I have been a huge fan of The Dented Helmet for years now, and have finally decided to give putting together a complete costume together. I wanted to know if you guys had any suggestions about where to start for a first helmet. I have no idea how to weld, so I figured constructing my own would be challenging at best, and I wanted to give painting a try before I purchased an expensive well put together kit.
I wanted to go somewhere along these lines: Boba Fett Don Post Helmet Customization Guide??Some time ago (2004), I stumbled upon The Dented Helmet, the definitive source for*Star Wars prop collecting and customization.?*?I eventually began some dialogue*with a member of the 501st Legion who re
Taking an inexpensive helmet and attempting to apply my own paint job to make it look better. Also, to see where I am at with painting skill and all that.
So I have two questions:
1) Is this even a smart idea to go along with, or am I going about starting this process completely wrong? If I'm going about this the complete wrong way, is there anything you would suggest me do?
2) What helmet would you suggest I start with? I would like to spend under $100
I have searched the forums, but I didn't find anything that answered these questions, so any and all suggestions are welcome. Even if they are "Kid, you're insane. Turn back now before you make a fool of yourself."
Thanks guys, hope to hear from you soon.
