Cosplay masks, helmets, and full costumes are gathered here. We make our costumes from a wide range of materials with the ultimate goal of capturing the silhouette of the character. If we’re making armor and weapons quickly, we use foam, which is the most used material in our shop. If we need several copies of a piece, or need something extra clean, we mold and cast durable plastic copies. We even 3D print some pieces! Costumes become mixed media projects of awesomeness.
Britt picks up some clothes and accessories from a thrift store and modifies parts to match the Star Wars universe. Altering second-hand store items is super useful for cosplay!
The EVA foam Star Wars bracer is crafted and it’s time for paint! Britt uses Acrylic Paints to add metallic and paint-chipped layers to the gauntlet. Plus, she prints some Aurebesh text for the plastic screen display.
Britt is designing her own Smuggler-type Star Wars universe character. One of the arms will have a bracer with fun button-type attachments and a guide light. Using only a scrap of EVA foam floor mat, Britt cuts out all the pieces for the gauntlet design, then adds a flashlight and straps.
It’s Commander Holly Conrad’s Helmet! Britt shows you how she 3D models, prints, assembles, and paints the helmet. Plus, vacuum-forms the visor!
In this first of three videos, Bill talks you through the process of making your very own Steel Armor costume from Skyrim.
Britt shows how she made the Fallout 4 Assaultron headpiece and how all the armor is assembled and attached to the undersuit.
Britt from Punished Props seals and paints her Fallout 4 Assaultron armor and undersuit. The armor is sealed with latex, then painted with oil paints. The bodysuit is airbrushed with Createx airbrush paints and detailed with fabric markers.
Bill gives you a behind the scenes look into one of his favorite costumes: the Defender armor from Mass Effect 3. Check out how he makes some little repairs and how it’s worn!
Bill from Punished Props runs around San Diego Comic Con in his Mechanist Costume from Fallout 4.
Mechanist shenanigans. See you at Comic Con!
After several attempts, Britt finally settles on a foam build that works for the Fallout 4 Assaultron’s hands. In this live stream, Britt uses Inkscape to import her final finger template to the laser cutter and shows the whole cutting process.
Britt figures out the bicep and forearm pieces for her Fallout 4 Assaultron Cosplay. She also shows how she made the back antenna and shoulders out of foam.
