Why not use EVA foam from bunnings? It’s less spongy and lighter, I think…
I think EVA might be what yoga mats are made from, but not as dense as some of the EVA sheets that you can get from Bunnings and Clark Rubber. We used the blue yoga mat as a test for both the pattern and the drape. Some of the EVA sheets we looked at were too firm, so they don’t curve nicely over the shoulder, and sealing the seams can be a struggle as you’re battling against the shape memory of the foam (it wants to keep laying out flat). We went to Ray’s Outdoor Supplies and found a camp mat that was reasonably pliant, and I think that’s EVA but blown with more air in it, though I’m really not sure!
It’s going to be another hot cosplay, but then anything’ll be cooler compared to that bloody vinyl Pyro suit!
I had a dream last night that I was on a plane that was crashing. I remember the noise and the panic, and looking at the woman sitting next to me. We both had these expressions on our faces that just said “we’re not going to get out of this alive”.
And I just saw this.
I don’t believe in premonitions, and incidents like this are always terrible, but having had that dream, it just made me scared of flying for the first time I can remember.
-whispers back- I’ll tell you a dark secret. I’m secretly siphoning off your talent to feed my own drawing power. Your only recourse to steal it back, and regain your rightful place as an artist is to draw right now. Keep drawing and you’ll feel the power surge into you again.
But be careful. It’s a dark path to tread. Because once you have a little drawing power, you’ll always want more. And more. AND MORE. The world will never be enough, even beyond your last breath you will always have wanted to have drawn again. And drawn it better.
