Monster Hunter, Stalk by grimdarkkommissar Monster Hunter, Stalk by grimdarkkommissar
Monster hunter, Barioth (us) or Beliolos in the japanese versions of the game.
blade master armor,

all the leather is actual real leather, including the belts and belt pouches, all hand made as well.

the helmet and armor is a mixture of sintra and apoxie sculpt, the majority of the hair is real horse hair,
the armor plates for the torso are actually all attached to a hand made leather vest, and connected via leather snaps, so i can remove the armor pieces.

Barioth armor is some of the best lookin armor in my opinion, and you did an amazing job! I love how realistic the bones look.

thanks! i really wanted to make my favourite armor as detailed as possible, and have it look as realistic as possible, so the fact you appreciate how the armor really looks like bone? huge compliment!

No problem! I speak the truth though. You don't see too many MH cosplayers with bone detail like that! It really makes yours stand out and adds a whole element of realism to it. C: Trust me it's way better than the MH cosplay I just finished the other day.

the thing about detail and costumes that i go by, is that if i don't like something? i remake it, i try my hardest to never settle for something if i feel i can do better. 
its like XP in an RPG, i'm crafting this thing, right? the first one didn't come out so great, but the more you make, the better they become as you level up. 

practise and experimentation. sometimes you have to fail a few times to get it just right.

Trail and error is a great way to get better at something. I like the way you used RPGs as an example, well spoken! XD 
I'm great at making props like weapons and such but I still need more experience considering sewing and such. I really like how my Guild Bard cosplay came out but I know I probably can put allot more work into it.

i used a lot of leather, real horse hair, apoxie sculpt and pvc board for my costume, 
you can actually find my build journal (pretty much a tutorial in everything but name) by googling "therpf barioth armor"  and hitting the first link.

Nice costume. Dont see too many Monster Hunter cosplay here in Orlando. Turned out great. I guess you like Evasion+2?
Also, is that a Kraken Club? Trying to Zerg Deviljho with Souleater/Bloodweapon?
