By the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth, It’s Doctor Strange Cosplay
Canvas Cosplay recently took home top marks at the Wizard World Richmond convention for his Doctor Strange costume. It’s no wonder given the intense amount of work he poured into crafting the costume inspired by the upcoming Marvel film. He started by studying the photos of Benedict Cumberbatch in costume on set and sketched the basic outline of the tunic and then scaled it to match his proportions. He carefully examined the fabric types too and shopped accordingly. I’ve included photos showing the swatches of fabrics Canvas Cosplay used for the tunic, robe, and cape; see them below — the different textures make an impact on the finished costume. It includes navy stretch cotton, satin, denim in various colors, rope trim, vinyl, faux suede, and more.
Be sure to read the thorough and extensive tutorial here. Even if you’re not making this exact costume, it’s a helpful read to learn about reference, design, and assembly.
