Questions from the Show:
Justin, are you going to BlizzCon this year? Will you be entering the costume contest with their new format?
Buckaroo – Armor strapping
Justin, what kind of strapping system do you employ for large shoulders, like on your Pharah, to keep them in place? Could a similar method be used for Samus shoulders?
Edward Murray – Tight fitting cosplay
I have always wanted to do a Flash cosplay And I like the sleek aesthetic but it seems my only options are a bodysuit with a pattern printed on it or a set of armor similar to the one seen in the new Justice league movie
Is there a middle ground for tight fitting costumes that allow for better quality and depth than just a body suit, but not as clunky as a full suit of armor?
Sarah – Foam boots
I’m making some giant boots out of foam. Would sealing the bottom of the foam shoe with latex rubber be strong enough to stand up to walking on? I need the tread to be 3d, so I can’t add flat rubber to the bottom.
Jeremy – animatronics
Justin, Im going to RangerStop in Orlando in November, Any chance you’re going?
Costuming question; any advice before I dive into arduino and animatronics in cosplays? (maybe for my ironman.)
NoSpaceship – Traveling with Props and Costumes
Any recommendations on a good truck or piece of luggage to pack your costume in to fly with?
