    I was thinking this would work great...

    So when I was deployed to Iraq, I got a similar ballistic helmet upgrade kit. It was pretty comfortable on an issued military brain bucket, so I was thinking it could be used in a Fett bucket. What do you think? Anyone tried it yet?

    I think they would both be good the BLSS looks pretty good and looks prety comfortable.
    give it a go

    Funny, I was working on the same thing for my phase II cone and Asok Jango...here are some links:

    I like the 4-point chin strap harness. i don't like the idea of my helmet coming off easily. I like a costume to be as functional as possible.

    Great thinking SNate! I was in the sandbox from 2007-2008

    Don't like chin straps...I may still have a few connections in Cali for these. Possibly free. I will keep you guys updated. If I can get them for free, I will get as many as I can and hand em' out to you guys as well.

    BTW in the sandbox:
    USMC 2006-2007 and 2008-2009
    26 months total in that stinking country! LoL

    Edit to add...
    These should be fairly easy to fabricate yourself...
    Also, I did a search for making molds...can anyone point me to a good tut? I got a zillion hits. Thanks
