Complete newbie

Hey everyone!

I am completely new to making cosplay and Worbla! I found one of Kamui cosplays books on cosplay armour making in the Vic Uni book store two weeks ago (and since watched almost all her videos on youtube!) and that was the first time I'd ever seen Worbla. I wanted to try working with it, got my first batch of deco art in the mail on thursday. Can say its one of the most fun materials i've played with so far, so I'm looking forward to learning how to use it more skillfully. Decided to make a crown for the first time using deco art. No idea what I'm doing or any plan for it but i'm enjoying it so far.

 

So look forward to learning new tricks and getting inspired,

 

Happy crafting! :)

Awesome! Kamui is one of the best resources out there, for worbla and general building tips and tricks. Welcome! :D

Kamui is so good! Lightning Cosplay is another German artist who has a bunch of videos and tutorials online, I recommend checking her out as well for lots of worbla tips.

    I play a half-elf character in DnD (dungeons and dragons) This last part of the campaign she aquired a dagger.... so I decided to make it real.... made with a cardboard and mini $2shop dagger, smaller than the final piece, as a base.... with worbla overtop to make it bigger and added a jem and brown vinyal on the handle. I used Worblas black art and Moulding paste to smooth the blade a bit... I did make it fast - its my first official cosplay weapon made with worbla. If i spent more time on it it would have been a bit more smoother etc. but as a quick cosplay piece this does the job. Here is my character: Yes I cosplay her too! original outfit (travel/adventure) Top, pouch and belt made by me... with and without fur. wearing her monk outfit... yes i made the ears too.... with polymerclay The "robe" is an authentic sari aquired when I went to india in 1993. with her dress on (really its Lagerthas dress) but it worked well with my half-elf asthetic. he he. -yes, I made the dress. well off I go.... waiting for the 6 vials of healing potion to arrive with the potion pouch - this portal takes a while.... maybe there are other cosmic powers at play here? Maybe theres a customs between worlds too? agggghhh! lol

    I have made a ring holder, out of my worbla scraps, for all my cosplay and "normal" rings. whatever "normal" is these days... lol yes its rough but I like it that way... and i really cant be bothered tidying it up by putting fabric over the top at the moment but probably will at a later date. thanks for looking.

    my hubby broke his belt buckle (he must be superman) so i made my sons Reaper belt with it adding black worbla parts, painted in silver, so the belt slides behind and in the ”buckles” and hold really well.
