The Edward Scissorhands costume is relatively simple except for one component: the hands. And those are complicated enough to make the whole endeavor complicated. Ryan Wells tackled them though and built them from regular Worbla, styrene plastic (he sandwiched together several layers of .03 thick styrene), scrap leather, and tool handles. He also used black Worbla:
I used the black Worbla to sculpt the handles on the blades. The less sticky properties of the new stuff made it easier to build on the styrene without attaching itself to it. These will be easier to paint separately without masking the chrome blades.
He even sculpted the bolts for the piece from black Worbla. Ryan noted the black Worbla is stronger than the original Worbla so it allows for more manipulation without bending and tearing.

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
