paint job - the details stand out so much more now, don’t you think?

Here’s a little progress on my Guild Wars 2 Orrian Armor cosplay! The paint job is almost complete - I still need to go in and clean up some of the detailing, add a little more shadowing/contrast, etc. All of the rigging and fabric portions are finished as well, so I’m getting close. Time to work on a weapon and add some accessories (I’m thinking a pair of resin-cast transparent wings and maybe a Commander title. Let me know if you think of any other fun easter eggs to add!).

Watching Sherlock and adding ALL THE DETAIL to my GW2 Orrian Armor. This is the life.
Material is Worbla, with puff paint designs. These are almost ready to get their final paint job.
Back from NYC with some more progress on the claw gauntlets for my GW2 Orrian armor. For some reason, these have been incredibly slow to complete - it’s taken me 2+ hours per finger. I’m still refining the thumb pattern and adding details, but they’re coming along!
Constructed from Worbla and craft foam.
