This has me drooling.. I recently bought a heat gun for shaping fun foam for my cosplays, but after seeing your tutorials I think I may have to track down some worbla, too. This all looks so amazing~

Thanks for this tutorial!! Perfect for my upcoming X/1999 Project! THANKS!

But, Just a question. The circle, I mean the hilt...
is it made of thick foam too?
How thick is that foam?

I don't know thick and solid foam... so I'm a little bit helpless what kind of foam I should use for things like the hilt. Is there any technical term or any brand?

I just read the gamescom rules and regulations about weapons and it's kind of confusing to me (very formal and in english, which is not my native language) and I'm wondering: do you happend to know if these foam&worbla weapons are allowed at conventions like gamescom, comic con, animecon, otakon etc?
AmenoKitarou Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes they should be. 
Though, you should be directly contacting event organisers instead of me. 
I am on the other side of the world, and I have never been to any of those conventions. Their rules to the ones in my country.

Your tutorials are fantabulously helpful.  I have never worked with foam or worbla and I think I have some hope now.  Thank you for sharing your wealth of experience and knowledge!! 8D

i love your work! 
but, how can i seal the foam? 
what kind of paint should use?
i hope you can help me ;w;
AmenoKitarou Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
the simplest way to seal foam, that I know of, is PVA wood glue. I use acrylic paints for foam.

Looks great! I was just wondering, how durable/fragile is it?
AmenoKitarou Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
It's indestructible.
