Foam and Worbla armour MEGA TUTORIAL by AmenoKitarou Foam and Worbla armour MEGA TUTORIAL by AmenoKitarou
Brace yourselves! The MEGA tutorial is coming. 
Part 1 Foam Shaping, Part 2 Foam Detailing, Part 3 Worbla

You will need to view full size to read this monstrosity
I hope this will help someone, somehow, someday~! 
Please leave feeback and share! Enjoy. 

P.S. PLEASE READ FAQs before asking questions in comments 

- What kind of foam? Where do I buy?
EVA foam. 5mm thick. I buy it in the form of a gym mat from local malls. 

- What kind of glue?
I use contact adhesive (you can buy this at any hardware store). But hot glue also works~

- Where can I buy worbla?
If you are in Sydney, there is a place that stocks it locally called The Sarlacc Pit in Parramatta. If you are elsewhere... I have no idea. Google "Buy Worbla Online" maybe?

- I can't afford worbla. What can I do?
Follow the tutorial until the end of Part 2. Then seal and paint it as a foam armour. Part 3 is completely optional. 

- I tried this and it didn't work so well. 
Practice. Fail. Repeat. Learn.

- Video tutorial?
There is nothing exciting about listening to my voice while I do tedious things. So I assure you this is the best medium. 

- Commissions?
Yes. PM for details and quote.

- I thought you disliked worbla? 
I do. But since there are many people out there who love worbla, and I am working with it now, why not share some knowledge?

Thank you so much for this.  I've been trying to figure out how to make my armor for a Lady Paletena cosplay and you just answered all of my questions!

I only have 2 months left till a con, and I was going to make a basic cosplay without the armor. But now that I've seen this, I'm most likely gonna try to make at least the foam versions.

Cheers for the guide!

Helpful tutorial, although I'm finding it difficult to cut accurately at an angle like that.
