Anubis Cosplay is Lookin’ Sharp!

Martina Hugentobler (Facebook: @polygonForgeCosplay, Instagram: @polygon_forge) makes the low-fidelity polygonal aesthetic of pepakura (paper craft) into an asset with this glimmering Anubis costume.

Inspired by a resin kit designed by Hui Zou Art and produced by R-one Studio, a low-poly model was constructed in Blender. The finished Anubis armor is assembled from pieces of Sintra (foamed PVC) — a light and strong type of sheet plastic — then covered with reflective vinyl and accented with a few solid cast resin bits.

Some of Polygon Forge’s other projects (and Anubis in the prototype stage) used straight-up paper craft methods…an approachable and relatively inexpensive way of constructing armor and cosplay items (often brushing on a layer of epoxy resin for strength). Pepakura cosplayers frequently then pour money and time into lots of Bondo filler and sanding to cover for the technique’s boxy nature. So it’s exciting to see this instead being made a desirable stylistic choice.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
