Sup /cgl/. This is my first time in this part of 4chan but long story short gonna cosplay for the first time, need help. So if you can please answer my questions.

>1) What type of foam would you recommend for a beginner that's cheap but will look very good?

I've stumbled upon a bunch of boards saying E.V.A foam or wonderfoam and all that crap.

>2) Are there any tutorials out there that show first timers on how to actually make armor pieces and such

>3) Instead of a heat gun could I use a hair dryer set on max?

Thanks for your time /cgl/

Lurk a bit in the help thread before making a topic like this otherwise the regular here will just ignore you. There is also a general armor thread up right now that might be worth looking at.

1. EVA foam is cheap and a common go-to. It can be gotten cheaply at walmart, harbor freight etc. Its usually sold in 4 panel packs as workshop flooring or slightly thinner as yoga floor matting. EVA doesnt look good for armor though without considerable work.

2. Here is a guide showing some of the steps needed to make EVA foam armor look good. www.otakuandfit.com/seal-paint-foam-armor/

3. You'd need a proper heat gun. Hair Dryers don't get hot enough. You can get a basic one for under $20 usd though.

At least go to a help thread

Why would you post a serious question on a stupid forum like this!?

> can I use a hairdryer

It hurts how fucking stupid you are.
Sage for stupidity.
