Cosplay Basics: Gluing Stuff

My first video!

I’ve got a lot of things to work on, like keeping my hands in the shot and not rocking the camera too much, but I hope this helps someone out there! My next video will be about cutting foam, what tools to use, and some crafty techniques you can use to get shapes like this:


I’m always glad to answer questions or to help out in any way that I can!

You can get Barge Cement here
The EVA foam I was working with can be found here
And if you really want a hot glue gun, I would recommend this one

When my father wasn't looking, I used to sneak into the attic to read his old comic books. After being regaled by spandex-clad superheroes at a young age, it's not a wonder I became such a huge nerd. From comics, to movies, to video games, to cartoons, my life has only been bettered by nerd culture and the many people I've met along the way who've shared my obsessions. My first plunge into cosplaying was when I was 18. I went to an anime convention and my costume was absolutely horrible. But, despite this, I loved the atmosphere and the people, so I kept making costumes. My love of cosplaying has only increased, so I'm here to get people interested in costume-making and give as much advice as I can.
