About this Costume
Construction Details:
Made both armors in about 4 weeks from drafting to construction the first time around. I am not happy with them will be remaking quite a bit of both.

Made out of EVA foam, the mat kinds, 1/4" closed cell foam, and hot glue. I heated with heat guns, cut with an X-acto knife, but these have to be right first time you cannot clean up the edges. I recommend scroll saw or band saw if you cannot make clean precise cuts. The boobies I made a mold for, heated it and hand formed it, took both of us to do this. I then turned them over to Turi for paint.

For more details please refer to EvilFX's blog and Volpin Props, they both have more details and PICTURES on building part.
Personal Thoughts:
EVA foam is not my favorite thing to work with, I am not happy with this not one bit will be fixing it up, remaking a lot before I wear it again.
