Five Ways to Use a Whisk in Cosplay

Time to look around your house, get inspired by everyday objects, and make costumes! Today, I’ve chosen to focus on whisks – as in the kind you use to make scrambled eggs. The various shapes of whisks can be used in Doctor Who costumes and work perfectly for accessories. However, I recommend only grabbing a whisk for cosplay if you have back-ups in your kitchen. If you have those duplicates, get them cleaned up and consider using it for these purposes:


Dalek weapon – Daleks have two attachments: one looks like a plunger, and the other resembles a whisk. Whether you’re creating a full Dalek costume or just a dress interpretation, grabbing a whisk to add onto the costume is easy. In fact, if you only carried the kitchen tool and a plunger, any Whovian would recognize the costume immediately – great last minute cosplay solution. A French whisk looks best, but a balloon whisk would work in a pinch.

Tiara – The curling shapes and spirals could fit right into the centerpiece of a tiara. A spiral whisk is especially suited to the task. Use a sturdy wire cutter or power tool to cut off the handle and stretch and paint the piece as necessary. You can use E-6000 or thinner wire to attach the new component to an existing tiara.

Baking-themed costume – The obvious choice for a whisk is a baking-related costume. You could dress as Julia Child, the Swedish chef from The Muppet Show, or an appliance. Have you seen anyone else dress like a KitchenAid mixer? You could even be a cake mix. Get creative.

Ball whisk

Staff – Cosplaying as a wizard or other character that uses a staff? Consider using a coil or ball whisk to top it. The handles could be inserted into the top of an existing staff or otherwise built in. You can paint a ball whisk and even add LEDs or EL wire to the structure to make it look magical. Also, the whisk can serve as a base to add clay or other embellishments.

Souffle girl – Yes, another Doctor Who costume! When Clara Oswald first appears, she’s attempting to make a perfect souffle. She has a snazzy red dress, and her utility belt features a whisk. Her costume is simple enough that you could probably pull it out of your closet in no time.
