tutorial for chest armor (craft foam)

HI since i been getting alot of questions on how i make my costumes i decide to make a tutorial on how i did it. the whole process is pretty simple. and it can be used for most armor type design. i used this pattern for warrior of light, dark cecil and right now for legend of dragoon. the whole process only cost 8$ for a roll of craft foam.

Thanks for sharing, okageo. Do you buy your craft foam online or at a local store?

What do you cover your craft foam with as a sealer so you can paint it/give it a nice shine like your black armor/avatar has.

I used this same method for my Pathfinder Barbarian costume, but instead of modge podge I used Acrylic GEL that I got from the art store. It seals the porous foam really well and dries fast, then you can paint over it whatever color you need to make it look like the armor, loved it!
