Knight of Blood by caseroo12 Knight of Blood by caseroo12
I really love this shot, I saw a drawing awhile ago of Karkat pulling this pose. (If someone can find the picture, I'll link to it.) The design is Rumminovs [link]
The armor was started about a few weeks after AX 2012 and is made entirely out of craft foam. The cape was hand beaded by myself. The shirt and pants were made days before ALA 2013, and they look really bad :C The wig is from epiccosplay and the gloves from welovecolors.

Wow, I love this! Did you rigid coat this or something? Just wondering how you achieved the structure. Thanks!

I darted it to get the curves and sealed it with mod podge but that's really about it

Also how did you get the edging to look like that? Painted over with puffy paint or hot glue I'm guessing?

Hey, I'm planning to do something like this very soon for myself! So, I was looking for a good paint to buy but I can't find black or something dark in any of the recommended brands. I'm sure you get asked this often but, what paint did you use?

I used really cheap acrylic paint! The brand is called "Craft Smart" and can be found at Micheals Craft Store.

Oh, ok, And then the basic floor wax or clear painter's touch paint over it for the shine?

I used about 7 coats of glossy modge podge, and 2 coats of DuraClear Matte Varnish.

One last question, what did you seal the foam with before painting?

:iconcaseroo12:
caseroo12 Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2013  Student Artisan Crafter
Actually, I didn't seal it before I painted. Craft foam is a closed cell foam which means that you can paint over it without having to seal it first! Just make sure that you seal it after you finish painting it ;P

Oh, great! That's going to save me a lot of trouble. Ok.. I hate to keep bothering you with these questions, but I got another.. I notice there are rivet things to connect the two loose pieces on the side of the chest plate. Do those pivot? If so what are they? I'm making the legs with mine so I can't glue that together since it needs to bend..

Naw man, asking questions is good! I really don't mind.
The "rivets" are brads, unless you can find the ultra heavy duty ones (hard to find) I wouldn't advise using them as pivot points for leg armor. I had to keep tightening mine all day (sometimes they would start poking my back TT.TT) and it was really annoying

Hahaha! I see what you did there~ Awesome job and props for making your armor! Too bad I couldn't make it to ALA, else I would have been able to see this epicness in person!

Thank you very much! It's probably better that you didn't see it at ALA as my make up was messy and splotchy due to the fact that I woke up late.
