    Overall my daughter, who s getting started with the cosplay hobby, is happy with the book I ve read through it, and gotten halfway through a project inspired by one of the projects a steampunk cyborg arm.The author has an excellent YouTube channel, which provides video on how to do similar things, so why buy the book Because it s a lot easier to follow instructions in a book as you work through a project at a work bench rather than fiddling with video playback on a notebook or tablet computer, or try to work from memory Additionally, her channel is excellent, so it feels good to support the artist.There is a lot of emphasis on using Worbla, which is very expensive, but that s not the reason I knocked off a star I was hoping for general guidelines and instructions on how to do a type of prop, rather than walkthroughs of doing specific props It would have been nice for there to be side notes with additional guidelines and tips along the lines of If you want to make an X it s a good idea to do Y and on how to adapt the projects in the book to other projects There ARE guidelines like that, but I wanted of that sort of thing, even if it meant putting one less project walk through in the book.For example, it would have been helpful for guidelines and warnings on how to create templates from plastic wrap and duck tape without wasting time and getting stuff wrong on the first few attempts, like how my flabby arm would be compressed, and result in all the pieces being too small

    My son is a prop builder and page 119 shows his talent in the King Loki costume There is good info on working with Worbla EVA foam Wether you are a creator or not there is so much info and very interesting to read.

    I really appreciate that each step is laid out with at least one picture This book covers the entire process, from finding materials to finishing techniques for different types of thermoplastics Have made two successful bracers, and looking forward to making a weapon next Highly recommend this for a complete beginner such as myself.

    this book is great the patterns and directions are clear yet concise explanations answered questions that came to mind pictures demonstrated the process excellently although i bought this for someone else, as a crafter myself i felt it equipped the reader with everything needed to take on any project of this kind it is rare to see a design book so clear and well thought out i highly recommend this book to ANYONE who would like to try this kind of project.
