During a recent trip to San Francisco to film some projects with Tested, Bill got to visit Adam Savage’s workshop and team up with the Mythbuster himself for an epic one day build! The duo made a replica of the Nazgul gauntlet using EVA foam. In this video, Bill makes another gauntlet and then paints them all to look like real metal.
Using EVA foam and a rotary tool, Britt carves her own version of Surtur’s skull-like crown from Thor: Ragnarok.
Britt tries out fabric printing with the Sweeper Bot’s bodysuit! After sewing the printed fabric together into a new undersuit, velcro and snap attachments keep all the foam armor pieces in place.
Bill was visited in the shop today by Domestic Dan and the duo made a custom built corgi masquerade mask from EVA foam!
Reference photos of your head and body can be incredibly for prop and costume making! Bill shows you his techniques for making helpful images quickly and easily.
Bill teams up with Evil Ted to show him the basics of transferring costume patterns to the computer using the free vector drawing software, Inkscape.
