Deathstroke has been in DC Comics for years, but his recent appearance in Arrow seems to have made the character a little more popular. I’m basing this unscientific observation on the fact that I’ve seen more cosplayers dressed like Deathstroke than ever before — cosplayers like Instructables user Shadow of Intent. He made a replica of the costume mostly from foam with a dual color paint. He said:
The build time was about 10 weeks (200 hours) and cost about £60 in parts. Some I’d already purchased for use with my other costumes, like the thermal top, and others I had plenty spare after finishing (glue gun sticks). Other inexpensive items I used but already had were elastic and Velcro, although these are available at a low cost of around £1 a metre.
He said at least 50 hours of the work was spent turning armor sections in 2D nets, measuring the reference images, and drawing them onto foam. You can see a few in-progress pics below.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
