Hot Glue Armour Wut Wuuuut? by PattyPatTCH Hot Glue Armour Wut Wuuuut? by PattyPatTCH
Yay, it's only been years since I took those pictures, but I finally made this tutorial~

This is the only time I like using hot glue for my costumes, it's cheap plastic and it's the best for parts that will move a lot or will need to bend or is in places that would take damage at cons.

Any questions just ask!

Edit: Thank you for all the favourites! I hope you find this useful, and if you do use this tutorial to make something please send me your final product this way, I'd love to see it!

More of Lenus and Stroud that had this armour~

Do you think that this method could be used to make some props as well? I have some ideas, but I would like to bounce the ideas off of you to see if it would work first, if that's okay? :]

Depending on the prop, you may need to have something inside it to support it. Send me a note of what it is you're working on and I can help you out more so =3

Thanks for the really informative tutorial. Cheap body moulding -- didn't realize it was that easy. :)

I'm always afraid I didn't make things clear enough for others when I write it down, so thank you for letting me know!

I've used this method for smaller pieces (my Cheshire Cat teeth and nose for example) but I've never seen it used for full armor before! Thanks for the tutorial :) It looks awesome.

Thanks! :aww:

It was actually my first try and it worked out really well. Plus if I ever need to replace a tooth, it's cheaper than resin. Definitely going to be using it in future.

Looking forward to the next AN :)

I wonder if it can be used to make a mold of a person's head... will have to try. And I will definitely share~

Yes it can!

Cover the person's hair in a plastic bag, (I like to use the bags they use for new papers), having the bag tight on their skull is good!
wrap plastic wrap around their head this can cover the bag used for the hair or not, it doesn't matter it's just so that there is little to no chance of strains of hair getting caught in the tape.
Make sure you leave the bottom of their nose uncovered, don't kill them.
Then tape over that.
use small scissors (like sewing snips or child's paper scissors) and cut them out. I tend to start cutting in the area just below where the ear and the jaw bone meet and go up, mostly, because I don't want any accidents of cutting the person's hair.

Also I don't recommend molding a person's head and neck at the same time.
