One of our earliest projects in Wayne’s Workshop was the card throwing Marvel Comics character Gambit.

The body suit was made by hot gluing mock ‘muscles’ to our trusty mannequin Fred. We then layered a thinner sheet of foam over the top of Fred’s now muscular torso and used a heat gun to freehand shape the thinner foam into the gaps and hollows. The thin foam was prone to retaining our fingerprints so extra care was required.

When completed the entire suit was coated in PVA, plastidipped and given a rich hot pink paint job.


Thomas, seen here wearing the costume, donned a headpiece, wig and black contacts to finish the cosplay. An impressive effect!
