Hey guys,
I'm trying to find a pattern (or advice) on creating a flight pilot helmet.

The character (with the helmet) is Chell from Portal 2 (http://thevirtualunderground.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/chell-portal2.jpg). The game she is from hasn't been released yet, and not until next February, so her costume is still likely to change, but I want to start gathering materials. ^^
So after some research, I have found flight helmets similar to hers, but they're like $1000 and not in the right color.

Does anyone have experience with creating form-fitting helmets like this?
Any fabric suggestions?
Similar patterns I could work with, or an already-existing hat I could mess with to look like Chell's helmet?

Thanks! :sunny:

Why not just modify one of those old russian tank helmets? Or even use a real flight helmet?

An old ex soviet Mig helmet or padded tank helmet would do the job. Plenty on eBay. Would need painting though.
