I’ve been learning how to create costume props starting with Plastazote!
This material is often used for packaging because of the density and ability to absorb shock in transit, but as costumiers we can use it for armour, mascot costumes and Viking helmets! I don’t think it turned out too badly for a first attempt…
The good news is that this stuff is recyclable too! It can be shredded and used in the construction industry which would be a great way to get rid of off-cuts without using any energy.
What do you think? Have any of you cosplayers used this before?
