SO! We have a Lone Starr and a Princess Vespa... Does anyone have any ideas for how to construct Dark Helmets helmet???

I'm actually wanting to do a Dark Helmet cosplay as well sometime. For the movie, it was probably constructed using vacuum plastic forming, which is out of reach of most cosplayers.

I haven't thought of it all the way through, but I was thinking of using chicken wire or mesh for the basic shape. Then duct taping the whole thing. Doing a layer of Paper Meche and fiberglassing over that. Then using bondo until it is perfectly smooth. As for how to make the front flip up, I'm not sure. Like I said, still haven't thought it all out just yet.

A Dark Helmet cosplay would get attention / glomps at cons
