Beware of massive file size!  I finally got around to writing a tutorial on my method of vinyl over foam!  This is the technique that I used on the automail for my Edward Elric cosplay.

Bullet; Green Here are the links referenced in my tutorial:

Bullet; Red If there is anything that is confusing or needs to be clarified in this tutorial, let me know so I can make it better!

Bullet; Blue I would love to see anything made with this tutorial!  Link to any creations made with this tutorial in a comment so I can add it to this post!

Hahaha thanks! I'll definitely need a lot of luck since I'm not experienced when it comes to making cosplay things xD I can hopefully learn though!
