Foam is a magical material that can be used to simulate a variety of textures. I’m continually in awe of what cosplayers can do with craft foam and EVA foam. Jen at EPBOT made the above gorgeous bracers for a warrior Belle look from foam. It looks so much like carved leather, but it’s a single sheet of 12 x 18 inch Fun Foam from the craft store. The material is inexpensive, forgiving, and good to have on hand for cosplay and crafting.
Jen used the foam, a heat gun, a nice sharp blade, foil, and paint to make the bracers. This project uses a variety of techniques and is ideal for testing out your weathering skills. See a couple in-progress pictures below.
Get the complete details on how to make the leather-like bracers and see several more photos at EPBOT.
