Hi there (again)! :D
I’m not sure if you mean the casual cosplay or the arabian version, so I guess I’m gonna answer for both of them.
In case of the ‘casual’ one and cloths covering my upper body I mostly use one of those chest binders. —> [link] They’re really easy to put on and comfortable to wear. Furthermore I’m able take them off without shuffeling off my whole costume first and that’s superhandy in my opinion. c:
If I’m doing open-chest costumes (like arabian-Rin or Kurobara) I’m using really strong duct tape (it’s called ‘Panzertape’ in German) because other tapes tend to come off really fast thanks to my skin. It’s not a solution I’d recommend though (at least not without testing it first by placing a small piece of it on your skin and observing how it reacts to the gum), depending on your skin it can be really dangerous. It works for me, but in general it’s way more reasonable to use a more skin-friendly tape (for example the ones you use for fixing bandages or patches - they work too).
No problem at all, don’t worry. C; You’re not annoying at all!
I got the styrofoam form a do-it-yourself store (it’s called Obi here but I’m not sure if that’s of any help since I live in Switzerland). Not every store has it, but I’m pretty sure they can help you there if you ask the staff.
The chipping wasn’t that much of a problem, the material itself is really stable. I suggest to use a sharp cutter though, it makes things a lot easier - mostly the cutting part (but carefully with your fingers, my left thumb had to suffer quite a lot <’D).
Carving it was actually the most easiest and fun part. It went really smooth, I was even able to carve out an inwardly curve (I used the same material to built my hands for Vi from League of Legends) pretty easily.
If you have any more questions feel free to ask me - I’m glad if I’m able to help! :D
