Cosplayer Paperwitch crafted and debuted a warrior take on the Wonder Woman costume earlier this year. The design isn’t quite like any Wonder Woman cosplay I’ve seen before. She used Worbla to craft the armor and embossed it with a blunt tool to add the details. The cloth parts of the costume were made from rexine, a faux leather fabric — it’s often used for bookbinding. She made the base of the shield from thin plywood, but she took an unique approach to the center of the shield. She explained:
Upcycled an awards plate and mounted it on a plywood base for the shield. I made one paper star, filled it with hot glue (I had nothing else at that point) and used it as a mould to cast the remaining out of worbla.
You can see a photo of the shield below, as well as a picture of of a cleaning tool that she turned into Wonder Woman’s sword.
