Winter Soldier Cosplay Tutorial Part 1 – Metal Arm – w/ FREE PATTERNS

(…but actually foam, not metal…)

Hey, everyone! I’m beyond hyped for this video, because it’s the first part of one of my dream cosplay builds” Bucky Barnes’ Winter Soldier! The whole arm is made of EVA foam with Worbla reinforcements. This project is 100% funded by donors on my Ko-Fi! I cannot thank you enough for supporting this project.

All of the patterns for this project will be free to download. Of course, they are made for MY body — I’m a 5’5″ woman — so they may need to be adjusted. However, they’ll be a good starting point for anyone making this arm!
