Congratulations this is a job well done!

Wonderful work like always and very elegant you are.

I think that the red colour suits you very much but every colours suits you because you are colourful like that!

I was glad to see it live, every pieces are beautiful.

However, I was wondering, is it not dangerous to use an iron on the foam to bend it? If not, it means that you have to let it for two seconds or less?

I always thought this could burn the craft since it is sensible. :oops:

thank you very much! :hug:

You could use any source of heat (I've heard of people using steam from boiling water) the trick is to only heat it for a few seconds to avoid it melting. ;)

There's a couple ways to do it, one way requires you to iron it and while it's warm you can mold it to make it curve various ways. The other way is to cut small triangular slits in the areas you want it to curve and glue them back together.

im going to be using EVA foam. is that a good foam to use for armor like that or what did you use?

I usually use just normal craft foam because it's thinner and easier to mold, but EVA seems to be good for sturdier stuff (and can take more of a beating) because it's thicker. I like using it too for certain projects. My Camilla helmet was made with EVA: :thumb117927808:

I'm always so impressed by your cosplays! This one really inspires me to get working on my own Hikaru (same version). Do you happen to have any tips? Especially for the props and armor?

Thank you!

A little trick for foam armor: Ironing it will make it easy to mold, allowing you to make it curve to the area (ex. your arm or leg). For bigger curves, cutting triangular slits out along the edges and gluing them together will give the curve, the more you have and the bigger the slits, the more dramatic the curves. Hope that helps!

It does, thanks! I have also been told you can heat it over an electric stove on low heat, but it that doesn't work well I will definitely try your methods!
