Mass Effect N7 Armor Build!

Most armor costumes you see (ex: Iron Man, Mass Effect, etc) are made of EVA Foam, cut and glued together, dremmeled for weathering, and painted. It's flexible, strong, formable, and cheap. EVA is commonly used in interlocking foam floor tiles from hardware stores, automotive centers, and even discount stores like Big Lots or used in yoga mats. It doesn't matter what color, you're going to paint it anyway! Mad props to BioWeapons for creating the happiest set of armored boobs I've ever seen!


While Worbla is a great material, it's also totally fine just to work with less expensive EVA foam! So I added this little tutorial to my new book for Advanced Armor Making!
