The creatives at Fractal Studio can bring animated characters to life like no other group I’ve seen. We noticed their work a few years ago when they made costumes inspired by the characters of Star Wars Rebels. They recently showed off a new cosplay from Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers, and I hope it’s only the beginning of a series of costumes from the cartoon. Their take on Gadget Hackwrench is top notch. Like their other builds, it’s made from fiberglass, polyester resin, and foam.
