I went to Anime Expo this past weekend and had an absolute blast. My¬†favorite cosplay that I wore this weekend was Ragdoll Poppy from League of Legends. One of the biggest challenges of this cosplay (besides her yarn wig) was her giant hammer prop. ¬†In this week’s Cosplay Work Vlog, watch as I construct Poppy’s massive hammer and as I experience the joys and messiness of working with expanding foam for the first time.
