Mnamna has the cosplay bug. He built a complex Ronan the Accuser ensemble in 2015 and enjoyed it enough that he decided to level up and try something that seems even harder: a Thanos costume. He knew how to use EVA foam to make the armor and also Worbla, but he had to learn new skills to make the mask and Infinity Gauntlet. He finished the project in time for the recent C2E2 and pictures from the event show him looking perfectly smug as the character.
He documented the build with photos on Facebook. He started by making a mold of his face with Alginate and sculpted the Thanos mask on top of it. He used a molding plaster and had to make a couple of prototypes to get it right. The other tricky part looks like the Infinity Gauntlet; he constructed it from many pieces of Worbla and wired the inside with LEDs to make it glow.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
