Re: Bigbat23's TDK foam build


Incredibly impressed. Your Nolan belt genuinely looks like it could be out of a cast and the gauntlets, stunning.

I love seeing someone making great pieces out of foam, it reminds us that making great looking stuff doesn't require 1000 dollars worth of high end mould making materials or latex. It doesn't require having to shell out lots of money on someone elses replicas.

It just requires patience, Care and love for you're craft.

Thank you brother. I really do appreciate that. I have been making my own costumes since I was a kid. It's a release for me. And working with foam has been extremely fun for me. I've been able to achieve some really cool stuff with it. Not to mention it's easy on the pocket book. I still would like to increase my skill level with it though. I'm getting there.

Man Floyd, every time I see one of your projects I'm outright floored.

Thanks a lot Uncle Ed! That means a lot coming from you.

Update:
My (close enough) mesh came in the other day. A bit stiffer than I would have liked but it will have to do.

I also finished up on my son's Nightwing gear. He's happy with it though you wouldn't know it from the look on his face. Lol

That mesh looks great. And your son is just being in character as the brooding sidekick.

Small progress to report. I've been having difficulty getting the chest armor right so I took a break from it to do the mesh top and shoulders and triceps armor. I had to do a second top as the first one was too small. You probably can't see it in the pictures to well but it looks great with the gauntlet and arm armor on it.

Now I have to find a decent pattern for the pants. I also ordered some 3D carbon fiber vinyl wrap. So more to come soon.

I forgot how amazing your foam builds are. Can you remind me where you source the foam you use?
