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!
Step 1: Starting point
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.
Step 2: List of Material
Things you gonna need:
- EVA - Lots of EVA sheets:
White - for torso, arms, legs and details
Black - for shoulder shield, and details
Gray - for shoulder shield, belly and details
Blue - for shoulder shield
- draft paper or newspaper for drawnings
- Contact glue and hot glue
- Velcro - used to finish the costume and fix it on your body
- A black turtleneck shirt
- A black legging pants
- A pair of black gloves
- A pair or big socks (bigger then your foot)
- Blue ink for the details on costume
- Liquid shoe wax to weather the costume
Hot glue pistol
Step 3: Codpiece, Butt and Thighs
Dress it and ask to someone to draw the codpiece, but and thighs of the costume on it.
After the last step, use a scissor to open the paints and use it as mold. Look the images attached.
