Crafting foam props

It’s entirely possible that I’ll never, ever use this… but I found a series of great videos and I thought I’d share them on here (as well as sort of ‘bookmark’ them for myself…)

This video shows techniques for crafting a helmet from foam; foam floor mats, thick craft foam, and thin craft foam.

This video below goes into even more detail about getting great seams with the thick floor mat foam pieces, even on curved seams.

Helmets, hats, swords, armor… I could see it all coming together this way for a costume.
