Awesome. I hope so~! :3 I'm not going to have a full suit thing of foam armor stuff. Mostly just pieces, so that'll probably also make me feel better about it getting scratched and whatnots. And thank you~! x3
Thanks! This is helpful! The armor for the cosplay I'm working on right now is a lot less intricate than what is pictured (all I need is simple elbow guards and paldrons)...I've been working on the elboy guards, and what I did is seal them and coat them with fabrick. By any chance do yuo know if I should use acrylic paint or puff paint for the most realistic finish, or am I doing it wrong alltogether?
Both of those could, in theory, work for something like this (I've never used them with craft foam though, so I couldn't say for certain). However, I use a mixture of Elmer's glue and water to simply fill in the pores of the foam, but still retain the shape and thinness of the original foam. Basically it's just smoothing it out, without compromising the shape or thickness of the foam.
