I’m back after a long hiatus where I spent way too long with my nose buried in textbooks.
With the Florida RennFest around the corner I wanted to attempt to make some Steampunk themed cosplay items for the Time Travelers weekend. After a quick search on YouTube I found a great tutorial by Lost Wax. I also visited his site and proceeded to purchase every steampunk pattern he had because they were amazing!
Having never worked with craft foam to this degree, it took me a few attempts to get the hang of it. I think however the final products are “cosplay” quality and should be good enough for a day at the fair. I used acrylic paints to get a faux leather effect and the polymer clay components are the octopus and goggle lenses. Not a bad come back project I think.
