Cosplayflex is a thermoplastic material which can be sculpted when heated. Cosplayflex is sold in different sized sheets.
Cosplayflex gets sturdy again when it has cooled down, but can be activated by heat and shaped again.

Cosplayflex is mainly used for costuming, replications of armor, swords, jewelry, and decorative elements.  However, the material can be used for theatre and LARP activities.

One sheet is about 1 mm thick, but there are slight fluctuations that are production related.

Always keep leftovers of Cosplayflex and then heat them up again with a hot air gun, so you can knead all the pieces together and then use it as modeling clay. Also Cosplayflex can be made flat again with a rolling pin.

Cosplayflex is non-toxic and can therefore be processed indoors, even with closed windows. Our material is, however, not suitable for consumption, even if it smells delicious 😉

You can find official disctibutors on our website.

The fewer layers of Cosplayflex are used, the thinner and more flexible the walls are. However, if you use craft foam, EVA foam, or more layers of Cosplayflex inbetween, then it will get more solid.

There are videos, tutorials, and upcoming books.
We publish more information here on our website.

Since hot air guns run between 200 – 400°C, it may well happen that you can burn yourself if you don’t pay attention. It is recommended to wear long sleeves and if you want you can wear gloves, too.

A layer of Cosplayflex and a layer of craft foam or EVA is sufficient.
Better it is, if the armor is made of multiple pieces, this make the armor sturdier, since all the pieces have reinforced edges at the connected points.

We recommend to use Cosplayflex only for costuming, props, or similar projects. Even if Cosplayflex is non-toxic, we wouldn’t really use it in connection with food.
If you want to make a food friendly silicone mold of a Cosplayflex sculpt, this would be no problem, though.

Yes, the material is completely harmless and does not contain toxic ingredients and hence it’s suited for indoor as well as for outdoor work.

Depending on the room temperature it can remain shapeable from 1 minute to several minutes.
If you want to cool it off quickly, you can also use a bucket of cold water and put your Cosplayflex piece in it.

Acrylics, various paints, and spray paints can be used. But please use a primer for the base, so the paint can stick on it, so it doesn’t chip later.

Our Cosplayflex has pleasant modeling properties and it feels softer when sculpting with it. The bright color of Cosplayflex makes bumps and uneven parts immediately visible, so they can be fixed on time before painting the parts.

A very basic inventory looks something like this:
– hot air gun
– sharp and big scissors
– cutter/scalpel
– craft foam/EVA foam for making patterns

Cosplayflex sticks to many different materials, including wood and fabric. However, you should always test a small piece first and optionally attach with superglue or screws, if the material does not stick to the surface.

Certainly it can be used for LARP, but since most of the parts are painted, it would be unfortunate if the parts get broken or the paint chips during LARP activities. We recommend to make armor and props for LARP only if they don’t get damaged too much. As example props in the camp or a magician’s shoulder who has no physical contact during a fight.

Very sturdy and hard, depending on how many layers are used.

This can only be a rough estimate.
Sometimes you need more or less for a certain project. Depending on how detailed you work is, it can quickly be more than you thought you would need.

If the surface is painted and sealed rain is no longer a problem.
Only unprocessed Cosplayflex can absorb water, because it consists partially of wood filler.
During hot weather you shouldn’t store Cosplayflex in a car, because it may deform and get sticky. It can be hotter in a car than the weather outside, even if it doesn’t look like it, so be careful.

The pieces are best cut with large and sharp scissors, or a cutter. Here, the Cosplayflex can also slightly be preheated, in order to make the cutting easier.
