Expanding Foam
Hi

I'm making this for next year and want to use expanding foam for the big golden arm:

http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/costume/view/28485

I was wondering where you guys tend to buy expanding foam from? Is there a particular UK brand that cosplayers prefer? I'm assuming I can use the same foam you can buy from e.g. Home Base and that I don't need to find a special "hobby craft" type of foam? I've not used it before but I'm hoping that with online tutorials it will work out ^^

Any replies would be greatly appreciated X3

Homebase, Screwfix, Wickes, etc all carry it. But if you have somewhere local that does budget DIY/Homewares check there first.

Here in the East it's QD Stores, but places like PoundStretcher and B&M are worth a look. (Actual £1/99p shops probably won't carry it, but you never know!)

Thanks! :3 I found a local store which has some for around £6/can. I'll also check out the Poundland type places in case I can find a better deal there ^^
