Part 3: Adjutant shoulder armor (StarCraft 2)

Chrisx Design recently shared with us her Adjunct costume from StarCraft 2. Not only is the costume itself stunning, but she also shared with us tutorials on how she made it!

The shoulder armor

Not the biggest piece, but here it is. The shoulder armor for my Adjutant.

Shoulders: again this is worbla wrapped around a cardboard base, and I shaped the top over an easter egg I had laying around.

The shoulders are attached to the chest armor with this Velcro solution and D-rings, keeping both the chest, back and arms together.
This piece actually holds the chest and back armor together over the shoulders as well, so the shoulder armor won’t slide down because it is then attached to the upper body armor.
