What One Cosplayer Did to Get Yondu’s Jacket Just Right
Cosplayers sometimes go to extreme, tedious lengths to ensure a costume is precise and matches its inspiration. Since costume designers for television and film don’t necessarily use off the rack fabric, it can mean modification and taking a Frankenstein-like approach to replicating materials. That’s what Dragon Workshop did for their Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Yondu cosplay. They spent over 20 hours getting the foil-print fabric right and then additional time sewing it all together.
One of the question we’ve got asked very often, is: How #yondu ’s jacket is done and where we bought that fabric. So here is a small overview of the details! ? First of all: That special fabric was not simply bought somewhere, it’s a special foil-print. A printing shop made that printed foils with that “0“ pattern according to our expectation and then Tina had to “clean“ that foils. All parts that shouldn’t get printed, had to be removed. That took about 20 hours. After that the foils got finally printed to the fabric (it’s a common cotton fabric) and than at last everything was ready for sewing.

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
