Nightmare (Soulcalibur III) - Soulcalibur


Alcon 2008

Alcon 2008 Masquerade Winner (group entry)




This was hauled together along with Kilik in the space of a month. Most of it being completed in the last week, as expected.

The armour is all made out of mountboard. Glued together, and then painted (NO WONDERFLEX FOR ME EVAR). The bits of amour are all bolted together and move pretty much in the way real armour should. We also chucked some chain mail on there which I did in my lunch break at work.

The arm we did by making a little one armed jacket, and then we started to stick foam up it. My glue gun then decided to stop working, so I smashed it to pieces. In his terror Matt offered my some duct tape, and so we used that to make the main shape of the arm. We then used liquid latex painted over loo roll to give the arm the awesome skin like feel- if you ever see us at a con, shake nightmares hand- it's really gross!

The sword was a Pvc pipe that we soved a lump hammer in for the hilt, so the weight distribution would be better. We then got two slabs of polystyrene, carved the sword using a soldering iron/knife, and then covered it in masking tape. The eyes were made out of a kids barbie bowl which we painted into the inside, and then put a plastic doam that we had searched everywhere for (and were on this packet of PC world stuff that cost us £20). They work the same way fursuit "follow me" eyes do. We then paper Ma-ched it and painted it to look good. The veins were made of brown window sealent and are squishy to the touch still.
