here is part 2!

again, please let me have some feedback! it is greatly appreciated and I always read every single comment. thank you! (:

here is the process we used to make the automail seen here:


it is made out of craft foam, clay, and paint. it is fairly cheap to make, and much more comfortable to wear than an automail cosplay made of metal.

this tutorial will cover the entire automail arm and leg except the shoulder. for another great tutorial which covers this part, you can go here: [link]

part 1: materials & supplies
part 2
part 3
part 4

I'm not doing an automail cosplay (pretty new to diy cosplaying), but I was looking around for how to make a robotic-looking cover for one arm. This is so simple I should have thought of it, but I didn't. So useful! Thank you! :D

This is pretty genius, I really love the idea. =]
I want to try a female Ed cosplay but I was really concerned about having fairly realistic automail, not to mention in a decent price range.So this is great! Thank you ^_^

this is a great tutorial! but I was wondering if you could make one for the hand and leg. I tried with that link but my computer says it can't open it. idk why. but if you could make one for hand and leg I would appreciate it very much.

My sister is planning on going to a convention as paninya and I was wondering if this tutorial could help with the leg as well?

This is Fantastich! This tutorial really helped me with the arm portions but I'm still so confused about the hand and finger parts. Do you have another tutorial for those?
rockinrobin's avatar
No I don't, sorry. But I recommend this tutorial: [link] she uses a different material than craft foam, but the process and shapes are generally the same. :)

Awe come on... please do the other parts soon T^T

In the pictures of your automail, is the hand attached to the arm piece? This would be goo to know when I make my arm! Your tutorial will be super helpful, thanks for posting it!
