This Hyrule Warriors Ganondorf Cosplay Isn’t Villainous
Cosplayer KataMarija Creations took on her biggest project yet when she decided to make a Hyrule Warriors Ganondorf costume. The self-taught costume and prop maker’s take on the character is striking. She started like most cosplayers start with armor builds by using card stock and construction paper to make the patterns for the armor pieces. When every piece was right, she turned to foam to make the base of the armor. Then, she covered the foam with Worbla. She folded the Worbla over edges rather than using the sandwich method because it uses less material. She says:
Just use your handy heat gun and start melting and forming, and burning your fingers, and sculpting your details! Not shown here, but I like to use scissor edges or clay sculpting tools to push the worbla as close as possible to the foam edging!
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
