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 work on a cosplay for Krel from Netflix’s series “3Below”. What I’m having trouble with is figuring out his hair since 1. It glows and 2. It’s not exactly hair strands, it kinda looks like a plastic crystal tbh. I was hoping you guys could give me some advice on what I could do?

Hi, I need some advice on my Alessi (anime version) cosplay from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. I bought some silver Christmas ornaments at a discount price, which turned out to be glass ornaments. I was wondering how can I make the glass ornaments shatter-proof? For example, should I wrap them up in a material or put some type of coating on them? Also, what kind of string would be best for holding up the ornaments?

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?
