Help?

Alright, so, I'm hoping that it's okay to post this here. I'm making a costume and I need a little help. I'm trying to find something I can use to simulate reptile skin. I'd like to make the costume out of high density foam and cover it with something, but I'm not sure what or if that will work. I ran a test on a piece of the foam with some plastidip, but when it dried it didn't give the texture or feel that I wanted. I've tried duct taping the foam and spraying that with the stuff, but I'm not sure how that's going to turn out since the tape seems to want to wrinkle and it's not really as firm as I'd like it to be. Suggestions?
