The comic Rat Queens by writer Kurtis J. Wiebe and artists Roc Upchurch and Stjepan Šejić focuses on a group of female adventures. They’re raucous, skilled, persistent, and hilarious. Cosplayer Meagan Marie joined a Rat Queens cosplay group for Big Wow Comicfest last month as Hannah. Look how fantastic their costumes are! She was joined by Christina Dark Cosplay, Tinybully, and Super Hero Resin.
Meagan made the Hannah costume with a variety of materials including Worbla, a white cotton suit she modified and dyed, gold vinyl, a pink bra, Sintra, and EVA foam. She patterned Hannah’s belt buckler herself:
Tonight I patterned the belt buckle on paper and transferred to Worbla. I heated four squares of Worbla in the oven at a low temp (115) to bond them evenly together. Don’t forget the wax paper if you try this! Heating this way and cutting while still warm with a sharp knife makes the edges super smooth. I’ll use this to make a mold and cold cast to look like metal!
