I just love the art of Guild Wars so natually for my upcoming costume, I decided to do a GW costume. It was a very tough choice because I love so many. But I finally decided on Melandru. I just love the nature-like design and how her body seems to be carved from wood.
But I am finding I might've bitten off more then I can chew. ^^;
The con's not til October so I have plenty of time but I am seriously stuck on some parts. I have a brown leotard that I'm going to use. And as far as all the tree roots growing from her body, I work at a craft store so you know those little pic-o-rama diaramas you can buy fake trees and grass for? Well I'm basically using that. ^^
I just don't know how to go about making the bark/roots that are entwined around her legs. I don't know how to use much as far as materials go so wonderflex, vacuuform, plastic, etc is pretty much out of the question. All I know how to use it paper mache, craft foam, etc. I was thinking maybe craft foam velcro'ed to the bodysuit? But then that might wrinkle/tear when I walk...
Ugh, I just love this costume so much and want to do it SO badly. Can someone give me a bit of a starting point?
