Texturing is in my opinion one of the most enjoyable aspects of costume making, and this arm was the perfect occasion to try new techniques. The goal here was to keep it lightweight (the entire pauldron is only 96 grams – around 0.2 lbs) without breaking the budget. As a consequence, I had to rely on materials like EVA foam, thermoplastics, and epoxy resin coating for this project. My favourite part is the glove, which is composed of 24 articulated pieces sewed individually to a fabric base.
These pieces found a new home in Italy.
