I’m making a Big Barda cosplay (from the DC comics) and most of the arm/leg/midriff area is covered in blue scaled material, whether it’s got depth or is just a print differs based on the artist. I want to give it some kind of detailed texturing like making foam scale mail, or perhaps quilting a scale pattern? although I still feel like that might feel a bit flat for my tastes. However it covers high movement areas (elbows/knees/waist) do you have any ideas of flexible texturing to give it depth

Hi! I’m trying to make Shion (from That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime) and I’m having trouble with the horn. It’s pretty large and I’m not exactly sure what materials to make it out of, and also how to attach it to my head. I’ve seen some sellers use clips, however I want to make it more realistic than that. I’m also having trouble with her green shirt under her blazer. It doesn’t cover any of her chest so I’m not sure how that would work. Thanks a bunch in advance!
