Gonna try to cram in another cosplay before con....

Does anyone have any tips for Chun Li's Alpha bracelet?? I'm looking for something to use for the metal 'studs'...something dome shaped that I could pain silver....any suggestions? Someone recommended the round half of plastic easter egg but I'd like something that could attach a bit more easily to the base....

Any ideas are appreciated!



If you don't find anything too obvious, I can probably 3D print those for you. It's a pretty simple shape that's easy to design and I'm not using my 3D printer at the moment. Or perhaps this? You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Oh these Amazon ones are so good! And cheap too! I cant tell if they're rounded like a true dome or more flattened...its so cheap it's worth it to order and find out ahaha

And that's so sweet of you to offer to 3D print them! Would you happen to live in Arizona ahaha I would prob have to sand them down and stuff right? I've never played with a 3d printer before

You got this!
Ugh worbla and I do not get along at all! Took me forever to figure it out. I wouldn’t be so far behind if my daughter hadn’t decided last minute to do the Winter Soldier too.

Oh yeah. After my... less-than-successful worbla-ing last night, I could see that I would need more. At $88/sheet, it's not cheap but I ordered more anyway... ::)

I bought my daughter this jacket for her Winter Soldier cosplay. It’s synthetic leather & I’m have a terrible time getting it to look weathered. I tried fine grit sandpaper & those green scratch pads. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Nice.  I thought at first she looked like Kylo Ren.  Don't have any advice on the weathering, except that she can change characters.  ;D

Another item off of my to-do list! I just finished updating my 'Dolores Season 1' Westworld costume to 'Dolores Season 2. Of course, it's a little clean, but I don't want to ruin it completely, in case I ever want to go back to he Season 1 version. ;)

Almost done with remaking my Brienne cosplay! Still need to add extra bits of EVA foam for the bottom of the armor, make adjustments to the belt, and style the wig, but other than that, I think I'm good to go! Here's hoping i don't get a heat stroke!



Also just wanted to share this but I'll also be bringing my Tokoyami cosplay since I know some of us here are huge fans of My Hero Academia. If you see me, say hi!
