    Okay this is going to sound like a dumb question but with the mold how do you get the helmet to be hollow? i just don't get it.

    Slush mold, You roll the mold around with a little bit of resin in it so it spreads out thin on the inside of the mold... Does that make sense?

    Merc's Invade KidsFaire 2009! Solus Keer & Bob'ika from clan Shonare Vhekedla Invade KidsFaire coming in through the back entrance "as any good bounty hunter should" of the Jobing.com arena in Glendale Az. home of the Phoenix Cardinals, They rolled the grass out so the event could be held on the main floor, it was HUGE! There were kids every where being entertained with Camel's, Pony's, Inflatable Slide's & Play Lands, a live stage with the Kids Bop singers, Pirates, Cow Boy's & even a place to mine for gold!

    Meeting up with Jango & Collecting our first bounty on Dora & Boot's, We made our way onto the event floor where we were swarmed by Star Wars fans! They couldn't get enough of us we were a big hit. Every kid that saw Bob'ika was so envious and Loved his kit.


    When we caught up with everyone @ the booth Bob'ika was stuck on Darth Vader & with the two together it made Me smile thinking this is "just like in the movies!" it was epic. We hung out & took pictures with fans as Solus Keer made kids cry while Bob'ika was putting smiles on Everyone... This was a very exciting event, the 501st, RL & the Merc's all trooped today, we put our costumes on and joined forces to entertain, excite, intrigue, frighten & even stimulate the minds of kid's & Parents alike. I think our future event's with our Vode in these other groups will be something to get involved in!

    But every bounty hunter needs some R&R so Bob'ika went and enjoyed the event after a while..

    Those are sweet pics. Great job on the Mandalorian costume. I'm actually working on my kids helmets today. This Bondo stuff is a pain to get off. ;-)

    Are you making copies of the helmet for others? I bought a child size helmet for my 5-y/o but it was too small, so I'm on the hunt.

    Way cool! The foam is such a great idea. That should hold up for quite a few years too.
