Creepy Soul Bender Costume

soul bender 1

It’s quite common to see cosplayers base their looks on existing characters, but some designers and artists focus on making original designs. That’s what Brian Cargile of Two Horns United does. He makes one of a kind props, armor sets, helmets, you name it. Sometimes he goes back and redoes work, too, and that’s what happened with this Soul Bender ensemble. He made this creature suit in 2013, but it was rushed and he wasn’t one hundred percent happy with it. He says:

It got put away in a closet. Well a few months ago someone inquired about it and wondered if they could still buy it. Hesitant, I told her it was not good enough to be sold, but I had an idea and a bit of spare time so I proposed that I repaint/redo/finish it the way I originally envisioned before shipping it out.

The revamp looks breathtaking. And let this serve as a lesson: if you’re scratching your head about what costume to do next, look at your existing wardrobe. You might find something to touch up, build upon, or redo entirely.
