This costume took approximately 7 months to complete from start to finish.
The armour is wonderflex, the helmet and halberd head are corrugated card, foam and papier mache, the sword is wooden (made by my father), and the scabbard is foam, corrugated card, duct tape and papier mache as well.
I also had the privilege of meeting Hrist's voice actor, Tara Platt.
