Sometimes I see costumes so creative I have to stop and give them recognition. Case in point: This Attila costume by Redditor Phantom_Scarecrow. The character Attila appears in Disney’s Tangled as a patron of The Snuggly Duckling. During the song “I’ve Got a Dream,” we learn his dream is baking cupcakes. His cupcakes “are sublime.” He might look like a thug, but he has a baker’s touch — he even has a cupcake tattoo. Phantom_Scarecrow made the Attila costume for Tekko in Pittsburgh and carried around a pan of cupcakes. He even has a tattoo to match Attila’s!
Steel helmet. Real chain mail. 3d printed belt buckle, studs, harness ring, and horns. I made everything except the cupcake tray and oven mitts.
This is a great example of how fun it can be to pull cosplay inspiration from characters who aren’t necessarily front and center.
