I come across new costume mash-ups all the time, and I like seeing the creativity. Cosplayer Alkali Layke decided to combine Boba Fett and Wonder Woman to make a striking Wonder Fett ensemble. She started with a paper pattern from The Dented Helmet and transferred it onto a foam mat. The foam was a gym mat from a local big box store. She transferred the foam templates to Worbla to ensure the armor would be sturdy.
After applying two coats of primer, Alkali used Krylon spray paint in metallic gold and blue shimmer. She weathered the gold pieces of armor with black acrylic paint (you get it in all the cracks by piling it on and rubbing away with a paper towel — you can apply thin washes of paint by watering down the acrylics).
You can see a few in progress photos below and more at Facebook.
