This is a commission I received for some cosplay props. They are the guns named Ebony and Ivory from Devil May Cry
I was provided with the actual Mesh file of the guns, but I ended up just making a profile in Inkscape so that I could cut them out of pink foam.
The cutter chopped off a bit of the end of one of them, so I had to add a little on.
After a few hours of slicing and trimming with a hot wire cutter and a long bladed exacto…
At this point, I tried several different types of foam covering, all of which did not work to my liking. Due to the number of restarts I had to do, I failed to continue taking pictures.
I eventually ended up deciding to use Wonderflex, which is a thermoforming plastic that self adheres when hot.
These are what the finished product looked like. The commissioner wanted to paint them himself. Had I been paid more, I would have added relief details with the wonderflex to create the flowery detailing on the guns.
I will be working more with wonderflex in some upcoming posts so stay tuned!
Upcoming projects include:
