Nova (Elite Agent)
HEROES OF THE STORM
I originally wanted to finish Nova for BlizzCon 2015 but dropped her when I noticed that I couldn’t build her ponytail exactly like in the reference. I also had never worked with EVA foam before and was in way over my head and on a deadly tight time schedule. To save my mental health I stopped building this costume and went to BlizzCon just as a normal person. WHICH WAS STILL AMAZING!
Then, two years later I finally finished Nova as part of my Animated LED Book. The ponytail isn’t exactly close to the original reference and I could probably already built it a lot cleaner as I began two years ago – but I’m still very proud of the result!
