My wife and I recently finished 2 Eldar Warlocks. A friend and I wore them to the Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle.
As much as I want some space marine armor, we felt the Imperials we've seen around needed some sort of adversary. I've always loved the Eldar asthetic and we felt the look meshed with our skills so thats what we decided to do.
We settled on the Biel-Tan primarily because I wanted to paint with some green. Altho for a period we almost went Sam-Hain for a nice red / gold color scheme. Decent green fabrics are tough to find!
We started the project August 2015 and finished April 2016. Probably lost a full month between December and January. Other than that, it's been a pretty hard steady push for us, especially the past couple of months. So we've probably put a good 6 months into these two costumes as we missed most of December and January.
My wife really went to town on adding runes to the gowns. The pictures don't show the gloves real well, but she "runed" those out as well. She was a sewing servitor, Seamstress Supreme!
The helmet was a fiberglass "sculpt". The initial sword was a foam and plastic card creation. The chest piece was fiberglass over a duct tape body form. Everything was molded and cast so we could make duplicates.
The chest pieces don't fit as well as I would have liked, but I'm mostly happy with the look. The swords are stupidly heavy as a result of deciding to add lights after the molding was done. I probably could have done things a little smarter. Maybe next time!
Most of the pictures are by us, except for the two pictures with the Autodesk / Pixlr backdrop. They were taking cosplay pictures at Emerald City and were great to work with.
Thanks for looking! Thoughts, feedback, criticism and questions are always welcome!
