Questions from the Show:

Justin, are you going to BlizzCon this year? Will you be entering the costume contest with their new format?

Buckaroo – Armor strapping
Justin, what kind of strapping system do you employ for large shoulders, like on your Pharah, to keep them in place? Could a similar method be used for Samus shoulders?

Edward Murray – Tight fitting cosplay
I have always wanted to do a Flash cosplay And I like the sleek aesthetic but it seems my only options are a bodysuit with a pattern printed on it or a set of armor similar to the one seen in the new Justice league movie
Is there a middle ground for tight fitting costumes that allow for better quality and depth than just a body suit, but not as clunky as a full suit of armor?

Sarah – Foam boots
I’m making some giant boots out of foam. Would sealing the bottom of the foam shoe with latex rubber be strong enough to stand up to walking on? I need the tread to be 3d, so I can’t add flat rubber to the bottom.

Jeremy – animatronics
Justin, Im going to RangerStop in Orlando in November, Any chance you’re going?
Costuming question; any advice before I dive into arduino and animatronics in cosplays? (maybe for my ironman.)

NoSpaceship – Traveling with Props and Costumes
Any recommendations on a good truck or piece of luggage to pack your costume in to fly with?

What kinda paint do you use for that Pharah blue to be so metallic and beautiful?

Danielle – Painting
Who do you look up to the most when it comes to armor painting?

Purplekoolaid87 – Time and MDF
Question 1: I love making props but at times I feel it is taking big chunks out of things that actually matter I.e School, social, family, etc. What is your advice for when you feel this way?
Question 2: I’m making the team fortress 2 shotgun, and am stumped on the pump and the receiver bits for it. I’m making the majority of it out of mdf and pvc pipe. Any tips?
