Sad Strange Little Woody: Would upholstery foam work for making armor?

wwhhaattt333: The hot knife cuts through easier, of cours, but the exacto/hobbie knives are more precise, i'd say use blade that is small that can get your finger closer to the foam for more support and manuverability

wwhhaattt333: Try sanding the edges, so it can be more precise. U don't even need a strong sand paper, since its foam u can even use a nail file

Bleeding Thorn Cosplay: lol i been doing cosplay for 6 years now, but i never done any armor cosplays.. this is my first time. but i will try my best! 😁

Nema Toad: I bet that smells wonderful! Mmmmm lung cancer #tasty

Amanda B. Rambo LMT: I just used a file.  That makes my life so much easier...  Sorry man

Matthew Southwick: you made a pencil

Vel Thraytor: what type of EVA foam do you use, would you be able to link a website where i could buy it?
 thz  much appreciated :)

Patrick Meiler: You should use a sharpie

Chris Gough: Most people would just use a knife.

wrad45: Sand paper is is better for smoothing edges use a fine grit, and be careful not to go to fast you might take to much off

Ryan RampJ: Use a dremal tool for smoother and more precise edges

Dale Bergeron: I have been playing with plastics and foam building for 25 years. Not a bad instruction. I wish you would have shown final complete product at the beginning and end.

Marc Paquette: What do you use for templates to cut out the foam parts?

Zoe JAMET: Use knives to cut everything! O_o Do not use something hot, the foam melts and becomes hard, therefore you can't smooth the edges with a dremel :/

Nyx Danvers: Great tutorial!

I use a box cutter, and have never had a hot knife. Would that be better for details? Also, mine is designed to be used, is hot glue still strong enough for boffing?

00daveyr: Can I ask where you get your templates from? is there a website or are they just free hand?

Demaskinas: Oh crap, man, is that tatami?

Scott McFall: Your cutting seems extremely sloppy and results in much more work than is necessary.
