Working on Gin today. This cosplay’s colors are wicked dumb and I get some hella cleavage with it. Talk about totally different from General Asthar. #otakon #otakon2014 #cosplay
These were made with mirror vinyl (bought from a Chinese seller) over craft foam held together with various glues.
Use the following chart when adhering materials so they stick well:
- Vinyl front to vinyl front: Super Glue / Krazy Glue
- Foam to vinyl front: Coat the foam in a very thin layer of hot glue, let it dry, then use Super Glue / Krazy Glue
- Foam to vinyl backing: Contact Cement / Contact Spray
- Foam to foam: Hot Glue (or your favorite method…this is my preferred)
Others have used contact cement to hold the foam to the vinyl backing but because contact cement smells like death to me, I prefer the contact spray adhesive instead.
Really love using this method as it’s fast, easy, and light. Luckily, my armor did not have any complex curves because if it did, I would have used Worbla instead.
