RetaRedCandy: Wouldn't it be better to use a box cutter or a exacto knife to cut rather
than a hot knife?
TheYnotThat: Where do get the foam at and at what cost?
Matt Anderson: How durable is the hot-glue because I have seen hot-glue come apart easily
Geoffrey Herz: I think you could optimize your process by not doing any detail work such
as snipping off the excess until the very end, right before the pieces are
Would sandpaper work better for smoothing to a finish instead of scissors
and the hot knife?
Joshua Stuart: What type of foam sheets do you use?
Nosrej Chaokad: DIY attach a blade cutter to a soldering gun... :)
Matt Anderson: What costume are you making?
daniellesheadspace: This is so time consuming! There are a lot of faster easier ways to do this
than hot knife. But hey whatever floats your boat.
ImagineDreamsStudios: Dremel. mans best makers best friend.
noah davis: wtf is it halo armor or what the hell was i watching
Mion Sonozaki: I'm thinking on doing a lambda 11 cosplay from blazblue the video game, and
this helps alot! Thanks!!
Scott McFall: Your cutting seems extremely sloppy and results in much more work than is
Legoguylol4ever: Thanks! This'll be really helpful with the Halo Armor I'm making for Comic
Dan Dorio: hey i like your video about making this. Is this how the process on
building sparring armors too? I'm going to have a thesis about it that an
armor can take a maximum of 80 to 95% physical force from a master. Please
do reply! I need it. Thanks!
Winston Weaver: what is the Hot Knife you're using??? I'm looking into getting one but I
can't find one like yours...
SplatCommandPB: You can skip all of these steps by using a sharp box knife and a dremel. It
is a lot faster and more accurate.
S47Striker: This is the shoulder piece to and ODST isn't it?
Sabina MikeWazowski: The smoke from the burning foam really can't be healthy for you.
Watch out for yourself mate :L
Kinnamon100: HOT KNIFE!? Call it what it is a wood burning pin. It's not even a
blade.. that tip is used to make leafs. I believe in using what you have
and making it work, but your not helping anyone if your not going to be
honest with them.
DJOpaixMusic: isn't your momma woopin your butt for hotknifing on the kitchen floor?
Uncle Ben: Can you direct me to where I can find a template for the armor plz?
Nick Stone: ive always used a dremble and it takes about half the time for leveling
ImagineDreamsStudios: * makers best friend. oops stupid typo.
Anna Martin: Where do you get your material btw?
Matt Anderson: Im good at making historical costumes of the ancient world except the Roman
Lorica thats a hard piece to reproduce.
stickyman66: The main theme of this video is the CUTTING (over 6 mins watching you cut
foam!) and where is the building part???
laokram: And it wount work if you don't do all that on a tiled floor !
sirbrad4: Nice! Although I would not recommend breathing in those fumes all the time.
Scott riggs: You can also find these mats in your local wal-mart, They are in the
section of the store with the workout stuff usually near the equipment or
bobyo hovio: can't you just sand down the edges with very fine sandpaper?
joshtimasprime: I never said you can't, so don't put words in my mouth. I said it's stupid
and over complicated to do this when its easier to just cut it at an angle
when cutting the piece out. I also never freaking said my videos were useful
or better so shut the freak up about them. I have links in the description
to better tutorials and I note that in the videos. My videos on not
tutorials, they are vlogs dumbass. I only show small tutorials on basic
crap inside the vlog.
shado12107: That glue gun looks familiar, I use the same model. Anyway I was thinking
of making armor and now that I've seen this the project doesn't seem as
b1101673: Really gonna help me make my armor
TheCorporal101: This is a nice tutorial, but it looks like it takes a pretty long time to
get a couple pieces ready to be connected, how long does it usually take to
complete a full piece?
nauchima: the foam is called EVA foam (or impact, anti-fatigue mats) you can find it
at hardware stores or a fitness equipment vendors. they are floor mats used
for high traffic areas. I've found them at Big lots, Home Depot, and
walmart.. yes.. walmart sells them but you have to find them in the fitness
justin robinison: how much is a hot knife
seth heck: do you need a hot knife cause i just have an exacto thats not
UnitedPropBuilders: I havent as long as you hold it together till its dry or mostly dry
Uriah Funk: Yep. Use sandpaper to smooth any rough spots if you don't have a hot knife.
Christopher Ian: Soldering irons are called hot knives? You learn new things everyday.
joshtimasprime: Don't call me derpy when you're the retard that used you're wrong in your
first comment to me. I don't preach my own methods and channel, I don't
think I have said com to my channel a single time unless someone asked
about it or it was to temonstrate the right way to do it. You can't do
whatever the freak you want, I was just saying its stupid, over complicated
and doesn't yield as good of a result as just cutting the angle in when you
cut the piece out.
SomeDrummingGuy: Anything from a couple of says to a couple of years. It really depends how
good you want it to look. Spending Longer Time = Better Finish Spending
Less Time = Worse Finish It is up to you.
SleepingNight: or where do you buy the foam?
SleepingNight: Where can you buy the Foam?
UncommonSituations: no lead is deadly
joshtimasprime: Why don't you watch my videos and see for yourself, jackass?
Diogo Brito: why dont just use de x-acto? it does a better cut without the need of
leveling and the possibility of burning the foam?
Billy Doran: heyyy everyone, im looking to start making some foam armour, can anyone
recommend any specific type of foam, tools, or anything else i might need?
i've literally just been looking at videos and photos of some different
costumes and armour that has been made for conventions and whatnot, so i
have no idea where to start, ANY help would be extremely appreciated! :)
Jora Shepard: Derpy, you did say that. On one of the videos I watched regarding pepakura
printing, and those methods used. In addition to that, your comments have
been on 2 other videos I've watched, preaching your own methods and
channels. For the record, jack ass, people usually comment a joke or to say
'good job'. Not to call one another incompetent. So keep yourself in check.
