Hello friends!
Four months ago I bought a Captain Rex Clonetrooper helmet. Since then I've been thinking how to make a character like costume with just few dollars.

I tried to use PVC tubes, but is hard to mold and don't have a good final look.
Then I decide to use EVA.

EVA is a little miraculous material. Atoxic, scentless, colorful and cheap. It is easy to cut, easy to mold, and easy to glue!

So I decide to share this with all my Instructable friends. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm gonna post here the images found in Internet that I used to draw the drafts.

Some come from official Star Wars (R) site.
Others from models made by fans.

There are some differences between them, but you can choose the best for you.

Where did you buy your EVA? Is it foam, or sheets of plastic? I've seen people make costumes from "Fun Foam". Is that similar?

Thanks, I enjoyed your instructable.

Hello mrklaw! Yes, I use Fun Foam (EVA). Here in Brazil you can find it in paper stores. Thank you for your comment!
