Foam Board Weapon Tutorial by FireLilyCosplay Foam Board Weapon Tutorial by FireLilyCosplay
As a Thank You to all my supporters, here is the Foam Board Weapon Tutorial!

I've had a lot of practice with this method, and this is the formula that works best for me, so I hope it can help you make your props with ease. I really enjoy working with my hands and making props using various methods, so please don't hesitate to ask questions if you have any - I'll be glad to answer them!

also would you suggest using the styrofoam cutter form when cutting out the base of the prop or? Because I don't really need to cut anything else out from my prop besides from it's normal shape/outline/base.

The styrofoam cutter will only cut the foam and not the cardboard. You can get long pieces of pink insulation foam for longer props, but you would need a center support or it'll break.

I have a quick question, I'm going to start working on a prop soon for an up coming con, but the length of the foam board isn't long enough for how I want the weapon to be. So should I use the contact cement to connect the different pieces of the prop together or?

Just use something else if you are doubtful. Like fiberglass or epoxy or resin. This is simply one method.

Will it stay sturdy and solid if I use paper mache and fast mache? >.<

Does the gesso strengthen the foam board?
