Xin Zhao, League of Legends WIP by EminenceRain Xin Zhao, League of Legends WIP by EminenceRain
Xin Zhao, League of Legends
Warring Kingdoms Skin

Work in progress -
Armor work

Sculpted the basic shape for the dragon's head that would be mounted on  the left shoulder plate. After it hardens I'll use it to cast the dragons head out of worbla to keep it light enough to wear.

This is  for Katsucon, AnimeBoston, and PAX East in 2014. I hope to meet fellow League cosplayers at the gatherings :DHatsune Miku-13 (Wink and Heart)

This looks AMAZING. You've inspired me to want to make Dragonblade Riven for PAX East. We can match! Did you simply mold the heated worbla over the dragon head?

This looks amazing so far! *o* I'm really curious about how you'd go about casting Worbla! I'm familiar with resin casting and do it fairly often, but I can't imagine how it would work with Worbla xD; Pressing sheets into a silicone mould?

Looks great so far! Too bad i'm in europe and only attend cons there but i'll be looking forward to see pictures of your finished work. I assume you'll heaten up the worbla and just drape it over the dragons head? Seems an awful lot of work to just sculpt a dragon head you wont even use eventually.

Thanks. Yeah it's necessary, to keep the pieces lightweight. A hollow worbla dragons head will be better than walking around with a heavy piece that will cause a lot of stress to the straps risking the potential of the pieces to fall off and break during a convention. Also walking around in heavy armor will tire me out and make the costume a lot hotter due to additional energy used to carry such weight.

Yep I know :P But it is a bit of  a waste or can you re-use it?

I doubt it and don't plan to. It most likely will be destroyed in the demolding process. It's not that different that the  resin  casting process, other than it being quicker and simpler.

That's what I was thinking - I still get a little sad when the clay sculpt has to go tho... Kinda makes me want to fire up my kiln and try to salvage them :)
