Hi! I’m currently looking at cosplaying Persephone from Assassin’s Creed Odyssey but I’m a bit clueless when it comes to her headpiece, I don’t have access to worbla so I wondered if craft foam would do the trick but I’m not too sure. Any advice?
EVA foam would be fine! I would recommend a few things to make this easier on you:
– reinforce the material with something a bit stiffer and that will allow it to still flex with your face, but also hold shape easier
– reinforcing will also help with the problem of possibly needing to glue it to your face – the adhesives might tear the foam
– a thin fabric glued to the backside would work for this purpose
– make sure you shape the foam well. I would recommend a seam down the center front for that more pronounced angle like she has, but the rest of the shaping can be done with heat. If it isn’t enough to hold it, a bit of wire or thin plastic can be used as reinforcement.
I hope that helps! Good luck :]
