When it's broken down like that it looks a LOT more manageable. I need to find something similar and/or draw up something similar to that for my Lon'qu.

So okay, I'm convinced on Yarne. Also you work really fast, Kaze.

I figured one way of going about it, and I hope they have it in range of where I live, is to use foam padding with a width and length of 1 in. x 2 in. as an under layer and using wire and fiberglass for the armor pieces. I've never really worked with fiberglass and I think there might honestly be an easier and cheaper alternative but as of right now its not coming to my mind.

Nami told me that for the crotch area, I could probably use shorts, or furred shorts, and that would be good. In all honesty I want as less exposure as I can possibly get cause Yarne is kinda just five pieces of armor and then muscles.

I have no idea of how to go about the feet. :V I figure I could probably find hobbit feet online and then add claws to the toes and I'd be good. It would at least be a good reason to justify having hobbit feet in my closet.

As for the head, maybe have a black wig first for the base and then use a hat to build the ears on. I think that's all a matter of sewing which I honestly think I should leave in the hands of somebody who knows what they're doing.

I don't know what weapon Yarne uses. I assume a sword.

Why isn't this called the Kazplay Thread?

Because I am not Kaz, I am Kaze. >:(

And for Yarne's armor, I'd probably do a couple layers of craft foam in between worbla to give it a solid feel. Craft Foam is extremely cheap and you can definitely buy it in bulk. Worbla is something you'll have to purchase online and is fairly cheap, all things considered.

I can get you pricing on the Worbla and craft foam if you want? Hell, I can even make the armor if you're okay with that, I'd just need you to come up with some patterns in the same way I did earlier and send those patterns to me.

The shorts are a great idea, and as for your feet, we can probably get you into some shoes and hide them under a layer of fur. That way you aren't walking around barefoot. (This is where we take liberties on the character design for the sake of personal comfort and safety)

Yarne's weapon is his Taguel form which is impossible to emulate, so you can just run around without having to worry about a weapon.

I might be okay with the armor and I'm willing to provide the funds for it and work on the other stuff (though I might need help. I'm not really as good at cosplay. More of a throw a costume together for Halloween kinda guy)

You would need my measurements, I'd guess?

Yes, I can provide tutorials on how to get those patterns made. It's fairly easy and once you get them to me I can start fabricating the armor!

I will! Today is my busier days so I might be able to get them while I get off after 5 tomorrow (or look while I'm in Shadowrun)

Yarne uses a Beaststone. You don't NEED to carry one but if you wanted to go the extra mile you could cart one around. I guess.

Spoiler for big-asj reference shot:


Better bulk up, Nuva.

I'm only insistent that the little tuft of hair on top of your head be pink. Just 'cause.

Dude, Yarne's bunny butt is cute and all, but the thought of Nuva wagging anything is a little nauseating.

New post due to image limit:

So instead of going that route since, by itself, the Wonderflex is pretty flimsy, I decided to use a craft foam core wrapped in Worbla.

So first we cut the pattern out of the craft foam!

Spoiler for BIG:


Then we cut out a couple squares of Worbla to sandwich the foam in

Spoiler for BIG:


Use a heat gun to heat up the worbla so that it can be manipulated

Spoiler for BIG:




And then press down the sides to seal the craft foam inside and ensure air bubbles don't get in:

Spoiler for BIG:


Finally cut it out:

Spoiler for BIG:


And Shape:

Spoiler for BIG:


And there's the base!

-

Notes

- UNFORTUNATELY I cut the edges too close and when I went to form the worbla around my arm, the edges opened up and air bubbles did seep in and deformed the worbla. Usually this can be repaired through re-heating, which I am going to do in order to save money and materials. So for future reference, leave enough worbla around the edges to properly seal the foam in!
