EVA FOAM CORSET IN YOUR STYLE

The corset is an indispensable part of a female cosplayer’s wardrobe and it’s perfect for a variety of genres – be it fantasy, steam-punk, swashbuckling on the high seas.

In this tutorial, We shows you just how easy it is to craft an  corset of your own, out of a single sheet of blue EVA foam.

Light, easy cut, colorful, EVA foam is the right material in Cos-play.

Stuff you’ll need:

1. Blue EVA foam sheet

2. A pair of sharp nosed scissors

3. Contact glue

4. Cling film or newspaper

5. Masking tape or packing tape

6. A marker

7. Craft foam

8. Soldering tool

Step 1:

We’ll create the base shape first. Wrap a dress form sized for your body and physique, or your own body with cling film (or newspaper).

Next, go over it with a layer of masking tape or packing tape. Make sure the fit’s comfortably tight.

Using the marker, draw out the base panels of your eva foam corset. You’ll want to trace around the bust, abdomen and waist areas.

Step 5:

To add eyelets holes for lacing up your eva foam corset, simply reinforce the back panels with craft foam. You can then use a soldering tool to create the eyelet holes.

You can use either ribbons, shoelaces, leather straps or anything you like to lace up your corset.

You can also use a zip at the back of your corset (just contact glue it to the sides of the foam) to hold it together instead of laces, if you prefer.

Step 6:

Now, add detailing, paint and decorate your corset. Be as creative as you want, and you can create a variety of elaborate shapes and designs to suit practically any genre.

This pattern is also suitable for making female chest armor, just like below.
