Reaper of Souls

"No one can stop death..."
Malthael was absolutely a love-at-first-sight costume for me. When the trailer was released for Reaper of Souls I immediately began preparation and planning for this build. The armor is made using the "sandwich" method of 2mm foam and Worbla. The hood was free-hand embroidered on a sewing machine.
Yes, my husband is gigantic and everyone kept asking if he was on stilts. He is so intimidating in this costume and I love it.

Malthael's weapons were very hard and took me three attempts to get them the right size, shape and material.
Eventually I made an EVA foam structure, shaped and sanded that and then covered it in worbla, later adding hot glue and worbla details.
