Building Armor With Foam, Part 1




What do you think about this video?

Serg Revolvera: What type of foam is used

Chad Van Oostendorp: So making Halo armor there are 2 ways to do it... Foam and paper... Can anyone who's made this sorta stuff before give me the low down on both, pros and cons on each? I don't want to make them one way and find out I should have made it with the other material... Or maybe some pieces with one and others with the other material?

RandomTeen17: Well at least now I know what to dress up for Halloween lol

SpikeStarkey: "Looking at references" She's making sure we're still watching. I'm on to you. >_>

Alfonso Salaverria: Amazing. Wish I had your talents to make armor for my short film:) I'm making a last star fighter type of film. Do you know of anyone in San Francisco who may be able to help out in this area?

Phoenix Was: can you build one for me?

Carlos Herrera: then submerge the foam pieces into clay to make the mold wait till it be dry and pour melted aluminium to make a real armor.

Johnny W. Wilson: Hi Excuse me What's the thickness of the foam you used?

RetaRedCandy: Is that a Hylian Shield in the BG

Lavux: You make it look so easy! D:

Jack Shepherd: this might be a decent way to make foam armor from scratch.

Dylan Brubaker: Lol when I was watching this vid my sister was watching family guy

TubingWithTurtle: Do you have any way to harden the eva foam of the finished product other than using a blowtorch?

Pogokoala: freaking cool song, and nice work!

Chase Robinson: Mary me..?

sebastien duval: dayum girl ur very gud congratz pure talent and ur pretty aswell

Waka Ole: lol...your cat...:P

LebadevPatrovski: Love your video's, They inspire me - thanks!

Jrod4200: Like drawing wise

Anna Martin: How much did it cost you to make one of these? As far as materials? And also, how long did it take you to make it?

Jrod4200: What if I'm not artistic? 

sirbrad4: Awesome! check out all my costumes and life-sized sometime and on Facebook. Great work!

Francis O'Hoolahan: much respect for using vitamin string quartet ON TOP of the already immaculate armor. Bravo

Heichou Levi Jaeger: Buying my EVA Foam tonight or tomorrow and going to draw out some templates to make my Spartan Armor. But I don't know how many packs of EVA foam I need.

Maverick: the music is annoying

Tamika Sansbury: My dog does the same thing as your cat. Oh and great armor.

Jeremiah L: no, origami is paper folding, this is puzzle making and painting.

FarSeeker8: EVA foam is also available from McMaster Carr in large sheets of varied thickness.

MORIAME0017: Kitty!!!

FarSeeker8: "McMaster Carr" has EVA foam that I've used in making my suit. It's smoother on one side than the other, but it's hardly noticeable. Various thicknesses are available.

Charlee Leung: yeah she is in this video, she said that, but she said she used some pepakura files too

Wyn the Rogue: Very awesome work! Is a mannequin needed to make this kind of armor? I was thinking of trying to make Samus' armor for AX this summer.

bluex217: Do you need to be exceedingly good at oragami..

Matthew Lloyd: im left handed lol:)

downwithcheesecake: Awesome idea!! But I couldn't do this, I feel like pepakura is so straight forward that not many people could mess it up if they took their time, but with this method you can make it look how ever you would like, and no fiber glassing!!

EnderLord007: That armor suit is amazing!

Texas VIKING: the kitty says hello to youtube

Robert Aguero: lol that cat was all like freak yo video xD

FarSeeker8: Trial cut parts with paper or cardboard. U can get cardboard from anywhere. ie: cereal boxes. The build a fitting dummy: cont

DADOX Dado: alguien sabe como se llama ese material gris?

tonkpils667: Groovin' on orchestral Incubus!

Mike Lentsch: I love everything about this video

Viccy Quadrilio: Why can't I find girls into this crap?

TheOganoy: i love you :)

matthhood: Is this foam armor also a bit protective from projectiles like : sticks bing trown litte balls of glass or wood or plastic i need to know cauz i am working on my own arsenal

Nichzz88: its eva voam

Amy .Kruze: You need to wear that scientist coat.

TrevorDeanM: If you keep doing this stuff you'll be a very rich person. you make copies of something cool and sell them in the back of magazines. Very rich.

Arkenarge: I tried to make xcom armor.... i failed miserably, the proportions are off and whenever i try to cut the foam my xacto blade goes out or to deep into the cut. so most of the parts dont fit and leave holes, then as the amateur i am,i try to fill the holes with hot glue and now i have glue all over the place e_e all in all, I messed it up and wasted alot of foam. However I won't let this keep me down.
