    For all you prop makers out there

    Where would you suggest buying EVA foam from?

    Looking to make Ember Celica (And maybe a robot arm if I need to)

    Being new to this field myself, I suggest looking around online first to see what the price ranges are, I think the best price for EVA foam I found was on amazon by "We Sell Mats" or something, except they don't ship to Alaska T.T

    Walmart's online site sells foam too, for the second best price I found, they also deliver to a wider range.

    Most of the props I've made have been covered in paint fabric so the foam hasn't mattered as much.

    I've used EVA from "We Sell Mats" and Harbor Freight. As for props, I'm now 3D printing them.

    Cool, I'll have to check them out


    Would love a 3d printer at some point, just cost, maintenance and space stopping me really

    There's a local cosplay shop by me called Mad House Custom Costumes. They're in Sandy, UT; and I've been using them a ton in the last couple months. They sell EVA foam that is smooth on both sides, and in a few different thicknesses. Not too sure if they ship, but it's worth a shot.
