Maker Workshop:

Mandalorian Pod

Beverly is the owner and creative mind behind Downen Creative Studios. She is an award-winning cosplayer and master builder, cosplay educator and cosplay community leader. She is the founder of SheProp!, and is the host and producer for the ShePropTalk podcast and SheProp Presents.

Beverly took center stage to lead us through another incredible build: The Child Mini Floating Pod as seen on Disney’s The Mandalorian! Using craft foam, cardboard, a heat gun and glue to create this adorable prop. Beverly shows you step by step how to create your very own pod, and she shares many of her tips and tricks for working with craft foam along the way! This is a great workshop for makers of all skill levels!
