I had a couple requests for a Star Lord costume, so this is the first part of that. My infinity orb is a bit smaller than the one that was in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie because this was the only side ball I could find that would actually open. If you don’t need your DIY infinity orb to open, you can use any plastic ball closer in size to the infinity orb in the movie. (It doesn’t actually have to clear. I realized afterward I’d said clear during the filming, but it can be any color since you’ll just be painting it anyway). The particular plastic ball I used here I found in JoAnn Fabrics. It was called an ornament ball. If you can’t one find one at your JoAnn’s, they also sell them on Amazon here. (The ones on Amazon open too, and are also a bit bigger and therefore closer to the actual infinity orb size.)
Plastic ornament ball
Utility knife (or something sharp)
Black, metallic gold, and metallic silver paint
3 mm foam (a half sheet will be more than enough)
Hot glue gun
2 purple plastic gems (for infinity stone)
