Lady Sif is a shield maiden of Asgard so a shield is a key part of her costume. Instructables user Amorrah used Sif’s shield from Thor: The Dark World as a reference and build the shield for her cosplay from foam board and craft foam. She started by sketching the outlines of the shield onto paper and transferring both of them (a larger outer shield and smaller inner shield) onto foam board. You can sand the edges of the foam board after you cut the shields out to smooth them. Cut the Celtic-esque details for Sif’s shield from craft foam:
Lay the design detail sketched banner paper, over a section of craft foam.
Use an exact-o knife to puncture dots on the craft foam, much like carving a pumpkin, following the design lines.
This allows the overall design is captured.
Remove now-dotted banner paper from the foam layer.
Go over the dots again with the exact-o knife, using regular slicing techniques and cut out the detailing.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
