Version: Nightingale Armor

Awards Won: 1st Place in Gaming at PHXCC2012
Details: The entirety of this armor is made from craft foam, that was sealed, detailed (with hot glue and carving into the foam) and then painted to resemble leather texture. It is all heated into shape and then attached directly onto a base black catsuit. You can find a small tutorial of the painting/creating process of the armor here.The bracers are attached to gloves, and the armor below the waist is actually attached to a detachable belt. All of the silver adornments, buckles and rivets were sculpted from sculpy and sprayed silver.
The quiver is an altered and painted purse bag, with hand painted silver designs; it attaches directly to the back of the cape and sports the arrows made from wooden dowels, craft foam tips, and feather ends. The Nightingale bow is built on top of a real MartinX Recurve bow; the new body was made with paper mache and paperclay, sealed and painted. All of the makeup is done by Sheila herself and she's also wearing G&G GBT Violet contacts.
