3 – 18"x12"x5mm Sheets
1 – 18"x12"x2mm Sheet
Our EVA38 Foam is the perfect primer to get started in building with foam. It's affordable, durable, cuts smoothly and creates clean edges for glueing. Start with this foam and move up to our EVA60 rolls to continue creating with supplies from the kit.
18" x 12"
A self healing cutting mat is the perfect accessory for keeping work surfaces protected from cuts and heat. Crafted from non-slip vinyl this perfect for travel cutting mat features a 11" x 17" 1-inch yellow grid with ruler edges in both metric and standard measurements, and 45°/60° angled lines.
Contact Cement Adhesive
3 oz – DAP Weldwood
Instantly bonds on contact and creates an especially permanent bond on foam, while it can also be used on a variety of other materials. Keep the lid tight to extend its shelf life or use with squeeze bottle or glue pot, although a handy applicator brush is located in the lid.
Hot Glue Gun
High Temperature Mini Kit – Surebonder
For use with 5/16 inch glue sticks, this gun features a trigger feed, no-drip nozzle, and a built in stand. Package includes glue gun and 12 glue sticks. Perfect for filling undercuts and creating textured detail work on foam.
Craft Knife Set
13 pc – Gordon
Never use a dull blade again with this multi-piece precision knife set featuring 3 handles and 10 assorted blades. Each blade design is useful for various types of foam cuts. Keep them all stored safely and securely in their very own snap case.
Foam Marking Pen
0.4mm Sakura® Gelly Roll
Nothing is more frustrating that transferring a template to foam with a pen that doesn't show up or that doesn't work properly. Stop struggling to see your pen marks or with a thick silver paint pen that never works correctly on the foam. This medium tip white pen leaves a subtle, but noticeable line every time on your craft foam.
5.5" x 8.5" Sheets
Our Medium, Fine & Extra Fine assorted sandpaper is the perfect tool to help shape fine details, refine edges and corners and smooth surfaces to take paint. Each kit comes with 1 sheet of 100 grit, 150 grit and 220 grit paper.
Gap & Seam Filler
5.5 fl oz – Kwik Seal
This bonds like a glue and seals like a caulk, strengthening joints, while allowing them to become less visible. The foam joint remains flexible and can then be lightly sanded and sealed before finishing with paint.
4 oz Bottle – Mod Podge
This non-toxic sealer dries clear in approximately 15-20 minutes and can be sanded to a smooth finish. Apply with synthetic brush or sponge applicator to avoid brush strokes. Use as a foam sealer or for a quick textured or build-up finish.
Royal 4 pc Flat Brush Set
Stock your studio with this four-piece paintbrush set to meet nearly all of your needs. This assortment includes wash, round, and shader brushes with brown Taklon fibers for versatile application of your favorite acrylic paints and sealer on foam. Clean thoroughly with cold water after each use.
3/4" x 60 yrd Roll
This is a crafting staple and we'd be doing you a disservice not to include it with your kit. Use it for taping patterns, creating templates, stabilizing hot glued undercuts while drying, painting and finishing and anything else this workhorse is capable of. We go through a roll a week sometimes!
CraftCosplay Premium Pattern
By purchasing a kit, you automatically become a member of the CraftCosplay Club, giving you instant access to free digital resources from our site. You also will receive one Premium Pattern coupon that will be sent to you upon completion of your order so don't forget to look for both the coupon and the access code in your order confirmation email.
5mm – 24" x 60" Roll
Our EVA60 is a more dense and rigid foam allowing for even cleaner cuts and exaggerated curves when heat formed. Smooth on both sides, this foam is perfect for all types of builds from beginners to experienced cosplayers.
120 v / 30 w
Perfect for burning and heat embossing detail and surface cut lines into foam, this wood-burning tool features a metal stand for propping the iron in between uses.

Mason Jar Glue Pot
4" x 4" x 7"
Never waste contact cement again!
Keep your adhesive from drying out in a glue pot with a built-in applicator brush. The clear mason jar allows you to see exactly how much glue you have left and the seal by the canning lid keeps glue airtight. Keep the rim of the jar clean after each use and you will have a long-lasting glue pot at a fraction of the cost of other teflon products.
Glue Squeeze Bottle
Sometimes a brush just won't do. Maybe you just need more precision when applying contact cement. Let our 8 oz plastic squeeze bottle help you get into those tiny, hard-to-reach spaces. The clear plastic lets you know exactly how much glue is left in the bottle.
Stainless Steel Ruler
Make this the last ruler you'll ever need to buy. This 18" stainless steel ruler has a conversion table on the back and will last a lifetime, and won't get pitted and worn on the edge like plastic rulers. Includes both standard and metric measurement units. Perfect for cutting templates and foam with craft blades.
Best full starter kit I've found, very few other things needed!
Absolutely wonderful, excellent kit, top notch value.
This is a well put together kit that does arrive with everything needed to start foam crafting. They really did think of everything and I am very happy with the purchase. Highly recommended!
Thanks to this kit I have all the necessary tools to teach myself how to make armor. Thank you for this!
These boxes are perfect. I highly recommend for anyone who is starting out in prop making. What’s great about these is they come with the basics to get you started!
This is the perfect way to begin. When I buy things I have analysis paralysis. This kit is jam packed with all the goodies you need. My daughter was so excited to get this for her birthday! We started on a project right away!
I love the kit!
Good variety for a beginning crafter.
Great starter set for my first attempt at making my own cosplay. It' arrived much faster than I expected, arrived two days after being shipped out.
Always arrives fast and with everything you need to start/bolster your kit.
