Quick & Useful Tips to Maintain Cosplay Armors

1. Maintenance of EVA Material Armors

 Eva Armor is maintained the same way as weapons, except that no matter how careful COSER is, there will inevitably be creases, especially at the joints and joints. When not wearing, try to put it in the box, and do not stack it in the packing box. As you cheerfully unwrap your new armor, try to remember how the prop master inserts and positions the armor as he packs it, because the prop master optimizes the placement of the inserts to facilitate long-distance transportation.
