An important lesson to learn if you’re a cosplayer: Never throw anything away. You shouldn’t become a hoarder, but if you have scraps of Worbla or foam or anything, you should designate a place to store them. Redditor funkynuggets1990 did that and because of it, they were able to make a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Gold Ranger cosplay for practically zero dollars. They said:
I have a lot of scrap foam lying around this was basically a matter of sticking it all together into one big sheet then using it like normal foam. I have a pile of gold lycra sitting around left over from work so I used that to skin it.
They’re going to finish the helmet by sanding down the seams and filling the gaps with silicone.
