    Re: My Briareos(Appleseed) Helmet

    Here is an example of the light(s). This one is yellow(only one I have right now) and is not lit in the pic but the light kit will be green or red. It's a LED. 7 lights will be in the light kit. 5 in front, 2 in back. The one for the center eye will be placed behind the clear lense and be detachable for when you want to wear it and see through it. Will be attached to a portable power source. This light kit will be available in the finished helm price, and for those who want the raw cast I'll include it for my cost.

    I have a question... What are you going to be making these Helmets for?
    For a Halloween Party?
    For the sake of making it?

    Re: My Briareos(Appleseed) Helmet

    I would love to finish the whole costume for this halloween, but I'm afraid that won't be possible. To many parts to make. I'll probably have the helmet done and shoulder armor, and I might just cheat the rest of the costume for now, close enough. But I've really fell in love with this characters style and do plan on completing the whole costume. Next year!
    But I do it for the sake of making it as well. It's an art form, I'm a sculptor, helps me express my talent and gain some fans while not being judged. Well, at least I've gotten nothing but positive feedback from here and therpf. Thanks!

    Oh so you are making the Full costume! Awesome. Yeah, you should use the full one next year. Chuck Norris would not even be able to do it before Halloween.

    Wow! This is Awesome! But it looks like it could get hot in there, Do you think there's any room for fan/s and battery compartment after some padding?

    Re: My Briareos(Appleseed) Helmet

    I got my first pull! As you can see, some minor clean up is to be done along the seam line, also in some areas there will need to be some filling of air bubbles in the deep parts of the mold (eye details ), where the material trappped air. I primed the mold with sandable primer, then I used a brush on urethane ( shell shock ) for the print coat and backed it with fiberglass. It is very strong and feels like a football helmet. Vision is good as far as seeing thru the center lense. Plenty of ventilation with the openness under helmet, and room for small fans if neeed. Room for the light kit as well, power pack tbd. Moving on to the clean up and attaching the ears, when I get a clean shot all post again! WooHoo!
