View Full Version : Help with LOTR Cosplay!

09-06-2010, 07:10 PM
So I'm doing the Witch King of Angmar / Lord of the Nazgul for Halloween, and I need help with the gauntlets, shoulder armor, and the cactus of a helmet. Any pointers on making fake armor / making it look like real metal / making it look worn? HELP PLEASE :lost:

sintra, wonderflex...

as for painting and weathering...use a metallic primer then a few layers of a clear coat spray paint, then paint with metallic black spray paint and after it dries lightly sand some scratches with some super fine grit sandpaper..once it looks good give it a few more coats of clear coat :)

Practice painting on some extra stuff you dont need to get a feel for it.

As for making the armor..I can't quite picture it but I know it's kind of layered. I'm not well informed as to armor making though...
