Let KamuiCosplay Help You Get Started Making Armor From Foam

Making armor from foam, often referred to as “foamsmithing” is a popular area of cosplay exploration. Foam happens to be perfect, you can mold it to shape and age it to look like hard, battleworn armor, but it is lightweight and easy to work with.

KamuiCosplay is here to help you get started by sharing everything you need to know, to get started with EVA foam armor. Svetlana includes tips on which foam to select, what adhesives to use, cutting , painting, and even attachment methods.


I get ridiculously excited seeing people make things. I just want to revel in the creativity I see in makers. My favorite thing in the world is sharing a maker's story. You can find me on twitter at @calebkraft
