2 ply card is tough to cut, and could withstand an armour piercing round.....not incendiary though. Can you dremel card?

We got finished in time, Frankie cut, stuck and painted all of his costume. Stairs were a problem as well as narrow doorways, but we had a great time.

I know it's a bit late now, and probably a bit beyond the budget, but have a look at using plastazote foam instead of cardboard. It can be cut & shaped like card, but with the added advantage of being a bit more giving, and you can warm it up with a hairdryer and form it to make compound curves.

The point was (as ever) to spend as little as possible, but the foam you mention is pretty cheap and would have looked great. How flexible is it in it's normal state?

Fairly flexible, but you can buy it based on flexibility, as there are different densities / stiffnesses. I used some years ago as padding on door panels in my kit car, and covered it with vinyl upholstery cloth. It was about half a cm, and flexed easily.

You can pick it up fairly cheaply, as it is used for exercise mats.
