Comic Con, one of pop culture’s biggest events, is making its triumphant return to Gotham! From October 6th-9th, the Javits Center will play host to the latest and greatest in comics, graphic novels, video games, movies, TV and much more.
Of course, a large part of Comic Con is the cosplay. Indeed, the conference is always chock full of fans who are dressed to impress. If you’re still trying to perfect your look, don’t stress. Instead, stop by MWS and we’ll be happy to help you out! We’ve got all the resources you need to turn your vision into reality.
Comic Con 2016: Cosplays Perfected!
Need to stiffen a garment, sculpt three-dimensional structures or craft accessories? Then you’ll definitely want to pick up some Fosshape. A heat-activated, flexible, non-woven fabric, Fosshape can be dyed, painted, sewn and even cut with scissors. There’s nothing you can’t do! That’s probably why it’s used so often on Broadway, in film and even at theme parks.
Available in three colors (original, clear and black), Worbla is amazing for creating costume pieces – be it a chest plate, a mask, a helmet or any additional component that requires stiffness. This heatable, moldable substance will really add the finishing touches you need.
Wonderflex allows you to create gravity-defying, sculptural elements for your costumes. Though it looks like hard plastic, once heated it becomes pliable and can be molded by hand.
We carry a wide variety of fabric paints, from metallic and glitter to airbrush and spray paints. Indeed, no matter the color spectrum or palette, we’ll have what you need!
Available in 14 popular shades, Magix Shoe Spray is a general purpose spray dye. Though originally designed to be used on shoes, these sprays have been proven ideal for coloring all kinds of leather, vinyl and textiles.
