I don't really do tutorials, but I had such a wonderful time with my first experience with Worbla I just wanted to let everyone know how easily they could be creating AMAZING cosplay armor and weapons!

Outstanding! If you don't mind, how much did you buy total for the armor and how much did it cost?

I bought the largest sheet for $80 and had PLENTY left over.

how does Worbla compare to Wonderflex? I used Wonderflex once and I hate the stuff.

I've never used Wonderflex, from my research online Worbla seemed preferred so I went for it!

It's been a few years since I've researched stuff and at that time it was Wonderflex that was highly recommended. Where did you buy it?

I got it on Cosplaysupplies.com, I've never heard anything 'bad' about Wonderflex but Worbla is thicker and a little more textured which is what I wanted/needed
