View Full Version : Blood Seras Victoria Arm

09-13-2010, 04:52 AM
So I'm going into the planning stages of making a blood Seras Victoria cosplay and I REALLY wanna go above and beyond. Thing is on her shadow arm I want it to look like the OVA version not the manga version (the pic is attached). I know exactly how to paint it, the only thing I'm having trouble on is what material to make it out of, since I don't want it to be stiff and made of something lighter and more movable (maybe camping mats or something like that?) So does anyone have any suggestions?

You could do craft foam over a 12 gauge steel wire base - this will have some flex, but still be stiff enough to stand on it's own. Just foam, unless it's something rigid like insulation foam, will not stand up on it's own and be floppy. EVA foam as discussed here (http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=74830) is pretty much like craft foam, but unlike at most craft stores, you can get it in different thicknesses and sheet sizes.
