Eliza Eldredge, a.k.a. Eldritch Arts, specializes in making screen accurate costumes and props on commission. She does stellar, detailed work. Case in point? She crafted an incredible Ant-Man costume for Rick Louis. It’s remarkably similar to the outfit worn by Paul Rudd in the film. She went so far as to make a wooden frame in order to properly sew the stretch knit fabric and faux leather together and even stamped the leather with a tool she had specially made for the project in order to get the texture exactly right. She has tons of patience.
She said the following about some of the hardware used:
If metal hardware is too expensive, or not shaped or sized quite right for you, try making your own! I got two pieces to use as molds, and now I am making the rest in Worbla, making sure the threads are consistent sizes, but shaping the outside to be as screen accurate as possible. This is for a very specific piece that connects Ant Man’s helmet to his suit.
