Seamless Wonderflex Tutorial by lyeric Seamless Wonderflex Tutorial by lyeric
What? Whats this? Something cosplay related? And a tutorial at that!? Holy cow. :squee:

After playing around with my Wonderflex scraps tonight I found out some helpful information regarding getting rid of those seams. I'm sure you guys share my strive of seamless armor- so here you go!

I hope this helps someone out!
Good luck guys!

Does it maintain a strong hold over time or will this just get you through a weekend con?

Very much maintains over time :) Its a plastic, so it keeps its shape and does not break!

It's a material like plastic, that bends when under heat.
That makes it perfect for Cosplay works.

at normal temperatures is it soft or rigid?
does it have any practical armor value?

it's hard and endurable at normal temperatures.

I should be more specific.
how does it behave under destructive testing, like the following: [link] ?

I guess the results would be pretty much the same.
But it depends on the temperature of Wonderflex. A hot one can be destroyed more easily than a cold one.
The nail would penetrate it definitely. The hammer... well, I can only measure with my own force and I don't want to test it, but I guess it would survive it.
A machete? Maybe, if the material isn't too hot.

what is "too hot"?
I'd want the material to retain its stable properties up to at least 140dF

Too hot seems to be relative.
I wouldn't let it lay around in the sun for hours or even a half hour. And even if I wear it, I'd rather search some shaddy place.
I guess it would already start to meld under 140dF, but normally you need about 194dF.
