Bayonetta Progress shots by HoiHoiSan Bayonetta Progress shots by HoiHoiSan
Here's the progress photos of how I made them.

The first pic shows the rough shapes, carved from .5mm styrofoam, 3/4" PVC pipe, and 1" pink insulation foam.

Second pic, the basic contouring of the foam pieces.

Third pic, scupted epoxy clay and more of the foam details, also coated it with resin.

Fourth pic, first coat of paint!

Last pic, done!

I don't have any progress pics of the dangly things on the guns. I simply made them out of hot glue, wire, and paint. Yes, hot glue. :)

Hello! I really love them, they're beautiful and SO close to the original!

Just a quick question. What kind of Resin did you use? ^^

I used a resin clay called Magic Sculpt... but others have used a similar product called Apoxie Sculpt.  They're both more or less the same :)

I've also recently made a new set cast from a mold I made... I used

Which is a light weight resin that floats in water! :)

Is there another brand of resin would you recommend?
One that will give you very durable results?

Well, the only 2 companies I know that I've used resin from are Tap Plastics which is more west coast and then there's Smooth On that has distributors all over the country.

Oh ok cause i wanted to make a more durable set of guns.
Especially since the previous one meet an ugly fate (particularly the heel guns.)
Thanks for the info though! =)

Hmm, that's tough.  Resin, by nature, is rigid and thus brittle.  You might have luck with an isopthalic resin, such as bondo polyester resin, since those types of resin are meant to flex instead of break, but they also tend to be heavier.

Yeah i see what you mean.
Basically i'm planning to switch the Styrofoam with polycarbonated sheet (For the barrel part).
Glue them all with E6000.
Use a thick craft foam (5MM) with pink insulation foam (Though i need to make sure the E6000 don't the foam).
If not i'll use EVA foam then dremel it .
Which is why i'm stuck with the resin question.
I want to make sure nothing go wrong and make the right investment.
Thank you for all the info and patience.
Sorta also planning to make the latest set of bayonetta gun that's why i'm asking all the question.
Just to be on the safe side....^^; :stupidme:

Before making a mold and resin casting them, I used pink insulation foam, foam core board, and PVC pipes for the barrels. :)  I used epoxy clay for the detailing and it worked reasonably well.  I just used hot glue to hold it all together actually.  Once it was all finished, I coated them with many layers of glue and water or some triple thick glaze to seal them before painting.

I don't mind helping :)  Cosplay is about having fun!  If there's anything else I can do to help, let me know :)

*According to a Raiden cosplayer Craft foam will not be eaten by E6000 but probably the insulation foam.
