Destiny Cosplay Progress


So, after 5 years, I’m finally working on a Destiny cosplay. My first attempt at forming the helmet (on right) left me a bit disheartened. It was lopsided and the lines weren’t very clean. So, I decided to spend another three hours making another helmet (on left). The below pictures are where I’m at with the new helmet. I’m much more pleased with this one. I still have a lot to do, but the ground work is laid. This is my first foam helmet project (I’ve made masks before but never a full helmet)and it really goes to show that costume-making is a long process filled with many failures. Overcoming and learning from these failures only makes you a better costume-maker.

At some point, I’ll be throwing a tutorial up on how to make a helmet out of EVA foam. Stay tuned

When my father wasn't looking, I used to sneak into the attic to read his old comic books. After being regaled by spandex-clad superheroes at a young age, it's not a wonder I became such a huge nerd. From comics, to movies, to video games, to cartoons, my life has only been bettered by nerd culture and the many people I've met along the way who've shared my obsessions. My first plunge into cosplaying was when I was 18. I went to an anime convention and my costume was absolutely horrible. But, despite this, I loved the atmosphere and the people, so I kept making costumes. My love of cosplaying has only increased, so I'm here to get people interested in costume-making and give as much advice as I can.
