Well, there it is. Vinnie's Dirge of Cerberus claw.
This baby is made of craft foam, pipe cleaner, tape, and clay, with gold spray paint.
The claws and little finger plates took 5 hours to sculpt and fashion with a knife, plus 15 minutes to bake. The hand plate was relatively easy to make as well.
The gauntlet was tricky as well, being made of foam and layered with tape, to make painting easier.
