Worbla is great for armor pieces that need to be strong :) I love to work with it! And for the attachments for for example a breastplate, I like to use D-rings and attach (fake leather or elastic) belts to them. There is this really strong type of Worbla with a mesh fabric on one side that is called Worbla's Meshed Art. This is a very strong material and also really sticky. That's why I love to use if to make my attachments on my Worbla armor pieces!

Worbla is from Cast4Art and in the Netherlands you can get it at CosplayClues

My convention season is over for this year!
Do you still go to conventions in 2018? If you ever want to see me at a convention near you (no matter where on the world) just ask the convention organizers to invite me there :D I'd love to meet you!

And don't think that because my convention season is over, I will just sit on my butt and don't do anything ;) I will of course be creating costumes, writing E-books, making videos and of course make my hats and hoodies!

Horizon Zero Dawn, one of my absolute favorite games! What's your favorite game? Do you have suggestions for someone who loves games like Horizon Zero Dawn, Witcher 3 and Skyrim?

This photo is one of the photos we took in the mountains in Austria. We visited this place before and I just HAD to shoot with Aloy there some day! And a week ago, we did it! This landscape looks so much like the one in the game Horizon Zero Dawn. It was just perfect :D

This photo is one of the images in my 2019 cosplay calendar! You can still get it in the pre-order with 3 free prints if you are quick ;)

Worbla is not only good for making armor but also for details on your costume! Remember the silicone mold I made for my Astrid cosplay? I ended up using it in combination with Worbla's Finest Art to make the spikes for the skirt.

So I just took some Worbla leftovers that I still had. Because Worbla can be reused endlessly you shouldn't throw away your scraps! I heated up the scraps and mushed them together as clay. Then I pressed it into the mold. Silicone can stand a lot of heat so it works great for the warm Worbla! Then it needed to cool down a bit before I could take them out. And then I just repeated it until I had 10 sets of 4 different sized spikes. I also numbered the spikes on the bottom so I could easily sort them later.

Why I chose Worbla for this and not foam? Well, I wanted the spikes to have some weight to them. This would make the skirt fall more 'real' because the spikes resembled metal.

Worbla is from Cast4Art and in the Netherlands you can get it at CosplayClues
