Philip Odango of Canvas Cosplay always impresses me with his work whether he’s channeling Doctor Strange or Lu Bu. But his most recent costume might be my favorite: he’s the King of the Sea, Aquaman. He drew inspiration for his costume from the Justice League film. I think that design is more muted and more regal, maybe, than what’s depicted in comics.
As usual, Odango made the cosplay by hand — you can see a collage of work in progress photos below. He told Adafruit about his materials; he used “EVA foam, faux leather, acrylic paint” and sewed the scales together with a “Singer Sewing Company Featherweight machine.”
If you’re attending C2E2 in Chicago from April 6-April 8, you might see Odango in his Arthur Curry/Aquaman costume.
