Shuka is part of a group cosplay which is based on the designs of Fyre-Dragon.
The armor is made of EVA foam and Worbla’s Finest Art and houses around 30 LED strips, to get the effect of flowing lava.
To get this effect, the LEDs are controlled by an Arduino Due, which is situated in the back plate of the armor.
The weapon is inspired by the japanese Naginata and can be detached, to have a sword and a staff. Since Shuka is a master of weapons he can handle any weapon, he gets his hands on.
