Have you always wanted the power to transform yourself at will? At our secret Instructables base, we've developed a classified program that will mutate you from an ordinary human into a super-powered costume maker! We think you have what it takes to be our test subject, and all you have to do is enroll here to begin your evolution to the next stage of humanity. Are you in?
In this class you'll imagine and design your own character and then create a costume for your new identity! I'll teach you how to design, fit, and sew your very own spandex supersuit on a home sewing machine. Then we'll learn techniques for working with EVA foam and Worbla, two fantastic costume making materials that will let you create unbelievable accessories to complete your secret identity.
Whether you're dressing as a superhero or some other character this Halloween, the techniques and materials covered in this class will be a great addition to your costume design utility belt.
