Picture of Carnage Cosplay

This is a build for Dragon*Con 2013.

Hi, this build is for D*C 2013 in Atlanta. Last year I created the Mr Freeze Build and it turned out pretty well/ So lets try something different. :) If you like my work and designs check out my page Night Terrors of Gotham

Step 1: Materials

This time I'm making Carnage. As with all builds, you will need a little bit of patience. The total cost of this will be roughly $80 - $100 depending on where you get your Materials. Always keep in mind to be patient and take your time. If you rush, it will get sloppy. Read the directions first before assuming anything. If you have already done something and it worked, good for you, but if it doesn't, slow your roll, and please read all of the step instructions before acting.

Notice: This build is easy, somewhat cheap, and takes about 2 weeks to do if you are doing this casually.

Base tools:
Hot glue gun
Sharp Scissors
Exacto Knife
Sharpie pen (or a fabric pen)
Painters tape
thin / Wide paint brush (a kids paint bush is perfect)

Lycra Suit (make sure to get 1 size up from your normal size. the Sizing tool had me a large, I got it, I needed an XL. Fair warning)

That's it!!! Not alot of materials, and easy tools!!!
Warning - Sharp tools hurt, and so does hot glue!!! Be careful!!! I also do not condone violence, and i realize this is a very violent character. Please make this out of good fun, and not for violent acts. I make these builds out of passion and respect for the artist and writers who created these characters, please show the same respect.

That's sick!

I have so many cosplays on my list currently, but this is definitely being added!

Great tutorial, too! It's simple and the point but still detailed!

Thanks!!! I try to make it as easy as possible. when I first started, I couldn't find anything for beginners, and I had no idea where to get the materials. I ended up spending way to much and it took even longer. Then I found piece by piece at stores and then different types of foam, and it all started to fall together, and I eventually made my first tutorial which is the Mr. Freeze. Check it out if ya get a chance :) Hope my tutorials can help ya out!!! :)
I love when that happens and it just like, "sweet, this is perfect" Especially when it just works with everything else.
Yeah, I saw your Freeze a while ago, and I still think it's awesome, too!
Heaps cool
