Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
PVC(At least 5 feet long)
Foam Sheathing
Fish Net
A cutter of some sort
Not Shown:
Exacto knife

Step 2: The Handle

Picture of The Handle
If you have a PVC pipe that is longer than 5 feet, cut it down and paint it. This will become the handle. You want to have many coats of paint so that the paint is completely smooth.

Step 3: Templates

Picture of Templates
Cut out the cardboard templates. There are four pieces:
A straight 11" for the middle prong
2 - 14" piece for the side prongs
12 - 2" diagonal pieces
2 - attaching pieces

Step 4: Cutting the foam

Picture of Cutting the foam
First, draw the pieces onto the foam. Using a Dremel to start the cut, cut the foam with an exacto knife. Use the Dremel on a low setting or you will lose control of it.

Step 5: Painting

Paint the pieces. Do not use spray paint as it will eat away at the foam.

Step 6: Final assembly

Glue the pieces of the head together. Then glue the head to the body. Make sure to wipe away any excess glue.

Is that first picture your finished piece? If so, wow, that looks awesome, I never would have believed that you used foam. A suggestion on painting. If you use an acrylic based paint and seal the foam, you can then spray paint on top of it. :)
