    Nov 2, 2005, 11:44 AM - Helmet under $200? #1

    I'm relatively new here and I'm thinking of starting up the project soon. As the title says I'd like to get a helmet for under $200. What are your thoughts of a “mystery” style helmet in that price range. If you have one are you happy with it?

    Thank you,
    Ben

    Mystery helmet is a great helmet but be carefull as there are alot of recasts about which can be inferior quality.btw, welcome to the forum

    Its the most important "make or break" element of the costume really...

    I would seriously consider putting a good sized budget into the bucket right from the get go.

    Thank you. I didn't mean exactly a "mystery" helmet, just a fiberglass helmet in general.

    I've seen that signature of the car-thingy before...
    have you re-joined the forums under a new name?

    MS or BM. I got my MS in the price range your looking for and was very happy with it. There is a picture of the unfinished bucket under recent posts in the helmet area if you want to see what you get.
