Tip: When tackling a new material or technique you can refer to video tutorials that are available online! The cosplay community loves sharing techniques and information to make your time in the shop easier and more enjoyable.
One of the most important things to keep in mind when making a stylized character is your paint job! Don’t hesitate to put some color in your highlights and shadows! For this character I used a blues and purples to get a more video game like look to the armor pieces.
Tip: Are you using 3D prints as apart of your costume? It is so important to take that time and really clean up your prints! For this costume I have at least 5 layers of sanded filler primer and spot putty bondo! Also if you want it REALLY smooth don’t forget to wetsand, it makes a world of difference!
