    The foam looks super awesome but you don’t get that super satisfying metallic clinking noise. I wonder how hard it would be to do with aluminum 🤔 I don’t know how hard it would be to get the right color with aluminum either

    Another technique to peak foam is to fold and gently score the foam with the back of the blade, not the sharp side. I learned that by working with thin sheet styrene.

    Many years ago when my 25 yo son was around 7 or 8, he said that he wanted to go Trick or Treating as a Knight. I saved back dozens of 1 gal. plastic milk jugs and hand cut out hundreds of "fish scales" from the plastic and hand connected them all together and mounted them over a tee shirt so they would flex an move as he did. Just before I was going to spray paint them silver/black after lots and lots of man hours and many cramped fingers and hands, he told his mother that he didn't want to be a Knight anymore. His mom took a flat twin sheet cut two eye holes with scissors and he went T & T as a ghost. I promised him that I would never again go to such an extreme to make him a costume.
