Deathwing Jaw Armor Tutorial by OrangeMoose Deathwing Jaw Armor Tutorial by OrangeMoose
Here is a little tutorial that can be applied to many different costume props using pepakura and paper mache. It's fun, easy and inexpensive! This is the method I used to create an "adamantium" jaw for my husband's Deathwing costume. Use this tutorial to create your own or apply it to other projects! Happy crafting!

For information on using Pepakura, watch this helpful video [link]

For an overview of the whole costume, click [link]

I am so grateful for this tutorial/information on the viewers and how to. I find this stuff as inspiring as it is informative. One question though. To what scale is the jaw loaded as in peparuka? I tested it myself and it has come out small scale like mini jaw prints.

I'm so grateful you put this up though! I'm going to make an entire steampunk inspired costume from this! hehehe shoulderpads in wow here I come.

I am glad my tutorial is helping you! And, yes, the scale is way off. I have no idea what the default is for importing WoW models, but I had to print a few test pieces until I got it to the size I wanted. Please link me your costume when you are done. I would love to see it! =)

Okay. I'll just have to estimate a 10% for the teeth and then apply that percentage to the rest.

I'll definitely have to give youa link/credit for it. otherwise I'd be stuck trying to much about with paper mache.

I'm almost done with a plywood gun as well that you may like. Gotta drill bits into it :P

I am excited to see how it turns out. I also want so see how it might be applied to larger prop pieces, like shoulders. I know people do pepakura/resin, but I'd be interested in knowing how a large-scale pepakura/foam/paperclay prop holds up.

I'll be giving a mage shoulder tier a go, the one with the moving cog/gear wheels. I figure if I buy some desk fans and use the batteries in those with some lightwieght cogs I could get spinning effect XD
