How to Make Duct Tape Cosplays - By Duct Tape Nerd Life

Duct Tape Nerd Life showed off her sticky skills in November last year and she is back!! She is sharing her love of duct tape and the cool tricks she learned when making her Agitha dress. Check it out! - VFire


Duct Tape Princess Agitha My character, Princess Agitha, was first featured in Twilight Princess but has since appeared in Hyrule Warriors. My design is based off of the Twilight Princess character, though there are only a few small differences in the design in the different games.


When first looking at my cosplay you may notice my fabric seems a bit off – this is because it’s duct tape! I love working with duct tape and figuring out ways to create things that would be easy with fabric but are hard, if not impossible, to make with duct tape.

So how did I make it? It’s actually a lot simpler than most people think. The hardest part is remembering that you are wearing duct tape, not fabric, so it doesn't stretch the same way. You have to include more zippers, snaps, and elast…

Goombah Squad - A Family that plays together, stays together.

Welcome back readers! I am really proud to introduce an amazing group today. This is the Goombah Squad, a family that cosplays and crafts together. Trena and Johny, the parents, are an amazingly talented couple. Trena does most of the sewing and Johny is in charge of prop work. Their first family cosplay was from the Harry Potter series for Halloween. From there their love of creating and crafting grew. Shelly, Felicia, and Braiden all enjoy making the costumes as well as wearing them with their parents. The Goombah Squad uses cosplay to bring their family closer together, even when the projects get overwhelming. They work together as a team and as a loving family to be their very best.


Goombah Squad Motto

A family that plays, together stays together!

Breaking the mold!

I really enjoyed hanging out with and interviewing this lovely family of cosplayers. I hope you enjoy their interview as well!
