View Full Version : REM of Death Note HELP

So, I'm making Rem and almost finished. I making a full body from plaster and latex but I don't know how to attach it. I have a black stretchy body suit to attach it all onto. I tryed sewing a peice (hard 0__o) then I used some hot glue, and it worked suprizingly. But I'm afraid it will fall off once I start walking alot. Any ideas??

I'd glue a section and then do a test. Walk, run, move around a see how it holds up. How long are you planning to wear it?

I'm afraid saying to doing a little and testing it is the best Idea I can offer too. I wouldn't suggest a body suit though. If you're going to be in a costume for any length of time, you have to factor in if you can get out of it easily in case you need to go to the bathroom or something like that.

I dont plan to be in it for long, maybe only 4 hours at the most. I just wanted to wear it for a photoshoot. And I dont really need to worry about getting it off and putting it on alot.

I'd say if you end up just using the hot glue, bring a hot glue gun along with you, it can be VERY useful in an emergency...otherwise, use tacky glue with the glue gun

If hot glue fails you, which it might, I reccomend an adhesive called GOOP Household adhesive. It's almost as strong as gorilla glue, but it's malleable, making it okay to use on fabric and stuff that moves. I'm not 100% sure, but it should work on latex.

Since it's so expensive, I suggest try using it in a few (18 or so) key spots and use hot glue for the rest. If that doesn't work out, try using Goop in more spots.

Make sure yu use Goop in a well-ventilated area. It stinks.

I'm not really clear how you need it anchored, but have you thought of clasps, belt buckles, or ties on the inside of the cosplay?
