Totally! I made my Shinkenger helmet thanks to this tutorial. Though I do reccomend bondo in the end process to smooth the whole thing out, after a layer or two of paper mache.

Well, probably not a lot. I can't remember what size my first purchase was..... but ever since, I've been going to gallons, which are a little over $18 at WalMart (bought one yesterday).

I'm sure there's a size smaller than that though. (Maybe a quart?) Get it and try. What's the worst thing that can happen? You'd have to go back to the store and buy another one. But that wouldn't affect your project at all, because it's just fine to bondo this stuff one section at a time.

It's a great tutorial! I made my Splash Woman helmet with it and I'm impressed.

I don't like pissing away a lot of money on a cosplay unless it could generate income, so cheaper is better for me. Fiberglass resin kits (Bondo) will cost >$25 each, so a cheaper option would be great if anyone knows of one (besides clay.... that can crack, especially if packed tightly in a bag).
I'm gonna be making a gundam using eva foam sheets (and mats) and a covering layer of Daytona Vinyl. All based on the concept used by Goldy:
The issue is whether foam sheets can adhere to cardboard (FW's helmet) well. I pray hot-glue will due the trick. If not, then plz someone direct me to a material or adhesive that can handle a little punishment.

As far as I know, when you use hot glue to adhere craftfoam, first, the glue will be hot enough to melt and form a permanent bond with the foam, so I will take A LOT to break it. I've also used hot glue for cardboard and it's extremely durable.

Stuck on step 5, please help!

I'm stuck on step 5 of the instructions, I don't know if I'm overlooking something but does each piece that I cut out supposed to be half of a curve? Also, when I'm tracing the lines for the piece, I don't see how I can mirror it for the opposite side of the piece without having two unproportional pieces. I'm so confused! X.x
