Varian Update - Knee and Shoulder Harness

Varian's shoulder armor pieces are relatively light for their size, but still bulky and heavier than many such costume pieces. I struggled with the idea about how best to secure them so they are wearable, but not to confining. And I didn't want them to just fall off either. So I designed a shoulder harness using scrap leather. The shoulder pads will connect to the harness and the armor breastplate will be worn over the harness. The fur should hide this all from sight.

I finished scuplting the second lion knee armor piece. I tried something different by filling the gaps with the paper-mache paste I used for the inside of the shoulder pieces. Hopefully it won't take to long to dry.
