Even when you’re familiar with advanced cosplay techniques for complex builds, you can’t go wrong with the basics. Kamui Cosplay is working on a cyborg costume for an event and used the tried and true duct tape patterning method to make the top for the armor. She used duct tape over plastic wrap to get the form and drew the pattern directly onto the material. She numbered the segments and transferred them to EVA foam. She assembled them, used a dremel to sand the seams smooth, and filled them with Kwik Seal.
