As the title reveals, I'm going to attempt at my first helmet build ever and had some questions. What I am looking for is tips and guides.
A little backstory, my goal is to do a ROTJ costume and have set myself a project time for 11 months.
The reason why i chose to start with the helmet is because it''s the one area I don't really have much exp. and honestly the helmet looks to be like a challenge.
So I done some research and got a tip to this site which now everything got way more easier (thank god for ya'll)
After reading some posts on the helmet it's seems to be be diffucult to build one, my goal is to have one in platsic.
From what I understand I need to build a cardboard model and create a mold out of it so that I can create a plastic model from it, which to me also seems to cost a bit.
My question is what does it cost to build your own helmet vs. buying a helmet that I can paint myself ?
That is the only part i could consider buying since i lack the "expertise"
