October 21st @ 10:30

Utilizing recyclables for cosplay involves creatively repurposing everyday materials to craft costumes and props, showcasing a sustainable approach to costume design.

We will have some supplies on hand, but if you want to be "super creative" you will need to bring some items from home. email Sharon Savage: ssavage@ncdlc.org with any questions.

Minecraft cosplay is a fun way to dress up as your favorite characters from the popular video game. You can use recyclables to make your own costumes, such as cardboard boxes, plastic bottles, paper, and tape. Here are some ideas for how to make Minecraft cosplay with recyclables:


  • To make a Steve costume, you will need a blue cardboard box, a light blue shirt, blue pants, and a brown paper bag. Cut out holes for your head, arms, and legs in the box, and paint it with white and black squares to make the pixelated face. Wear the shirt and pants underneath the box, and cut out a hole for your face in the paper bag. Put the bag over your head and secure it with tape. You can also make a sword or a pickaxe out of cardboard and paint it with silver or gold1.

  • To make a Creeper costume, you will need a green cardboard box, a green shirt, green pants, and green paper. Cut out holes for your head, arms, and legs in the box, and paint it with black and white squares to make the pixelated face. Wear the shirt and pants underneath the box, and cut out small squares of green paper to glue on your arms and legs. You can also make a TNT block out of cardboard and paint it with red and white2.

  • To make an Enderman costume, you will need a black cardboard box, a black shirt, black pants, purple paper, and black gloves. Cut out holes for your head, arms, and legs in the box, and paint it with white squares to make the pixelated face. Wear the shirt and pants underneath the box, and cut out two circles of purple paper to glue on your eyes. Wear the gloves on your hands, and carry a cardboard block painted with any color you like.
