    Hello everyone I'm trying to do a Custom Modern Mandalorian costume from scratch. Im looking to make the helmet and armor pieces out of EVA but haven't been successful. Also looking to maybe put in an amp in the helmet. The Attached Photos are some possible looks I'm going for (Made more personalized of course) But if anyone could help me find some ways to possible get the supplies and look i'm going for. I'm working on a under $300 budget right now but once i get some more money more work will be put into it but any advice or help will be appreciated.
    thanks

    EVA is a good material for some things, but not really for what you're doing. The Mando Mercs actually ban it as a construction material, and our standards are not that high (wink wink)

    I would recommend making your armor out of Expanded PVC foamboard (Sintra) or Sterlite trashcan plastic. Both of these materials are well documented on this site. For the helmet, I would recommend making one from cardboard and then reenforcing the inside with fiberglass. Check out Antman's cardboard helmet for inspiration.

    I agree. Do a search for "trash can Fett" and you'll find some threads on it. You can also use "For Sale" signs from Lowe's, Home Depot, Wal-Mart, etc. for the helmet and gauntlets. Check out this thread for SD68's build of a Boba helmet.

    If your noggin isn't too big, you may also want to look at the recent Hasbro helmet as a base. It looks too small on me, but may work for you.

    Good luck, be persistent and "search" is your friend.
