Tiny Tina appears in Borderlands 2 and in the Pre-Sequel, and the teen is volatile and unstable — to say the least. She’s the latest Borderlands character cosplayed by the cosplay team Labinnak, Mangoloo, and Shirtless Mike, known as LMcosplays. Mangoloo stepped into the shoes of Tiny Tina, and she even crafted them. She says:
Yes I have an old pair of shoes that I am covering, painting and cel shading so it looks like the actual shoe in-game! And definitely will have photos up of it as soon as I have it done. I only have the one shoe left, one bag, and a dagger to make and Tina is completely done.
You can see pictures of the shoe progress below.
As you can see in the top photo, Tiny Tina’s clothes are all cel shaded to match the game and Mangoloo shared some tips about not making the fabric too stiff to move in with all the paint:
It’s a bit stiff in some spots (more stiff in the places where I cel-shaded with the acrylic paint pen). Although I watered down my acrylics so the rest of the fabric isn’t that stiff. As for the cel-shaded parts.. I purposely made it a little stiff since I noticed that it helps the fabric fold in a way that the lines make sense. Although if you don’t want stiffness then I recommend mixing the acrylic paint with a fabric medium.

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
