Foam Factory 2

March 25, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

cosplay crafting cape town

We’ll be hosting the second foam factory meet up! It’s a chilled crafting event where people in the community can help each other with their projects.

Bring whatever project you are working on or would like to work on. It is mainly focused around foam construction but is not limited to it. It doesn’t matter whether you are new to crafting or a master: All are welcome!

In preparation for the meet up here are a few things you can bring.

1.EVA foam. I normality use the interlocking mats that you find at Game and in some toy shops. Or if you can get out to Sondor they have a whole range. 6-8mm is a good thickness for most builds.
I also use 1mm sheets for detailing. These can be found at craft shops. PNA and deckle edge etc
I’ll have some extra foam for those who don’t have or just want to check it out. NB don’t buy soft squishy foam, it is difficult to work with.
2. nt cutter and some replacement blades.
3. Contact glue.
4. Masking tape and cling wrap is you want to pattern armor pieces.
5. We’ll order pizza for lunch so bring cash or bring a packed lunch if you’re not keen on pizza.
6. Bring your enthusiasm!

Feel free to bring a snack if you like. We’ll probably order pizza again!

Looking forward to seeing you there!
