Cosplay masks, helmets, and full costumes are gathered here. We make our costumes from a wide range of materials with the ultimate goal of capturing the silhouette of the character. If we’re making armor and weapons quickly, we use foam, which is the most used material in our shop. If we need several copies of a piece, or need something extra clean, we mold and cast durable plastic copies. We even 3D print some pieces! Costumes become mixed media projects of awesomeness.
We’re taking costumes out of storage boxes and putting them on display! First up is Britt’s Sweeper Bot costume from Destiny. The mannequin skeleton is made from PVC pipe, with a few custom surprises!
The Jazza VRtist costume now has lights! Check out how we made parts of our EVA Foam armor cosplay glow with LEDs.
The Jazza VRtist armor is sealed, painted, and assembled! Attaching all the armor pieces was quite a challenge, but we did it!
We get to craft costume armor for Jazza! This is so exciting! Check out this video for EVA foam fabrication awesomeness.
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.
Absolutely incredible cosplay from our friends in Seattle at Emerald City Comic Con 2018. The costumes at ECCC are getting more and more impressive each year!
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.
The Destiny Sweeper Bot’s EVA foam armor is sealed with Creature Cast neoprene, painted with Angelus leather paints, and weathered with acrylics.
Britt shows you how she turned the Sweeper Bot’s robot head design into a wearable helmet. The first step was vacuum forming a visor with PET-G plastic, then tinting the visor blue. The helmet was crafted from EVA foam, leaving room for all the cool electronics.
Britt crafts an EVA foam robot torso for her Destiny Sweeper Bot build! How to make the chest, side panels, and back are covered in this project.
Britt uses EVA foam to make robot legs! The Sweeper Bot, from the video game Destiny, is coming together as Britt shows how to template, cut, and glue foam into the shapes needed for leg attachments.
More of the robot arms are crafted during this live stream. Britt continues the progress on her Sweeper Bot costume, from Destiny, and makes the hand plate and bicep arm pieces out of EVA foam.
