Make Your Own Marvel Decals with a Cricut

I was so excited when I saw that there were Marvel images available in Cricut Design Space as part of my Cricut Access account. I knew I HAD to use them somehow.

Costumes and Cosplay Accessories You Can Make With a Cricut

Cutting out things by hand for cosplay accessories can be a pain, especially if it’s rather intricate. I remember how long it took to cut out the armor for my Zelda cosplay (I’ll be remaking it this summer with a Cricut tutorial…keep an eye out) and it was indeed tedious. It also wasn’t as precise as I would have liked it to be. Since I was a newbie to that sort of cosplay crafting, I glued it wrong and it showed up through the paint, looking like golden snail trails.
