Hi, I'm Noor, owner of Blu Rohbot Studios (formerly known as The Cosplay Cartel). I've been a cosplayer and propmaker since 2014 and officially started doing commissions from 2014. I was awarded a special mention award at rAge 2015 and 3rd Place in the Skit Division at rAge 2017. I have also judged a few competitions for World Cosplay Summit 2019, Icon by the Sea 2016 and 2017 and Geekfest 2017.
I have always been a propmaker but I have also recently moved into sewing commissions too. I'm excited to share my knowledge and expertise in prop making and foamsmithing with you whether you're a beginner or a master. So welcome to Foamsmithing 101!
I would like to speak about working with EVA foam for propmaking and costume builds for beginners and experienced crafting enthusiasts and cosplayers. This would include what is EVA foam? What can this foam be used for? EVA vs SVA vs SPX. What materials to use (densities and type of foam), tools needed for crafting, where to buy materials, how to cosplay without blowing the bank, how to strengthen builds, transporting larger props and a short demonstration of building a prop should time allow and a Q & A after the presentation.
