Red Hood Fan design armor by teranmx Red Hood Fan design armor by teranmx
The helmet is based off of a piece of art from deviant art which makes Red Hoods helmet more sci-fi and has full environmental features. The armor is a combination of my own design and tweaking of a set of wings he wears in one of the newer books.
A friend asked me to design him some armor for his red hood costume. It's a combination of Pvc Plastic, Eva foam, plasti-dip spray, found bits and carving. The feet are a pair of work boots encased in craft foam and eva foam. First time doing it. Will get better later.

Looks wicked :D
I'm thinking of doing something similar for this OC costume I'll be working on soon.
Was it difficult getting the EVA foam to the correct shape?

It's just a matter of heating it with a heat gun at least three times around a shape that is close to the whatever it is going over. I would heat it, wrap, rub.... heat, wrap, rub... heat wrap rub and on the third time I would use strapping tie it into place and leave it for 12-24 hours... depending on the difficulty of the shape. With the shoes on the third time.. i hot glued it and then strapped it, so the hot glue would not separate. But on like curves.. I just added layers and carved down with my dremel. Just be careful. If you glue all the way to the edges you don't want to dremel those. It will get glue all over the bit. So if you THINK you might dremel, carve, sand etc edges.. only glue in the center and leave some space open from the edges. Once you've carved or sanded then glue those spots.

Thank you so much :D
I'll copy this into a note so I remember it

you will be able to tell it is being affected by the heat not by just the heat... but i should begin to curl bend a little and the texture will shift slightly darker.

Do you think it would work OK with a hairdryer?
Or should I just try and find a cheap heat gun?
teranmx Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012
Hair dryers do NOT get hot enough. Best place for a cheap but good heat gun. Harbor Freight and Tool. i did a number of tests from curling iron to hair dryer. Heat gun is best due too contralbility. My room mate one time put his eva foam in the oven. I told "you better watch it because it can't be in there too long and a strong chance of it getting messed up." He waited too long and it had started it's internal fire process. The foam came out smoking and shrank down to 1/5 its original size and stunk the apartment up. Always keep your eyes on your work.

Yea I'll keep that in mind :)
Never heard of Harbor Freight and Tool, I'm assuming their isn't one in Adelaide :P
Hopefully I can find one at Bunnings or something...
