EVA (Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate) foam is a firm, high-density foam that is softer than standard polyethylene foams. Commonly used in items like yoga mats, sports gear, and boat equipment, EVA foam is also the ultimate material for cosplayers of all levels of experience. In contrast to bulky, heavy plastics that don’t hold their shape and are difficult to form, EVA foam is extremely versatile, easy to work with, and helps cosplayers achieve a high-end, polished look for their costumes. In addition to its durability and reasonable price per sheet, EVA foam offers several key advantages for DIY cosplayers. EVA Foam is a firm closed-cell foam with a softer, more rubbery feel than our polyethylene (cross-poly) offering. Its surface squishes down when you press your fingers into it, quickly bouncing right back into place. The firm structure and UV-resistance of EVA foam makes it a great material for outdoor applications, and it is also popular for use as a Cosplay material. It weighs 2 lbs/ft³.
