You can do the same thing with aluminum foil. However, the reflective sunshades you put in car windows are more durable. The foamcore/mylar setup would be lighter but if anything brushed against the mylar surface it would tear it easily. I’ve got a 14 year-old sunshade (red/silver) that if it’s not in the car window, I’ll use it on set. It’s taken a beating and is still usable. I think I might have paid $7 for it.
