I was feeling pretty low after the resin debacle.  I stood there hanging my head in shame...just staring at my feet.  When it hit me!  I should really put on some appropriate footwear.  Also, the floor mat.  I remember watching a Youtube video by XRobots.co.uk about making an IronMan costume where he used foam floor mats.

Using the wooden ear as a template I cut out multiple foam shapes and layered them as I did the wood version.  After the layers were bonded I coated the whole thing with wood glue.  The wood glue, so I was told, would seal the porous foam, and make a harder shell.  It did both.  2 points XRobots.co.uk, 0 points My skepticism.
