Thread: Armored Little Mermaid Cosplay

    Armored Little Mermaid Cosplay

    Hi guys! I made an Armored Little Mermaid cosplay for my last con, but alas my wig didn't come in on time. I didn't want to get a new one, so I just went sans wig. I'll definitely rewear this cosplay with the wig, but that's why I have no red hair in these photos.

    I got a lot of Mera & Aquaman (I did use a whole lot of green & gold) but I still had a lot of fun wearing it! I also just started rolling with the Mera references xD I'll post a few more pics later, the computer I'm writing this on isn't equipped (yet) to resize my massive photos, haha.

    Hope you enjoy <3 If you want to see more, here's my cosplay page.

    Most of it is craft foam sandwiched between Wonderflex. The really 3D detailing is Wonderflex over EVA foam, as is pretty much the entire pauldron (though the pauldron base has no Wonderflex on it).

    Besides the bracers, I actually regarded this one to be a relatively less-detailed one haha! But a lot of patience, lots of pieces of foam and wonderflex, and tedious painting.

    Thank you!

    Also, I took a handful of WIP pics, would that be of interest to anyone?

    Thank you!! I used Wonderflex for this armor, but I recently changed over to using primarily Worbla (partially cause I can buy it locally, and because the adhesive is stronger imo).

    Yes! I bought those tights though

    Aaaand the WIP photos from this armor set, which I had conveniently tiled at some point apparently. Armor was made of Wonderflex, craft foam, and EVA foam. All of it was sealed/smoothed with wood glue and primed black before painting (I prime anything metallic black underneath). Hope this awkwardly late set of WIP photos is helpful to someone

    Edit: The seashells of the top was from a foam seashell top I bought from Amazon.

    Awesome! I actually wanted to do a similar cosplay for King Triton about three years ago but have absolutely no skill for these kinds of things.
