Foam for Cosplay & Costume Making
There is nothing more incredible than cosplay and costume making. It allows us to enter another realm entirely and really get into the characters and worlds that we love. But if you want to win the next costume contest, you are going to need to be the best dressed.
This includes crafting fine weaponry that looks realistic but doesn’t break convention rules. How do you do that? By using foam, you can create something that looks incredible and is easy to carry around but is also safe enough to take with you to a party. So, why not take a look and find the best foam to invest in?
The God of Cosplay Foam
It’s Plastazote closed-cell foam. Of all the foam out there, this is the best and most resistant. It is easy to craft with, and yet it remains highly durable so that you can make the most out of your cosplay experience. The smooth surface and compact composition mean that there are no air bubbles, and is also available in a wide range of thicknesses and colours for better variety.
You can use thinner sheets for more flexibility, which is what makes it so perfect for the detailing side of things. Thicker sheets would then be used for the base of the weapon/prop.
What can you use Plastazote Closed-Cell foam for?
Well, the good news is that Plastazote foam can be used for pretty much anything in cosplay. It’s excellent for weapons because it is dense and tough, yet flexible enough to be shaped. This makes it an ideal base for foam suits of armour as they remain realistic without compromising the weight and feel. Its use for weapons is also unprecedented due to the ease of crafting for realism and dramatic effect. It’s easy to cut and carve as well, which makes your life easier when constructing them. It’s also reasonably priced, so what could be better than that?
Is Plastazote Closed-Cell foam safe?
It can have a strong smell for those with a stronger sense of smell and one that takes getting used to, but it’s perfectly safe to use. There are no proven health effects from using it or being around it, but we recommend leaving the foam for a while in a ventilated space for the scent to dissipate. It is completely safe and non-toxic.
To conclude - Cosplay is glorious, and you deserve to have a costume that looks realistic and has weapons that appear as though they are the real thing. Plastazote closed-cell foam is the best tool for the job, and you won’t regret using it. Safe, flexible, and durable; it is the most versatile product on the market for that added authenticity.
