    Have been browsing and browsing in the forums here but am unable to find any good help and tutorials about building a bio mask/helmet with EVA foam, even step by step videos are hard to find on youtube

    also curious if anyone has done armor with eva foam?

    Pepakura is completely compatible. I’ve run it on vista, xp, 7 and now run it on windows 10

    SwedePredator Yes pepakura is a good technique...I have done since 2 years almost costumes with EVA foam....first you need a foam cutter (Exacto, cardboard kniffe or simply scisors ) you will also need Foam lolllll now there is a variety of thickness, 2 mm, 4 mm, 6 mm, 8mm 10 and 12...etc...the most i use for huge armor stuff is 10 or 12 mm....then you have the smallest crafty foam (2 mm) wich is very handfull....you will need a glue gun with hot glue sticks, a heat gun for making your shapes (forging the shapes), Dremel for sanding and creating battle scars..........I tend to not suggest spray cans because of high risks. I prefer to suggest a airbrush....(acrylic paint)........ hope this helps
