Flight Helmet pattern help (Portal 2)

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. 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?

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.
