*NOTE - I recommend following the videos in the order that they're displayed on this page and not click the links to other videos when indicated unless it's for a specific technique.
If you venture out of this page and on to YouTube, it may get confusing.
I've set it up to hopefully keep it organized and comprehensive manner. *
"Where can I get FOAM?" Use google!
Search for Anti-fatigue mats or EVA foam mats / rolls etc
There are lots of EVA Closed cell foam distributors online.
I recommend getting 1/4" thickness
Kmart sells the foam I use as well. Click here!

In conclusion - I hope you've watch all the videos carefully. I hope you do attempt to make one of your own IRON MAN /WAR MACHINE costumes. It's a fun journey after it's all said and done. You're left with really something awesome to enjoy and not have to break the bank. I've built an IRON MAN foam costume for around $100 with the material used.
You can also search on google for other pepakura files. Some might even be pre modified for foam or you can just use the tutorial to learn to mod them for your own personal use.
Thank you for your time.
Build, Enjoy and Good luck!
