Cosplayer CeruleanDraco > Costume of Lancelot of the Lake (Berserker) from Fate/Zero
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- i used poster board to draft individual pieces trying to get the shape as accurate as possible. once the desired shape was achieved, made a 6mm foam version using duct tape and super glue to hold its shape. once that was complete, i added wonderflex (smooth variety) to the top using a heat gun and my hands to shape it around the foam. after that, i painted it with killz to get rid of any texture that was left over then added spackle paste to get rid of any gaps in the wonderflex, then killz'd it again. once everything was sanded, i sprayed it with black and then misted with blue paint to get that odd color that he has.
i must also give many thanks to my lovely cosplay assistant, TATTO, for all support in helping the project see completion in time for AX. she did most of the sanding while i was constructing it. as well as made the bodysuit i'm wearing underneath, the headdress attached to the helm, and back cords~
- Personal Thoughts:
forgive me for any inaccuracies, i made this in 3 weeks before AX for the Fate/Zero booth. i put about 120 hours of work into it overall and i would have like an extra 30 to smooth out any issues, but whatcha' gonna' do? but overall, i'm really proud of this, it was my first time making an entire suit of armor. it was defintely a learning experience and i'm pretty sure i got a cosplay class upgrade. -sigh now i need to start earning EXP for armor class :
