Druid Tier 6 robe making of
Published on Dec 8, 2009

It was a long hard way and a half year of work after I was able zu finish this project. So here is my story:

In summer 2008 I was still stunned of World of Warcraft Tier sets of the Druid. After I finished Druid Tier 1 and Tier 3 I searched of a new challenge, a new project which will give me new expieriences, new techniques and materials. I searched the roots of the Druid Tier 1 looked and found the Druid Tier 6 set in my model-viewer.

There was a lot of luck that I found the right patterns for this: Teflon leather (I think it’s called swedenleather, too.) It’s normally used for upholstered furnitures and it’s buckskin look was just perfect for the wild, natural Druid Tier 6 set. It was sold for a very low price in my drapery and had a great attribute: My boyfriend was able to give it great details by soldering the fabric. Just take a look:

(Here you see the finished front part of my skirt.)

I was very easy to sold the fabric. You just need a steady hand and a bit of fantasy.

Feathers and a fake fur worked also gread for a natural look So, here are some progress photos:

Sometimes the easiest way is best way… I tried a lot, to start with this, searched for bra patterns, cut a lot of rubbish out of my look-a-like leather and still didn’t get it the right way…

But finally I just took an old bra an some glue and began trying… This method was really the best and so I almost finished my work on this part.

In the last months of my project I tried to loose some weight and I hope you see, that I was successful. I lost about 14 pounds for this night elf cosplay and was very satisfied with the result.

I glued a lot of the costume with hot glue because it was just easier than sewing it. There are a lot of single parts on it, like the skirt, the soldered front skirt part, the covering skirt layer with fake fur and featers, the bra, gloves and the bracers. All of this I put together with some Velcro tape, which was glued on every part.

I always love to work with mobile game developers as many of their games often have amazingly designed heroes. I also always wanted to build a functional bow! So when Empires&Puzzles reached out to us to create something from their game, I took the chance and decided to make Athena’s bow! It not only has a really cool design, it also has LEDs – the perfect match to test my skills!

Warner Brothers Games Montreal and Gotham Knights asked us to create the golden Mask for the Voice of the Court. But since creating a prop is only half the fun we though, why not make the full costume and get Benni a nice cosplay photoshoot as well? And that’s what we did!
