I’m absolutely obsessed with Monster Hunter and played several games of the series. And Monster Hunter World is by far my favorite! Especially this title is super beginner friendly, incredible fun and has a great difficulty leave. In addition, its armor designs look like there were made just for me! I mean, who can resist to massive armor bikinis and completely insane weapons made out of skulls, bones and skin of monsters?
Nergigante is my absolute favorite monster in Monster Hunter World and I simply adore its armor set. It’s super adorable in the game and its armor set consists out of thousands spikes with crazy claws as weapons. While the costume looked fun and doable at the beginning, it turned out to be very challenging and drowned us in at the end. The whole project was made out of EVA foam and covered in thousands of scales that I burned in with my soldering iron for endless hours. In addition I sculpted, shaped, primed, painted and glued on over 800 individual spikes all over the costume.
I’m especially proud of the Decimation Claws, the Nergigante Dual blades, I made for the costume. I actually lost count of how much EVA foam and foam clay I used for the project, but it was clearly a whole lot. In total we worked 3 months on this costume and as always Benni was a huge help! I’m so proud how the Nergigante Armor turned out!
