This is the product I like to use to demonstrate how shit is.. It's like $40 locally, and $28 U.S. On Then factor in shipping.

Note that both listings are direct from the manufacturer.

Shoe goo is OK, but Barge is the real deal.

Safety first. No cosplay project is worth serious injury, death, or shortening your lifespan. The safer you are, the longer you'll live, the more time you'll have to make cool nerdy Halo shit. Complacency kills.

All the armor/prop building tutorials you'll ever need. For now, just look over the pepakura and foam tutorials in section 2. Or read them all. I'm not your boss. Plus, everything you learn here builds a foundation towards a better-looking build and a more enjoyable experience. Pepakura stuff is just more pertinent to what I'm discussing right now.

Amazon Shopping List:^*

  • EVA foam: Yeah, they're just foam exercise mats that you can buy at Home Depot, but they're cheaper on Amazon. EVA foam comes in all sorts of thickness, but 1/2" will probably be what you use the most. I use 1/2" thickness for the larger pieces and 6mm for detail work.
  • Barge Contact Cement: Hot glue is easy to work with, but it's messy and burns your fingers while you hold pieces together waiting for the clear adhesive lava to cool down. This is what professional prop-makers use. Use nitrile gloves with this stuff. Trust me. (You'll find more info in the very last link below)

    ^* ^(These two items will probably be the least familiar to most people, but they're the most important. Of course, there are other tools that come into play, but you'll figure that out once you read/watch the tutorials.)

    Downloads and Tutorials:

    Free Pepakura Designer v4.1.6 download - You'll be using this program a lot. It's very easy to use, especially if you know anything about 3D modelling, which I don't. Plus, it's free. And if it's free, it's for me, unless it's an STD.

    Every Halo-related pepakura file in existence so far. Most of these are taken straight from the game. Some were painstakingly modeled from scratch by talented 3D artists, with only high-res reference photos for guidance. Definitely the most detailed way to build your projects. There are files intended for foam, but most are made for paper. Be sure to make the distinction. Even though the files designed for paper can be used to make foam armor (with some modifications, of course), a lot of the templates you print will go to waste. If it's unfolded for paper, the intention is to line it with fiberglass.

    The fiberglass and bondo method is the most detailed and the most durable, but it's also the most expensive and the most time-consuming. I would not recommend this for a beginner on a budget, but if you have the money to spend, it can be a great lesson in patience. I made an ODST helmet using this method for my first attempt years ago. It's not a good-looking helmet, but I still have it. It's currently hanging in my workshop to serve as a reminder of the lessons I learned along the way and that I have the ability to jump straight into a project without any prior experience and finish with a prop that's... well, at least it's recognizable. Maybe one day, I'll gift it to someone who can bring it to its full potential.

    This Instructables tutorial is probably the easiest one to follow that I know of. This is a great place to start if you've never touched pepakura, fiberglass, or even cardstock. I wish this tutorial existed when I built my first attempt 9 or 10 years ago.

    Here's an ODST helmet you can make out of foam - cheap and easy, but not as detailed. These usually come out looking more angular than curved, so you'll have to get creative to solve that issue.

    Bonus cardboard tutorial - fastest, easiest, cheapest, and quite honestly the best tutorial I have ever seen. This kid is a legend.

    The best advice I can give to someone starting out is:

  • Start with something simple, and continue to improve upon it. No piece is ever truly "done." You'll always find something new you want to add or fix. Armor building is an ongoing project.
  • Develop your skills by using a medium that's easy to work with (like EVA foam) or what you're familiar with. Delve into the more complicated stuff later, when you're more confident in your abilities. Some cosplayers have previous experience with things like sculpting clay, then they mold it in silicone and slush-cast it with resin. There's more than one way to skin a Spartan, so stick to what you know while learning more skills along the way.
  • Do not start with a complicated armor piece like a helmet. It's too easy to get in over your head (no pun intended) and your project gets tossed aside because you're stuck, discouraged and frustrated. I started with the smaller pieces like hip plates, belt buckle, butt plate, etc. - escalating in difficulty and growing in skill with every piece until my torso was complete. If a helmet is all you want, then jump right in. Just be prepared to fail. Everyone fails the first time around. Don't be discouraged by that. Take it as a learning opportunity, and apply the lessons you learned to your next attempt.
  • Learn how to make props like the pros. Hollywood propmakers use EVA foam all the time because of its balance of affordability, durability, versatility, and ease of use. I found myself referencing and rewatching this video from Adam Savage's Tested a lot. He talks about how to cut EVA foam, line it up with other pieces using registration marks, and glue them together using Barge contact cement.
  • Ask questions and be a detailed as possible. Provide some photos if you can. As I've mentioned before, previous cosplayers have encountered the same issue you've just stumbled across. If you google your problem, you'll more than likely find the solution. If not, sign up on the forums and ask away. The community is extremely helpful. Remember, we do this as a hobby, so we enjoy the time we spend doing it. It's fun! We want to share our passion for building characters with anyone and everyone who is interested, so helping a noob brings us joy. It makes me feel good knowing I helped someone fix a problem, so don't be shy!
  • Above all, (second only to safety) have fun with it! Experiment with techniques, paint schemes, materials... whatever! You're building more than armor; you're building a character. Tell the story using nothing but your craftsmanship. Is this character a new recruit in shiny, brand-new armor, or a battle-hardened veteran with the scars to prove it? Maybe you want to be the character, like I did. You'll notice that's my real last name on my chest piece, and below that, the rank I earned before finishing my time in the military. The character you build is limited only by what decisions you make out of infinite possibilities.

    I hope this helps get you started, and if you decide to join the 405th, send a message to SGT Razor. I'll gladly watch your career with great interest.

I got you fam. Tandy won’t ship it due to the UPS ground cost. (Federal law barge cement can’t ship air) but will ship it though!

This. They use it to make and repair shoes. Make sure to put it on both sides and let it sit to get tacky. Once you stick them together they won’t come apart, so be careful.

u/candiceflake · 1 pointr/Leathercraft

It is way better than any thing I’ve used so far!

Eh, but I haven’t really found anything else that will top it.
