    Big box stores like Home Depot are known for having EVA foam anti-stress floor mats in large quantities, and often have sales on it.  You can also find these mats at most hardware stores.

    The challenge there is one side of the EVA floor mat often has a textured pattern on it that either needs to be sanded off, or flipped over so the smooth side is your "beauty" surface.

    Many cosplayers hunt around to try and find mats with as little texture as possible on the top surface, but often the "diamond" pattern is all you can find.



    If you have any foam specialty stores in your area they may stock EVA foam, or a similar foam called L200.  Or even a heavier density L300 or L400.  (the higher the L number the denser the foam)

    Here's a foam buying guide from a Punished props:  http://punishedprops.com/2014/09/30/eva-foam-buying-guide/

  • Harbor Freight is another place to grab it, they have the anti fatigue floor mats and the thinner rolls.  http://www.harborfreight.com/4-piece-anti-fatigue-foam-mat-set-94635.html   When its on sale I've gotten the 4 sheet packages for under 7 bucks.
  • Awesome! Thanks guys! ill post pics when I'm done!
