About the course
In this class you will learn how to work with the foam, including several tools you probably already have to work with it. You'll learn some basic pattern making, and how to cut, stack, sculpt, and etch your pieces to add huge amounts of detail you may never have thought possible. You'll also be able to follow along and make your own cool looking helmet, and then be able to apply what you've learned into making your own super cool set of armor!
About The Instructor
Matthew has always loved building things, even at a young age. He caught the bug very early on, after attending local conventions for several years and seeing people dress up in costumes, though he never fully got into making his own costumes until a few years later, when he was introduced to the wonder that is foam fabrication.
In 2012, he made his first full set of armor out of foam floor mats and was hooked. Ever since then, he has cut thousands of pieces of foam and turned them into armor, weapons, and even gigantic costumes and creatures, always learning and improving his methods and skills.
Matthew has won several awards for his builds, including Best Video Game Representation, several Judge's Choice awards, and even Best Overall Master's Category for a costume he entered into the Intermediate Category. Participating in contests is just a fun side thing for him, however, since the more fulfilling thing for him is to share the things he has learned with other people who are interested in making something, but don't quite know where to start.
