Question Borderlands 2 - Zero help

Hey everyone. I'm planning on cosplaying Zer0 from Borderlands 2 sometime next year and I need a bit of help. It'll be my first major cosplay project and I want it to be good.

I know how I'm going to do his armor and such, the main problem is his helmet.
I have no idea how I'm going to get his helmet done, so if anyone could help, that would be nice.
I'm also sort of planning on maybe having LEDs or something to make his <3 or .

Here's a bunch of ref stuff for it. Any help is appreciated.

Ask this fellow, they made a really good Zero cosplay:
"A philosopher will ask that if a tree were to fall in a forest, and no one is around to hear it, would it still make a sound. A smart person would ask why the presence of a person determines whether or not a tree makes a sound as it falls." - Soren Alenko

Assisting as best as possible.

I'm doing the same project here, hope I can help ya in any way possible!
I've been searching every nook n cranny of the internet to get reference pics as well. Sadly I never found a single pic of his back till I found your thread... Anyways, I was looking at how difficult the helmet build might be as well and I think the best results will come from a pepakura model. Unfortunately, there isn't one for Zer0. So I'm working to develop one that will work. The front glass piece on mine will be made out of shaped plexiglass using a vacuum sealer and spray painted with window tint.

Only problem I've ran into thus far was finding the material for his first layer of the outfit. It has a light hectagon pattern to it and apparently that doesn't exist in the real world. So I went with a material used for swim wear thats elastic. Curious what your using for the outfit material.

Also, I found reference pictures online of the sword. I can post those on here if you'd like.

Hi! Well I dunno if this will help but for the suit, I would get a black zentai/bodysuit and just make the armor and add it on. Like a chest piece and arm pieces and just have them maybe velcro attach to the suit. I have no idea about the helmet....

I'd like to give you a hand if you haven't already built something. I'm a 3D modeler, and this sort of helmet is right up my alley, assuming you're willing to put in some time for proper markups on schematics. Here's a unpainted hollow rubi I built for someone that hasn't been test-bought (like 80% sure it should print), here's a letter opener, and one for shits and giggles. Keep in mind I'm new to this, so my methods will be somewhat wonky. Size limitations can be found here.
