Fosshape® is a unique heat activated material. When exposed to heat using a heat gun, iron or steamer, this soft and pliable felt like fabric can be formed and shaped into gravity defying lightweight shapes that are perfect for cosplay. It is easily cut with scissors, is mildew resistant, dye-able, paintable and will not fray like conventional woven fabrics. Fosshape can be sewn to itself or other fabrics as a hidden stiffener, or it can be shaped into stand alone structures. For a slower, subtler, controlled shaping, we suggest using a steamer, but for more angled, extreme shapes, a heat-gun should work fine. What makes this material particularly useful in cosplay and costuming is its incredible ability to regain its shape after being compressed. A hoopskirt of Fosshape® can be squished into a suitcase and should pop back with almost no deforming.
