The 100 Cosplay: How To Fit In With The Ice Nation Army

Once again the wonderful Wendy Biscuit has given us a tutorial about how to Cosplay the Ice Nation army…you know, like Bellamy did in the second episode of this new season.

First, a trip to the nearest Army Surplus store for regular digi camo BDU’s like these:

Then you’ll need a natural sea sponge and artists loft acrylic paint like these:

Sponge paint black acrylic paint onto the digi camo BDU’s.

Make sure to achieve a nice even mottled base with one layer of black acrylic, one layer of raw umber like seen here:

The final step to this part of the cosplay is titanium white acrylic which adds a snow kissed element to the outfit.


When the camos are completed, they should look something like this:

Ice Nation

Now, the mask. When completed, it should look like this:

Ice Nation Mask

First, gather the items you want to use to create your mask. Any recyclables will do.  Then add textured spray paint like so:

Then add blood and guts using the recipe that was featured in the previous article about The 100 Cosplay.

Finally, when all the pieces are dried and put together, the mask should look something like this one that Wendy’s son is wearing:

Combine the mask and the camos and voila! Scary Ice Nation army warrior!
