Craft foam Thor helmet

I am making a Thor helmet for a Halloween costume that I need by Saturday. I've been working on it for several days now and I can't seem to get the right shape and it looks kind of terrible. Does anyone have any suggestions or know of any good tutorials or templates that might be helpful? I'm working with craft foam for this project. I don't really want to have to purchase anything expensive to make it or try to make it our of paper mâché at this point because I only have about 8 more hours of time I can dedicate to finishing. I did a quick sketch of what I'm going for for a reference (minus the wings which I plan to just attach after)

Thank you!

I'm afraid I stumbled upon this a bit late, but what you can do for the round base of the helmet is build up with paper mache or fiberglass resin on a ball that is similar in size to your head. Be sure you let it set for a while, though; it may crack if it's not ready. You'd also want to get spray primer and a silver spray paint, and then go in with black acrylic in all of the crevices for detailing. That's the quickest way I can think that would achieve you a round base I'm sorry.
