    hello
    this is my second post, i joind because i found the instructable on how to make a boba fett helmate out of cardboard.

    i was wondering, since there so similar. how hard would it be to modify those plans to make a stormtrooper helmte. are there cardboard plans like the boba helmt for a stormtrooper helmet?

    any info would be great, thanks

    Ummm you got a helmet off ebay and vacuum formed it to make copies

    IN case you are unaware this is called recasting...who's helmet is it that your copying maybe you should ask before you make copies.If its a defunct company like a DP helmet then I think you'll be OK but I would urge you to make sure its not a fan made or current license holders item or your in for some trouble.

    yes, like skygunbro said, you may want to re-think your approach to this hobby.
    the dented helmet and most other star wars prop/costuming communities don't support the practice of recasting and routinely black list people for such behavior. once your name is tarnished you'll find it hard to acquire the best of the best when it comes to props and costumes.

    these are mostly fan made products that start with a motivated and talented artist who puts endless hours of love into the article that you hold in your hands...
    their hard work and effort needs to be appreciated.

    What the last two said pretty much sums it up.

    Also my appologies to the topic starter I did not mean to derail your thread off topic.

    You will need to learn how to use Pepakura Designer and learn how to make pepakura objects... but once you do, this is probably the closest you will get.

    For an introduction to Pepakura for helmeting purposes:

    Any other questions, I guess ask me or Skupilkinson.... But as far as making one out of paper, or cardboard, that looks like your best bet.
