Lär dig att göra en sombrero - av Tokah Cosplay
Fosshape is a plastic felt-like material available in different thicknesses. Its plastic fibers will contract when heated and its this property that makes it stiffer when heated. Easiest way to shape it is around a shape or something else to stabilize it during the heat-treatment.
Some word of advice though, it will not be as sturdy as thermoplastics but it’s lighter. If bent too much after heated it will lose some of its rigidity. Just treat a hat with the care it deserves =)
Creating a hat stock:
“Real” hats are often shaped around something called a hat stock and it’s exactly what’s easiest with Fosshape as well. For this tutorial we will look at how I made something as big as a sombrero for my Mariachi Reaper cosplay from Overwatch.
Because the brim is so big, it was easiest to create the hat stock in two parts: The brim and the crown.
Enjoy your great hat! Chillax and realize how well protected from the sun your eyes are. Maybe crank out that ol’ guitar hmm…?
