Cosplayer Melima > Costume of Astrid from How to Train Your Dragon
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The shoulder armor is made of craft foam and sculpey spikes and skulls.
The ax is a shovel handle and insulation foam.
The skirt was white vinyl which I painted with many layers of brown. The skulls are sculpey. The spikes are actually paperstock cones which I covered with glue/tissue paper and filled with hot glue. I would have liked to use leather for the skirt, but I'm on a budget.
The shirt was a lucky find at the thrift store, however, it was huge on me, so I had to take it in and remove the sleeves.
I bought the boots, painted them, and added fur.
The armbands are just made of fabric and string.
The headband is vinyl with hot glue studs.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I have always loved dragons, so when I saw this movie, it instantly became one of my faves. That being said, as soon as I saw Astrid, I knew I had to cosplay her.
