Lame Lemongrab tutorial by StarkRavingMaddie Lame Lemongrab tutorial by StarkRavingMaddie
Alright, so I was getting some questions about the construction of this mask... and I know this is really lame and not very well explained, but I've been really busy and this was the best I could do at the moment... Hopefully you can use it and it's helpful.

And again, if you DO use it.. then I'd love to see how your costume turns out! Link me to the pictures or something!

(Also.. just because I didn't make it clear in the picture.. the spray adhesive went in between the fabric and the foam.. )

Did you use a stretchy fabric or was it just normal fabric?

The yellow fabric didn't have much of a stretch to it... I think that could be why it got a bit wrinkly.

Ah last minute question, what can I do to make more breathing room? I'm doing the last second of his facial expression 38.media.tumblr.com/de66ee4bb3…

I decided to cut out the shape of lemongrab's head in addition to side strips by the jaw. I used the strips to glue to the other non-strip-lemongrab head which provided me space to breathe. 

I found that the spray adhesive I purchased to bind the fabric and foam together was not long lasting (also bubbled) . Either I did not put an event amount or the bonding agent needed to be stronger. I'm a beginner when it comes to cosplay. Also I was not able to make a sleeve with my cotton fabric so sticking the edges of the fabric down was a little complicated. The glues I've used were gorilla glue, rubber cement and the spray adhesive. They were all good with fabric and foam but I think I should specifically buy fabric glue next time. 

Overall if I planned this better the cosplay could have came out better. Thank you for putting your tutorial out there :D 

Picture is on my profile.

Your costume is brilliant! The expression turned out so well! XD I'm glad you were able to improve upon the design by adding additional breathing holes. 
I must confess that the spray adhesive on mine has not lasted over the years.. It was ok for the first, but it did not stand up well to wear and time, so the fabric is a bit wrinkled. :\

where did you purchase your foam? I went to hobby lobby, michaels, home depot and office depot with no luck.

I got it at a store called JoAnn. I think this was the product I bought: www.joann.com/heavy-duty-foam-…

Btw, is there any place else where I could get foam for a cheaper price?
