Beverly Downen and Heather Robb of Epoch Echo Cosworx have joined forces to offer patterns for the cosplay community, and Heather, a.k.a. HarBeastie, has added Valkyrie to their arsenal. HarBeastie designed the costume for the character from Thor: Ragnarok and made every aspect by hand. After doing mock-up work to get the bodysuit just right, she made it from fabric to match the film. She had to add some details by hand for it to be more precise. She explains:
I needed to fabricate some of this fabric in order to get the hex pattern. I accomplished this by using a cricut to precision cut sheets of hex outline design in heat transfer vinyl.
The hexes turned out a little whiter than I’d like so I’ll be air brushing fabric paint to weather and grubby it up a little.
