Hello everyone. I'm soon going to be starting working on my first cosplay and I'm quite excited! For my first project, I plan to create Elspeth, Sun's Champion from Magic the Gathering. Was hoping I could get some pointers, tips, advice, etc. on developing the costume.
Specifically, I'm looking for suggestions/patterns on how to create her hood/cape and 'skirt, how to make the lion head on her breastplate, as well as how to create the middle, gold portion of her spear.
Here are some reference images:
Thank you for any guidance!
