Hello there! I am new to the forums. I just joined today and I am looking forward to interact with all you guys. I am also new to cosplay, but I have already created one costume. My first costume was making Raiden from Mortal Kombat (2011) and let me tell you, I WAS NOT SATISFIED. I created this for Halloween 2012. I couldn't find any type of material to make the armor at the time and I didn't know how to make the cloth. I was frustrated at the end of the day, but decided to wear it on the day of Halloween.
This year, I'm looking for redemption. I want to create Raiden's alternate costume from Mortal Kombat (2011).
I have found out about Wonderflex, and its just the thing I need! I already made plans on deciding how much wonderflex I need. The problem is, I'm still VERY NEW to the cloth (for the cape). I'm also new on how to create some armor pieces of the cosplay. Things such as detailing with the needle tool, painting/coloring the costume, and all that.
Your help on this will make all the difference! I look forward to working and talking to you guys in the comment section!
Thanks a million!
