Tira 5 Progress Dump #1: Gauntlets and Shoe Armor
All of the armor for my Soul Calibur 5 Tira costume was made from Worbla, foamies, aluminum foil, and wire. I started by building each piece out of foamies, then strengthened and built them up with the wire and aluminum foil. Once that was done, I coated all of it in Worbla and sculpted the worbla layers with my hands and clay tools by reheating it over and over until I ended up with what you see here.
I’m really glad Tira is a rough-and-tumble gross kind of character, it let me take advantage of the grainy texture of the Worbla. I think the layers of black and silver and black/silver mixed paints came out really nicely!
