Building Armor With Foam, Part 1




What do you think about this video?

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

RetaRedCandy: Is that a Hylian Shield in the BG

Pogokoala: freaking cool song, and nice work!

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

Chase Robinson: Mary me..?

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

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

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: Like drawing wise

Jrod4200: What if I'm not artistic? 

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

Alessia Abandonment: 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

xBloodXGusherx: 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.

Aidan Stokes: That is the wierdest sandwich i have ever seen

Isaiah Bennett: Good method. I might use it

mentalone1995: You should upload a video of it! Are you on 405th? I'd love to see it

King Ausar: If I start making a a halo costume with this foam method would I be done before Halloween...and if not when do you think

Tommy Fitzgerald: yeah it is fairly cool its not finished yet but i recently tested it. the armour it works beautifuly it easily repelled a full on two handed axe strike which is good.it is heavy but only about the same as a medieval full suit of armour.my suit is simpler but still covers 95% of the body and made out of a much thicker steel and has many more modern features its also more comfortable....the materials are not that expensive its just you cant really build a steel suit on your sitting room floor .

Revo21384: Trying to place this track... Sounds like Apocolyptica covering Incubus' "Blood On the Ground", am I close?

XxGH05TR1D3RxX1: How does everyone do that coz I suck

CoolCostume: Not many costumers do these for sale. Many, like me do this as a hobby. Plus for the materials and amount of time making a set of armor will likely cost up to $1,000. That is usually out of the price range for most buyers.

CuteFighterGirl: Hellow, uhm where did you get the foam? I live in the Netherlands but i can't find it here but i cant findt is on the internet 2 so plz help ^^'?

emilethegeek: Where do i get those EVA FOAM?!

CoolCostume: In my foam tutorial video on (CoolCostume channel)I listed Harbor Freight Tools and KMart. These two are your best bet.

lastdollarfilms: Takes about 6 month of work to finish one.

RogueKnight24: Until you run out of money... xD

School: Thanks for teaching us how to fix it. The problem with most Medical assistant in california is usually the cost of education. Hopefully it'll pay off. Thanks again.
