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.
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.
On this live stream, Britt shows how she made the template for these rectangular robot forearms. Then, cuts and shapes the bracer from 6mm craft foam and test fits the design.
Britt has started her costume build for DragonCon! The character is her favorite from the video game Destiny. This first video takes the EVA foam robot feet all the way from templates, to cutting and gluing, and even adding the shoe attachments.
Britt picks up some clothes and accessories from a thrift store and modifies parts to match the Star Wars universe. Altering second-hand store items is super useful for cosplay!
The EVA foam Star Wars bracer is crafted and it’s time for paint! Britt uses Acrylic Paints to add metallic and paint-chipped layers to the gauntlet. Plus, she prints some Aurebesh text for the plastic screen display.
