Sephiroth armor tutorial 1 by dances-with-hipsters Sephiroth armor tutorial 1 by dances-with-hipsters
I hope this is helpful. I have never posted a tutorial before and wasn't even sure what category to put this in. Its a large file, sorry about that... In case you don't know what wonderflex is, I have a link for you ^3^ [link] Wonderflex is a sheet of plastic that can be cut and heated in order to mold it into any shape you want. It is a great base for many different projects. I have had the huge sheet for 2 years and am just finishing up using it with this project. I'll need to buy some more and I'm thinking of getting some friendly plastic to go along with it. That will make most of the clay parts unnecessary.

This Sephiroth cosplay is for :icontorraiko: and made by me.

Very nice.

Wonderflex is a god send. Just curious, how much did it cost you for the materials?
The enormous sheet of wonderflex that took me 2 years to finish was $50. I think the gesso was something like $10 and the clay was the cheap stuff XD something like $7. All in all, it was pretty cheap considering.

Thank you~!!!

is this how you made your Sora/Cloud pauldrons?
Yup! Actually this is how I made Cloud, Sora was before I got wonderflex so I made it completely out of clay, which is why it keeps cracking *anger* Wonderflex keeps armor from falling apart.

I actually coated Cloud with this stuff called Sculpt a mold instead of clay. That gave it a more textured look and it looks more like leather. ^3^

ooooooh, I'll have to check out sculpt a mold out then...

I've used wonderflex before but I've never thought of doing it like this, it looks awesome already.
