we understood that I necessary to cosplay Maui when I saw his character. This is how used to do it
First step would be to get a hold of good picture online to use as a template. The hook is scaled to my level such that it appears proportional
As a cosplayer, i prefer a sturdy but light prop that I am able to carry around all-day
Materials that are convention safe like Pink Insulation Foam work great for prop creating. I glued various levels collectively and used my template to cut-out the hook. Utilizing a wood burning up tool I carved the styles in to the hook.
we coated the hook with several layers of lumber glue for a pleasant seal before we started painting
And I included some weathering
I wanted the rope slightly darker versus shade I had and so I let it soak in some tea
for leaves I patterned out dozens of various leaves every one some various
Traced the habits onto art foam
I didn’t understand exactly how many color variations were in Maui’s top. Countless!
Leaves leaves everywhere
Theyre getting there
I drawn all leaves to line utilizing hot glue
the necklace I wanted light materials once again, very much accustomed Apoxie Sculpt
Traced out some teeth on a sheet of paper and paired the pieces up.
a significant load of dust from sanding these. But it wasn’t also bad
when they had been the shape i needed we added weathering
And tied them onto a rope necklace
The body match was custom made by my friend inside UK, Wakandanprops
Some men and women said i ought to’ve worn a wig
Some people stated i will’ve shaved my beard
But I do believe it turned-out perfect
It’s my form of Maui, i enjoy it, and I also wish you do too
