TDK Mesh Suit Foamies


So I am trying out two different ways of making the mesh for TDK suit. I ordered the fishnets, so I'm still waiting on those, but for now I'm trying out those rubber grip mats that you put in cupboards and what not.

Using foamies I drew and cut out the thigh pieces, and then glued them to the rubber grip mat as seen here.

And I let it sit for a day. And then I plasti dipped them.

Image

Now here's the problem... the foamies started to fold up.

What should I do? What kind of glue should I use? I'm using the Elmers extra strength spray on glue. Should I plasti dip, then glue it on there?

Re: May I have some HeLp PlEaSe? TDK costume


That's the prob with plastidip and foamies, they roll up after you spray them.

I use the self-stick foamies, they have a sheet on the back, but I just use flat black spraypaint. I cut the foamie first, spray it with the sheet still on the back. This helps keep it from rolling.

Another idea, wear the suit or get it to the shape you need it, THEN paint it.

with foamies your best bet is to use gorilla glue, or liquid vinal. either can be found at a craft store.(jo-anns fabrics)

On mine, I plasti-dipped the foamies first and let them dry (and mine rolled a little as well). But after they were done I would glue each piece on one at a time using krazy glue brush-on and it hasn't failed me yet.

Double sided mounting tape! It's 1milmeter thick/half the size of the foamie I used for the legs, so what I did was put it underneath and OMG IT WORKS!!! YOU CAN'T EVEN SEE A LIL CREASE OR ANYTHING! SEAMLESS!!!

That's so funny you used that. I recently bought that same grip liner for another costume project.

Good luck!
