Cosplay Automail Tutorial 1 by rockinrobin Cosplay Automail Tutorial 1 by rockinrobin
WOOOW this was super exhausting to make. but I hope it will be worth it and be helpful to many people? please let me have some feedback! it is greatly appreciated and I always read every single comment. thank you!

here is the process we used to make the automail seen here:


it is made out of craft foam, clay, and paint. it is fairly cheap to make, and much more comfortable to wear than an automail cosplay made of metal.

this tutorial will cover the entire automail arm and leg except the shoulder.

part 1: materials & supplies
part 2
part 3
part 4

How much of the craft foam is needed for just the arm and the hand, would you say?

Is there any chance that you could upload some stock images of these? I'm trying to make cyborgs in photoshop but nobody seems to have any decent stock of them, and your automail looks amazing/would well suit my purposes

Thank you for the tutorial, I really need this! :D
But I've a question... why is better thicker cotton leggins and not thin tights? (Sorry for my bad English :P)

not too much. probably the most expensive stuff is the gel medium and varnish (which are about $20 each, but you don't need a whole bottle, so maybe you could find a smaller bottle of it.) umm the velcro could be like $10 or so. and super gets a little pricey if you aren't careful and accidentally waste a lot (like we did xD) but not too expensive altogether.
