Hello everybody.I wanted to start off by saying that the stuff you guys do here is beyond amazing, being a Star Wars fan all my life its beautiful to see one of my favorite characters come to life. after a long period of a mix between preperation and procrastination I am finally ready to star my Fett.
As of now I dont have the money to buy the really nice fiberglass helmets or the DP's on ebay. So at a local shop today i bought a Rubies Deluxe helmet.
After some modding and a proper paint job it should come out to look great. I just wanted to ask some advise from the memebers here as to whats the best way to shape the Rubies helmet?
I'll have pics up soon

Welcome to TDH! You'll find lots of great info here on doing a costume.
Congrats on your first helmet! If you use the search function and just type in rubies, you should come up with lots of threads about those helmets.
One thing I've read about people doing is epoxying a metal "craft ring" into the bottom of the helmet. It's the type of ring used for embroidery or needlepoint. From what I've read, it helps to keep the helmet's shape.
I helped at SDCC '08

Its a sickness im willing to catch8)
heres some pics of the Bucket i have as of now, compared to some of the other nightmare rubies I've seen mine i dont think is too bad, thus should make it easier to form.
