Panel Overview: In this panel I will be going over the process of how to create armor using EVA-foam mats and craft foam.

Oh sounds great! I'm going to try and attend your EVA Foam and Pepakura panels.
I've made a few armor cosplays out of eva but would like to hear more about it and have always been interested in pepakura! I look forward to this!
