I like the idea of using foam-core. It is pretty easy to cut into nice shapes, including curves, with a sharp razor knife.

Sometimes it can be had cheap, if you find a place throwing some out with beat-up corners or printing on it.

Sandwiching that in fiberglass sounds pretty easy - just a big sculpture project!
