I am making a knight cosplay with a similar style chest piece so I was wondering if you could answer a few questions.

1.  Are these layered pieces of foam and if so, what did you use to start the base piece and what order of assembly would you recommend?

2.  How did you get the shoulder guards attached?

3. How did you attach the front and back and how did you allow for putting on and removing?

Your help would mean the world to me

Very nice work - I think it definitely could work as the basis of a Batsuit!

What do you use to seal the soft/unfinished side of the EVA foam? And what kind of paint do you recommend that wont flake off due to the material underneath shifting?

You my friend are a friggin genius with talent on tap. Thinking outside the box to use floor pads to create this incredible armor, and all the other armor you've done is sheer genius. Glad I stumbled across your page.

My N7 Armor blog at: [link] shows how I am working with the Foam. After Dragon Con I will be making some videos that show in more detail how they were made.

I saw a other costume made out of EVA foam and I wondered, is the foam that smooth by it self? or do you need to make it smooth afterwords?

There are different grades and brands of foam that will give slightly different effects. The foam you see in the photo is still in its "raw" state,.. here it's only been warmed with a heat gun. (which causes the foam to expand and then shrink slightly causing the surface to become much tighter/smoother) Also many foams have surface treatments on one or both sides. (usually a patterned or smooth layer of rubber) Many can also be sanded with fine grit sandpaper or carved with a dremel.

ok, sounds as a very nice material to use as soft/under armor.
what's the estimate price of the foam?

Dirt cheap. Pack of 6 sheets, 2 x 2 foot each, 1/2 inch thick costs me about $12 USD. You can also order larger sheets to just about any size/thickness/color you need from various distributors online. Just google "EVA foam sheets".

Additional note: this is a closed cell EVA foam,.. nothing like a sponge more like a very dense rubber foam. (and extremely lightweight)

Its a giant foamy on steroids.

I'm impressed by all the armor and costumes you made-- particularly the Samus helmet.

I wanted to make armor myself so I'm curious how you do it-- material-wise and process-wise.

Awesome job.
