So I've bene lurking here for a while. Just starting my first every serious build. Done some other costume stuff int he past. But nothing on this scale.
So like so many others, my first attempt is on an Iron Man build. I spent a bunch of time building a Pepekura helmet out of cardstock. I fully intended to do the full fiberglass/bondo treatment on it.
After much time spent and a few hot glue burns to my finger tips, I'm totally not happy with the results.
So after reading Stealth's thread about foam building and watching his videos, I'm starting over. Made my templates last night and traced them on to the foam. I'm going with 6mm EVA foam as the 10-12mm stuff just looks too thick to me. Does anybody have any feedback on using it?
