Here are some progress pics from my Hunter build. Made from Eva Foam. Will answer any questions

Step 1: Choose Design

Destiny Rifle.

Find image of the gun you would like to make. Print and cut out the design to create a stencil. Place stencil onto eva foam and draw around it.

Step 2: Cut Foam5

Cut out the the design on your foam. Do this in sections to make it easier eg:
trigger, gun barrel, ammunition, stock.

Step 3: Adding Gadgets

I took a bike light and dismantled it so that the battery and leds were removed from the housing.

I then cut out a space from the eva foam gun and hid the battery part of the light inside.

Then i placed the button of the bike light by the trigger of the gun and hot glued this on, making sure the wires are still intact.

Now i placed the leds in the scope part of the gun facing towards the back of the gun. I created a ammo counter out of clear plastic and black plastic so that the light would only illuminate the numbers.

Step 4: Shoulder Pads

Cut out 2 circles using a food bowl. Thrim the edges to neaten them up and then heat the foam with a heat gun.

Then i placed the foam onto the bowl and used my fist to press into the bowl shape the foam. (use gloves to protect hands from heat) ;)

Step 5: Neaten Up

I then shaped the domed circles by trimming the edges at and angle and then used a dremell tool to smooth out the edges.

Step 6: Detail

Now i used a craft knife to cut details into the shoulder pads and then heated the pads whuch allows the cuts to open, giving it a great effect.

I then added strapping made out of thin eva foam and screwed 4 of them to the shoulder pads on each side.

Step 7: Shoulder Armour to Attatch to Pads

I drew out the shoulder armour design and drew on the detail to be dremelled out.

Step 8: Dremell

I smoothed around the edge of the armour piece and then began to cut into the armour to create depth and detail.

Step 9: Combining the RIGHT Shoulder Pad to the Armour Plate.

I heated and curved the shoulder armour slightly to allow it to sit nicely against the shoulder pad. I then added more strapping on the underside and screwed to both pieces of foam to create a hinge effect.

Step 11: Finnished Result.

Step 12: Finnished Results

<p>Tried the link to your webpage below, but Addidas seems to have claimed it. Do you have a new one?</p>
I absolutely love this build and I really wanna try myself! What I'm wondering is how you attached the eva foam together on the chest armor? Did you use hot glue or?

<p>would i be able to make titan armor following these steps?</p>
<p>I made a Hunter cosplay for Cardiff last October, but it largely revolved around sticking very few EVA armour plates to my paintballing gear. Going to step up my game a bit this year, and you've given me some good ideas, thanks!</p>
Did you just do the chest piece measures to fit and how do you get it off and on?
not bad. first picture I was like eh..then at the end I was like heck yeah. really nice job
<p>Wow! thanks so much for this, me and my brother will be dressing up like them for a Anime con. :)</p>
Can I buy those from you, and if yes please send me any direct photo on instagram@najlamod
What was your technique for measuring and drawing out the chest piece? I am in the middle of a build and am having trouble with fitting the chest armor. Thanks in advance! Your armor looks amazing
What is the material list for this
Can you also tell me how to make the helmet?
What was the end cost of this? By the way, this is amazing.
Do a tutorial on how to make super cool<br>
thanks .i have all of the armour to complete and paint still, soo i will post as i go .
<p>hey man, this is pretty awesome. I'm doing a hunter cosplay for a comic con in my city, I would love to see more updates on your take on it and get some ideas!</p>
<p>oh and a question where did you get the designs for the helmet? And how did you shape it?</p>
Hi, i used a paintball mask and shaped eva foam around it. The top of the mask is open so i had to form the top of the helmet over a mannequin head. I have done alot of the design and detail from images and references. Heat gun, dremell tool, glue gun and impact adhesive are the main items i use.<br><br>I will be updating and poating images as i go<br><br>
Super cool. Bravo.
There's alot more to do. have been working on it less than a month now
