Just over a week ago, I shared photos of Morgan’s (also known as Methyl Ethyl Cosplay) new Wonder Woman costume. She designed it based on photos of Gal Gadot’s costume in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Rather than sewing the corset from leather or sewing it at all, she crafted it from EVA foam. The finished piece looks remarkably like leather and since she’s received several compliments on it, Morgan wrote a quick step by step:
1) form base
2) create and add details
3) coat with Plasti-dip
4) paint piece
5) contrast it
6) gloss it and add battle damaging (I sealed the paint with Mod Podge then applied a couple layers of Pledge floor care.)
You could test this on a small piece of EVA foam before committing to an entire corset.
