This time Iíll bring you guys something really good, the Frostmourne and Arthas Warcraft cosplay.WarcraftIII is one of the famous PC game launched by Blizzard. Among all the great weapons, Arthasí powerful sword Frostmourne has always ruled the market and attracted the most attention. Now Iím going to show you how to make this incredible stuff.

Material: GRP, polyester putty, spray paint.

Tool: mud, plaster, spray gun


1. draw the weaponís outline on wooden board, make sure you paint it symmetrically if itís so. In this picture I use Wardenís weapon instead, of course the Frostmourne is the same procedure.


2. form the model of it with mud, so as the armor. Donít be afraid to try, because actually itís not a difficult job. Itís kinda like you play with plasticene in the childhood. First form the shape in the big picture, then detail the specific parts.


3. when youíve done the sculpture, spray some soap water, then make the model with plaster. Usually, Iíll handle it to some professional to finish it. However, if youíre interested, you can do it on your own in case that youíve got a unfurnished room or a yard at home because it really brings a lot of powder and rubbish.


4. fulfill the plaster mode with resin and glass fiber, and then vent it until itís solid. Be patient because itís chemical reaction. This is how it is.


5. there must be some bubble and uneven parts on the weapon. Sand it with raw sand paper and fine sandpaper till itís smooth. Clean the surface and dry it.


6.the armor is the same process. Now you can stabilize the screws and brackets on the armor with resin.


7.color it as the routine in previous articles if youíve read some. That is to spray a layer of black paint to make the basement, then color it according to what you need, such as gold or silver.


8.fine things like Frostmourne need spray gun to deal with the color transition in details.


This is the finished picture. Howís it?


Letís put the armor and scapula together. Theyíre great.

Cosplayer is wearing armors and holding Frostmourne on the stage, really display a sense of iron character.

I agree with Fightstar. The armor-making tutorial seems to be lacking.
