I thought I would share a collage of in progress photos of my armor making experience, as Worbla is back in my store [link]! Celebrate all the Worbla!!!

My Facebook has a lot more detailed progress photos of this build: [link]

This is my full armor set & sword for Fiora - League of Legends. Made out of Worbla (sword made out of wood, hilt made of Worbla). This took over 4 weeks of learning a new technique and using a new material -it was a good and agonizing experience lol.
Most fun part: making the actual armor pieces!
Most pleasant surprise: Painting the pieces was actually therapeutic.
Most frustrating part: attaching the armor pieces to myself.
Most infuriating part: the sword. I suck at making props. Just suck at it.

You can purchase Worbla at my online store here: [link]

I learned how to use Worbla through Kamui Cosplay. Her video tutorials are here: [link]

Beautiful work! I'm preparing to tackle Worbla for my horses armor... I'm sure the most frustrating part will be attaching them to her :)

Great work you did here! I'm on a cosplay too (Katarina High command precisely) and I wanted to make the swords out of worbla, do you have any advice/tutos for me ? =D

Amazing! I love the consistancy  of style. You could work at WETA in New Zealand.

Oh yea, the armor looks really good, yet you suck at making props. You are a great comedienne too. XD

Can anyone redirect me to her tutorial pics on facebook.  I couldn't locate w/in facebook.  Any clues?  I have to make my own costume because nothing will fit me (way too tiny).  Also I saw in summary you used Victoria Secrets bras but I don't see that on your page.  Help please, anyone.
