Hi! You are a Master of Eva Foam Construction Technique! I too, have to make bits and pieces of Cosplay Armor, from time to time, but mostly I'm a "Man of the Cloth" and help other FX Foam Technicians by sewing up the Capes, Gloves, and muscle tight fitting Bodysuits that usually go with a Superhero. In America, I'm on an Artist's Journey to find a complete Waterbased Method of sealing the foam, applying the paint, and finishing up with a waterbased clear finish polymer coating. You look like you've acheived this already by using your DIP, Black Base painr, Acrylics, then are you sealing with a clear coat finish? Great work my friend!

Loose French Translation -

Salut! Vous êtes un maître de la technique de construction en mousse Eva! Moi aussi, je dois faire des morceaux de Cosplay Armure, de temps à autre, mais surtout je suis un "homme du Drap" et aidez les autres techniciens FX de mousse en cousant le Capes, des gants et musculaires serré Bodys montage que vont généralement avec un super-héros. En Amérique, je suis sur le voyage d'un artiste de trouver une méthode complète à base d'eau de la mousse d'étanchéité, d'appliquer la peinture, et de finition avec un revêtement polymère de finition transparente à base d'eau. On dirait que vous avez déjà ce acheived en utilisant votre DIP, painr base noire, Acryliques, puis on vous scelle avec une finition vernis? Excellent travail de mon ami!

Merci! C'est super!

How did you attach the horns? A lot of glue or is there a special method relating to the holes?

:iconkurerukreatis:
kurerukreatis Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014
Thank you! ^^ I just create two holes on the top of the helmet, to insert horns with neopren glue around the base :)

The helmet looks amazing! I've been looking into some ways to create a helmet for cosplay, and this was extremely helpful. But I was wondering what type of foam did you use? Was it craft foam?
And how did you get the foam to make the basic shape of the helmet?

:iconkurerukreatis:
kurerukreatis Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014
Thank you for your message: I use EVA foam with 10 mm of thickness :) You have to use a hot air gun to heat up the foam and after you can shape it ^^

because it is made out of foam, how flimsy is the helmet?
Reply
:iconkurerukreatis:
kurerukreatis Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2014
The foam is 10 mm thick so the helmet is very solid :) and it remains light and pleasant to wear.

Merci pour ce super tuto, j'avais des gros aprioris sur le travail/le rendu de tapis de mousse, et le résultat est franchement nickel (du moins entre tes mains ^^' ) !

Juste une question, (je n'ai pas vu, mais je suis peut être passé à coté ><) quelle colle utilises-tu ? Colle néoprène ?
Reply
:iconkurerukreatis:
kurerukreatis Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013
Merci à toi :) Oui j'utilise de la colle néoprène en gel de préférence car elle ne coule pas, c'est très pratique.

Oh my gosh! This was looks so amazing! Your English was perfectly fine! I wanted to know what kind of paint you used to make it look black. I wasn't sure if that was the DIP or something else.

:iconkurerukreatis:
kurerukreatis Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2013
Thank you for your comment :) I use black acrylic paint for the first layer after DIP.

What product is it exactly that you call Dip? Since I would really like to use this technique for small armor parts.

:iconkurerukreatis:
kurerukreatis Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2013
Here is the link for the DIP, it's a french product so I don't know what is the name in other countries: www.castorama.fr/store/Etanche…

It's like latex or Gesso but very interesting because of the power of flexibility.

If I had to guess as to what the American equivalent would be, I would guess Plastidip. It's widely used in the LARP community to seal/prime foam weapons to be painted. See the facebook group here for more details:

Also, if you are wondering where all the random people are coming from liking/visiting this post, Kamui Cosplay (www.facebook.com/KamuiCos) featured this tutorial on her facebook page. Great tutorial, thanks for sharing! I always love seeing the unique ways different people approach costuming and this project turned out fabulously!

Wow that is amazing......And your english is just fine :)....If you ever decide to cosplay as Ysera.....I'd love to see a tutorial for her pauldrons. That's on my to do list and I'm so new to armor and pauldrons O.o

Thank you for this magnificent tutorial!

Thank you so much for your comment :) Ysera is a wonderful project! Her pauldrons are very detailed, it's a challenge ^^ Actually I'm doing a new project: Garrus Vakarian from Mass Effect. I prefer full armor :D

Maybe you can look at the Kamui website, she's very talented and she explains a lot in her videos: [link]

Good luck!

O.o Kamui is one of my idols. I'd love to meet her one day!

Oohh yeah, I just checked out your fb page and liked you on my regular account and with my own cosplay page account, I'll feature you in my interests on my cosplay page! :D <3

I want to work full armor one day. If I could get some worbla, it'd be one heck of an experience. Have you tried wearing like skin tight leather gloves to maybe insulate from the heat? O.o

Yeah! I saw your progress photos!! It'll look amazing when it's done!! I can't wait to watch your progress! :D

Thank you so much!! :3 You're amazing!! Keep it up! :D
