How are you finding your first time with the EVA ?
Shaping it like a pro :)

I'm finding EVA surprisingly easy to use. I found the cheapest place to get it is off ebay and I've used gym/play mats. I find it thick enough to hold its own shape but also easy enough to mould, I used a hairdryer... worked perfect.

The Armour Comes Together (Damon Baird) (Posted 25th July 2012)

This is my first ever costume that I have made and it will be my very first Cosplay appearance. I was intending to showcase this at MCM Manchester but I was unable to afford all the things I needed to build it successfully. I was originally going to do a standard Gears Of War random but on doing some research into cosplay etc I found myself wanting to do something more specific, so that's how I settled on Damon Baird. I am now over 80% through the build process. Main armour is done and so is the belt (pics up soon). I've just finished gluing together one boot and I'll begin on the other one soon. I hope that I do the cosplay community justice and do a good job.
