On Saturday, August 13, 2022 we will be working on the Adafruit Customer Support Forums. If you visit over the weekend and things are not complete yet, please check back later, https://adafruit.com/forumupdates
I see so many costumes based on characters from pop culture that I forget many cosplayers work on developing original designs. Lightning Cosplay and her friend did just that with their warrior faun costumes. It all started with a sketch, and she made everything from the hooves to the horns. The hooves started with what looks like a pair of high heel boots stripped of the heels. Clay was added around and under the top of the shoe to form the hoove part and then molded.
She made patterns for each armor piece, and even though it’s a tedious process, she says it’s necessary to create perfect fitting armor. She used Worbla for the armor and even used Worbla’s Deco Art to make clear claws for the faun costume.
