Elden Ring, the newest game developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco, has arrived and gamers already can’t get enough of the game. Made by the same creator as Dark Souls, Hidetaka Miyazaki, and in collaboration with George R.R. Martin, the game is set around a breathtaking fantasy realm where your character is on a quest to become the Elden Lord.
The game has already been receiving massive acclaim from popular gaming sites such as IGN, GameInformer, and VG247. Now, even cosplayers are sharing their hype for the game.
Cosplayer and prop maker Steven K Smith (@SKSProps) was hired by Bandai to make a full Bloody Wolf cosplay armor set from the game with a very quick turnaround. The cosplay was completely hand-sculpted with foam and other fabric materials to make it look like the armor had stepped directly off the screen and into the real world. Steven finished the cosplay in 35 days with over 300 hours working on the costume.
Here’s what I’ve been doing for the past month of social media silence. I was hired to make a full Bloody Wolf cosplay armor set, plus attend several Bandai / Fromsoftware events, for the launch of Elden Ring!!! I also want to give a shout out to @AshenWarriorPro for his help pic.twitter.com/7823GDWsIN— Steven K Smith (@SKSProps) February 25, 2022
Steven attended several Bandai and FromSoftware events across the state of California to help promote the launch of Elden Ring. The Twitter posts by both GameStop and Steve himself certainly show off the detailing and hard work put into the cosplay. From the intricate hand sculpting on the pauldrons and chestplate to the massive longsword and shield, Steven definitely showed off his skills for this armor.
Flying back home after completing several @ELDENRING @BandaiNamcoUS @GameStop and @Fromsoft_US gigs in Cali. Soon I’ll start posting behind the scenes pics @AshenWarriorPro and I took of how the Bloody Wolf armor was created. #eldenring #ELDEN_RING #FromSoftware #BandaiNamco pic.twitter.com/PEEF4G4f5c— Steven K Smith (@SKSProps) February 28, 2022
The prop maker also stated on his Twitter that he will have more behind-the-scenes photos of how the Bloody Wolf armor was created, and we cannot wait to see more! To follow Steven and his work, be sure to check him out on his Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and official website.
