Foam idea. Advice and suggestions welcome


So I like working with foam but never thought it would work for anything but Nolan or armored type suits. But I tried recently cutting some of the big foam mats for my muscles and stretching and heat forming thin foam over it to give it more like one single piece. This is just a test but I think went well. Image Has anyone else ever done this or have any advice on how to make it better? I feel like if I had bigger pieces of thin foam I could really have something that doesn't look like most foam suits. But for this I had to use two. One for the chest and one for the abs.

Re: Foam idea. Advice and suggestions welcome


what i did was taking one of those realy soft foam mats for yoga and or camping ang heat-formed it over a mannequins torso! looks almost like the 89 torso! then i used sprayglue to attack it on a longsleeve! i did the arms/shoulders seperate from the torso for greater movement! works like a charme once you get the hang out of the heatforming!
i also suggest to sew in a zipper to open the top part at the back of the longsleeve!
if interested i have pictures up on the facebook part of this forum! check for Jörg Schiemann, thats me!
