Using Auto Body Vinyl Wrap in Cosplay

auto wrap for cosplay metallics_header

A cosplay challenge that comes up regularly is how to make non-metallic surfaces look like metal. There’s always paint or covering foam with metallic spandex, but it’s hard to get a mirror finish that looks exactly like metal. Designer Kay Pike recently shared an idea that makes perfect sense though: auto body vinyl wrap. The material is incredibly shiny, and since it’s thin, the vinyl wrap can be applied to any surface. It works on fabric, thermal plastics, clay, etc. You only need the vinyl car wrap (which comes in a wide variety of colors), scissors, and a heat gun to shape the wrap around whatever you want to look metallic.

See more information about using the material on Facebook.
