  • Creating a Costume/Cosplay from E.V.A Foam

    so today i went to hobbycraft to get all the foam, they only sold 45 x 30cm and 22.5 x 30cm, they are the same sized ones and they would probably work with what i am after, although they are black and i would have to put Grey on somehow. This is the design i want to go with, and i have 5 weeks to get it done, i have a friend making the mash, i just need to make the arms, legs, knees, and feet, but i have some old Welly Boots that i can spray paint to Silver if necessary. the 45 x 30cm Sheet of foam will be used for the legs, arms and the chest. and presumably the knees, elbow and other things with the 22.5cm. Does this sound pretty good. also the foam i got bends easily and doesn't require a heat gun. For the Hands i was thinking of wearing a glove, draw around that, then mould the foam...see more »so today i went to hobbycraft to get all the foam, they only sold 45 x 30cm and 22.5 x 30cm, they are the same sized ones and they would probably work with what i am after, although they are black and i would have to put Grey on somehow.

For the Hands i was thinking of wearing a glove, draw around that, then mould the foam around it, But i would like it to look pretty thick with the freedom of hand movement. would something like cardboard or newspaper underneath the armour make it look more muscular and realistic to this Design : https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/9c/31/01/9c3101c752a4575d3a7566ff45179008.jpg

    Do you perhaps have a link to the kind of templates that would be needed for this design. Your welcome to PM me if that would be easier.

    Hi there im currently in the process of making a doctor doom costume, which foam is best for that because he is rather muscular and im a perfectionist. So i need to almost replicate his outfit. What tips can you give me. This will be my first build.
