Jax Briggs
Mortal Kombat

Cosplayer: WarriorTeddy

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

6th July 2011: Arms completed Following some heavenly advice from Lord Raiden, I stuck with craft foam for the forearms and applied paper mache over it. I then sprayed it and it came out quite well!!
I just have to work on my belt and I'm set for Saturday. Hurray!!

4th July 2011: Bionic Arms The biceps turned out better than expected .... the forearms not so much. I used craft foam for the forearms but they seems to be out of sync with the rest of the arm. I'll try out leather on the forearms as it has a nicer finish to it...

27th June 2011: Triceps added Have now added a second set of panels to the under armour. This is beginning to look like something from a bad 80s Sci-fi Tv show. lol.
Next up biceps ...

25th June 2011: Shoulder Panels I've cut a cheap football into two halves, sprayed them and trimmed each to fit my shoulders. (Not yet sure what I'll do about the ridges in the football though)

It'll be interesting how you choose to go about making the arms here.

I suggest you start a thread in General Costume chat and Critique about the arms. I'd love to see progression and offer ideas.

Nice solution to the bionic arms.

If you simply paper mache the craft foam and then spray paint it silver then it should have the same finish. hope that helps x.

Nice to see it all worked out for you. You've learned a lot in the process which is good.

Are you looking to hold on to this character as a work in progress? It might be worthwhile as there aren't that many Jaxs out there.

WarriorTeddy avatar

WarriorTeddy - 2nd August 2011
Yeah, I've now learnt so much =) thanks again for your help with the planning.
You're right, I will hang on to it and see if I can improve the design.
