How to make
Use this shoes as a base.


Make Templates from Drawing paper.

Repeat cutting and pasting.


Cut open.


Copy to new Drawing paper and make a fair copy.


Assemble the fair copy.

Make the heels.
Cut out 10mm thick EVA foam.


**********************************************************************

EVA foam is a soft material.
You can process it easily.
Another name is EVA board, EVA zote, Craft foam etc.
I usually use one called "Lion board".
"Lion board" is sold only in Japan.

Watch video.

**********************************************************************

Use a sharp blade. For example, "Pro Blade".
This is so sharp.
←10枚入り ←50枚入りお得パック

When you cut, put EVA foam on Cutting mat.
Don't cut in the air, while holding by hand.
Break a b blade frequentry, if you feel sharpness of using blade became bad.
If you want to do work more speedy, use "Running fire box cutter","Blade breaker".
"Running fire box cutter" can have 6 pieces blade inside.
"Blade breaker" can break easy and speedy.


Use Art knife PRO for small ornaments etc.

Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).



Make the body parts.
Copy the edges of Templates on a material with a pen.

Glue with a Liquid instant glue.
When you use a Instant glue Accelerator, Hardening speed becomes fast.
(Smoke may be generated. Don't breathe in the smoke and don't put in eyes.)


**********************************************************************


Instant glue can glue a large surfaces easily.
But it can't glue a small surface such as this photo well


Then you should use a following spray.
I always use this.
Watch movie.

Instant glue Accelerator
This can glue surfaces in several seconds.
When you use 100ml, you can make a armorset or about three weapons.
←100ml ←180ml ←420ml

About instant glue
I use general liquid Instant glue.


Case of sticking except instant glue.
"Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) can glue too. It's can glue narrow surfaces too.
But it's take time.
Moreover, when you use Thinned "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) as a undercoat,
glued surfaces may melt.
(If you use Gesso, there is no problem.)

**********************************************************************


Glue with a Liquid instant glue.

Remove the corner by toasting with a Lighter.(Don't breathe in the smoke and don't put in eyes)

Paint a undercoat on EVA foam.
The effects are as follows.

-Color becomes well.
-It becomes hard to come off.
-Gloss comes out well.
-You can save quantity of the paint.

There are two methods.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.Gesso
This is easy.

【Merit】
-It's usable just to paint with a paint brush.
-Gesso don't contain thinner, then you can use it in the room.
-You can use also Acrylic paint.

【Demerit】
-It's easy to come off than Thinned "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan). (Moving parts in particular)
-It can't use for PVC pipe or plastic sheets.

【Recommendation】
-Weapons
-Armors without a moving part.

【Undercoat】
Gesso or Black Gesso
or

【Paint】
Lacquer Spray or Bottle lacquer paint or acrylic paint
or
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.Thinned "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan)
This is difficult.

【Merit】
-It's sold in D.I.Y shops.
-It'st hard to peel off.
-It can use for PVC pipe or plastic sheets.

【Demerit】
-You must thin it.
-It needs thinner, then you must work outdoors.
-It burns easily.
Don't use fire until drying, because "Bond G17" burns easily. Don' use a Lighter etc until drying.
The parts will be charred in seconds.

【Recommendation】
-All props
(Props with a moving part in particular)

【Tutorial video】


【Undercoat】
"Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) thined with lacquer thinner
-for big things -for small things

【Paint】
Lacquer Spray or Bottle lacquer paint

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I use Thinned "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) in this tutorial.
But I recommend Gesso for begginers.


Paint "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) thined with lacquer thinner three or four times.
Don't use fire until drying, because "Bond G17" burns easily. Don' use a Lighter etc until drying.
(It will char in seconds.)
Dry it about 2 ~ 6 hours.


Paint black with Lacquer Spray.
