Tutorial: Evoker (Persona 3)

I recently made evokers for my group and it ended up being simple and quite inexpensive so I thought I'd share my method in case others are interested in it.

I posted the full tutorial on my blog.

Oh man, this tutorial is awesome. ^_^ Too bad I already commissioned an evoker otherwise I would have made it myself with this.

Good job!

Wow, the end result looks amazing, wouldn't have thought you could make it look so good by just making it out of layers of craft foam sheet.

I'm gonna take a reference of this tutorial --- I doubt I'll cosplay from Persona 3 in the future, but I will require props for future cosplays which I think could be made via the same method.

Thanks for the tutorial!

Awesome tutorial! I've been wanting to try gesso over foamcore in other projects but I never would have thought to use paper mâché or to stack it like that.
(I did alot of work with foamcore in my 3d design class so I'm a fan of that stuff)

Thank you!

Foamcore and craft foam are not exactly the same though, aren't they? Of course you could use foamcore covered in gesso or spackling paste for similar projects, if that's what you meant, but I think it would be too thick for this specific project.

Hah yeah your probably right.
I always think foam core when I see this sort of thing. I don't think I've tried craft foam actually.
Either way the stacking, again is a good idea lol.

Since this is something I'll 75% be likely to do, quick question:

Would gesso work instead of spackle paste? First time making much of anything like this so I dunno. I assume the goal is to fill in gaps or whatnot to get a sandable surface that isn't foam.

Yes, I believe it could work too. I was using gesso at first, but it's harder to sand than spackling paste (in my opinion) so that's why I stopped using it.

Oh wow this is super awesome and helpful! I'm thinking of doing a Persona 3 cosplay next year and I was unsure how to go about making an evoker so I'll definitely give this a shot.
