Want to take your cosplay to the next level? Amazing cosplayer, armour crafter and prop maker Cyehra will be running a workshop on how to make your own Iron Man suit at MCM Hannover Comic Con this May!
Cyehra – aka Katharina Kastian – has been cosplaying since 2003 and crafted her first foam armour in 2014, constructing the Crusader from Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. Since then, she has worked on a wide variety of lovingly-detailed costumes, from DC superhero Batgirl and World of Warcraft’s Death Knight to armour sets from Aion and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, as well as publishing a book of foam-crafting tutorials and instructions.
“When I started cosplaying, there was no literature addressing it directly,” Cyehra explains. “There only were books about sewing or handcrafting that actually didn’t really help. There wasn’t a huge amount of materials that you could use and not many helpful tutorials on the internet either. With my tutorials, books and patterns, I want to support cosplayers and help people get into the world of building and creating costumes.”
