Hi gang, I'm new here, for a bit more about me look at this: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f44/v...65/#post619776
So the long story short: I have a photo project to do starting in early January, and I need a decent but inexpensive Fett Helmet for it. As I mention in my introduction thread, I eventually intend on building a complete Fett suit, but for the moment I'm just looking for an entry level project to learn on. Currently my budget is tiny as hell (I'm currently also doing props for a low budget indie feature so a lot of my resources are going there), and given that it's just for a photo project I figure I'll use this as a chance to get some practice in on a throwaway helmet before I upgrade to something of reasonable quality.
My plan has been to buy an inexpensive helmet and then do a good ESB paint job on it. To that end, I've come across this one:
BOBA FETT MASK
I guess my primary question is: would I be stupid to buy this? I know very little about Fett Helmets but this one seems to fit the bill for just a photoshoot scenario. Are there better options out there for what I'm looking to do? Any general advice would be greatly appreciated.
