The Separator axe, belt buckle and gauntlets all made for Oz Comic Con. This was my first real piece made with Worbla and I have to say, never again. I can understand how some people might enjoy working with it, especially for armour creation, but for me it lacks precision. It is a pain to sand, shaping causes all sorts of issues and it has to be held in shape by hand while it cools and once it’s warmed up again it wants to lose it’s sharp edges due to the thermal plastic properties. All round it was really not my thing.
The belt buckle and gauntlet spikes were sculpted in clay then moulded then the buckle was cast in resin and the spikes cold cast.
In the game the Tainted Coil are beings leftover from when Ormagodden was killed, along with the Titans.
These beings were basically kept from being massacred by everything else by the Pity of the Titans.
Due to overwhelming love for the Titans, they took to wearing these very restrictive and VERY PAINFUL outfits to look more appealing to their masters.
Then the Titans ascended to another plane of existence.
And it went downhill from there.
All the demonic, awful stuff they do/did, and this lifestyle of embracing and finding pleasure in pain? It all becomes traced back to that willingness to be more appealing to beings that viewed them as PETS.
An interesting lesson to be sure: In your attempts to twist and mutilate yourself to become someone elses’ image of beauty, the moment that somebody else leaves you behind that shell ends up just being a twisted mess, and you lose yourself altogether.
My point being: Don’t twist yourself because you’re making moon eyes at somebody else.
Though I’d still love to be a twisted pain monster ueu
Brutal Legend Storyboards - Part 6
Befriending the Zaulia, march to the sea
Appropriately, we met these two at the Double Fine booth, who promptly went wild.
And for good reason! Brutal Legend cosplays are ridiculously rare and ridiculously complicated, and these two in particular were amazing.
