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 working on ‘refurbishing’ my first cosplay, Kurumi Tokisaki from Date a Live. Everything’s going well, aside from the skirt. When I first wore it, I was wearing nothing but the skirt. So the skirt was just kinda pathetically ‘lying’ down. I hoped a hoop skirt would fix this, and it kinda does, but it doesn’t have the same wavy effect as Kurumi’s skirt does in the anime. A regular hoop skirt makes it look like a ballgown. Any idea for achieving this wavy/floaty effect? Thanks!

So I’m cosplaying hawks from mha and he has two three foot long feather swords. I made a pattern for how I want it to look and I have it cut out on 1/4 inch eva foam, but they’re floppy and I need them to hold their shape more. I want to put something rigid down the feather shaft but I don’t know what. I need it to be thick so I can hold it comfortably and be smooth and shiny. I was thinking 3D printing but I have never done that before. Any ideas on how to get that effect?
