Winter Soldier and Aang, made and worn by me, at Melbnova.

For anyone interested in Winter Soldier’s cybernetic arm construction, this is the basic process I used. I really wanted a rigid arm, but didn’t have the time, resources or skills to do a full arm mould, sculpt and rubber/latex cast, so I used Worbla. The arm is in two parts, plus the glove.

Because I don’t share Bucky’s awesome physique I built a foam muscle suit (just the arms). This is what I used to mould the Worbla over. Once moulded I went over with body filler, primed and then applied several coats of spray putty so everything is nice and smooth. I had originally planned to etch in the detailing but due to concerns about the putty layers lifting I resorted to masking off instead; it was the night before the con and by this stage there were few options. It worked well in any case. The shoulder, elbow and back of the hand have silver spandex attached to the sleeve of the undersuit to allow for movement. The fingers are also worbla, moulded over a cotton glove. I applied some body filler and sanded smooth.

Due to time I didn’t get to attach a strap to hold the shoulder in place. The arm slips over the muscle suit and stays in place (I can remove it); it does slide down a little, but not too much, though I will add a strap to minimise the amount the shoulder lifts and to anchor it better (but still allow for movement).

I hope this is useful, and feel free to hit me up with any questions :)
