New 52 Flash like-armor foam suit for kid (COMPLETED)


Active Member
Hi Everyone, a few weeks ago I built a new 52 based flash suit for my 4 years kid.


It's all made in 5mm / 2mm foam. The parts are:
- Complete cowl with separated chin (Based of JFCustom captain america foam helmet with modified parts, the chin was extracted from a CW flash foam file and cut to fit my kid's face)
- Belt (freehanded)
- Gauntlets (generic gauntlet template from TheFoamCave used as base)
- Chest+abs (totally freehanded, you can see the pics I've based below)
- Boots (captain america boot covers template from TheFoamCave used as base)

The characteristic lines for the new 52 suit are made cutting a triangular lines (like making a mountain cut, see the JFCustom's post for more info) in the 5mm foam and gluing 2mm strips inside.

Consider only the first figure...

Finally, what do you think about? I'm waiting your opinions

Great work! I love these types of builds for kids. They outgrow everything so quickly it's so much more practical to use foam.
