Saengchart’s cosplay and the fan army it has earned him is even more impressive when you consider his competition. From buying their outfits at stores to commissioning artists to create one-of-a-kind costumes, it’s common for people to spend up to a couple thousand dollars on a single look.
Which shouldn’t come as a surprise when you consider that people paid an estimated $17.8 billion for costumes and wigs alone in 2017, and the global industry is said to be worth at least $45 billion dollars and growing at a rate of 15% each year.So in a game where some think that big bucks mean big attention, Saengchart is living proof that the opposite is (also) true.
“If you become creative and properly use your imagination, you can use anything that makes you happy to cosplay,” Saengchart said in an interview.

The Ufa-based artist uses an X-ACTO knife to carve miniature renderings of various characters from pop culture, buildings, statues, and everyday objects. It is a delicate process because the success of the artwork depends on how much pressure the lead can withstand. Therefore, mistakes are inevitable.
For the artist, carving miniature renderings is like a meditation and a challenge at the same time. The most difficult task is to make a micro sculpture and not to break it. These sculptures are fragile and tiny, and that excites the artist the most. The artist likes to pay attention to the details and bring each sculpture to perfection.
Fidai was born into a family of artists so it’s quite natural that he became an artist himself. His artistic journey started around 5 years ago and since then, he has continued to surprise us with his carving skills. If you are interested in more artworks by this artist, you can find them here and hereon Bored Panda.

Hi! I’m an artist from the Yorkshire Coast, England. I paint colorful, alternative portraits of iconic people. I suffer from depression aka ‘the black dog’ as it is sometimes known but I find that my art allows me to paint over the darkness.
I express myself with color as a way of managing my mental health; it’s not just a job or an interest, it’s part of my self-care routine and keeps me grounded when the dark storms in my head threatened to carry me away. I hope you guys like my work and would love to hear from others who use their creativity to combat mental health issues.
