Hot Glue and Foam: My Super Secret Tips for Smoother Seams

Here are a couple tips to get smoother seams when using hot glue for your foam costumes.

As you may know, I used to use contact cement for my foam cosplay creations in my how to videos. I have since almost entirely transitioned over to hot glue. It has lots of advantages and some disadvantages. One thing people sometimes have trouble with is getting smooth seams where the glue squeezes out. Since most of my DIY cosplay videos go by pretty quick, I thought it might be helpful to share some footage of the whole process without any cuts.
