Step 3: Pierce Holes and Glue the Magnets

EN :

I used a red hot piece tube of metal to pierce de big holes trough the EVA and the rubber.

I used a heated screwdriver to melt the top of the foam. Don't pass trough the foam ! The small holes will serve as support to glue the magnets.

FR :

J'ai utilisé un cylindre de métal chauffé au rouge pour percer les gros trous à travers l'EVA et le caoutchouc.

Pour les plus petits trous, j'ai utilisé un tournevis lui aussi chauffé pour faire fondre le dessus de la mousse. Ne traverser pas la mousse pour cette étape ! Les petits trous servirons de support pour y coller les aimants.

    This costume turned out great! I have a few questions about the materials used. Would you please elaborate on:

    1. What material is the sheet rubber? Did you pick a specific durometer?

    2. What type of glue did you use to bond the EVA foam to the sheet rubber?

    Thank you for sharing - it's much appreciated.

    Hi :D Thank you for your interest.

    1) The term "Sheet rubber" was the only term that I found to describe the product that I used :p (I'm Belgian, my English level isn't' excellent).I simply used an anti-slip mat for car. I have no information about the proprieties of this material.

    2) I used "classical" transparent contact glue (neoprene or something like that).

    I hope that helped :D
