    Hey everyone, I'm new around here and currently working on my first costume, my armour pieces along with the rest of the body is going great but I'm really having trouble on the helmet. I've tried doing a scratchbuild and I haven't been able to get it right. So instead of just butchering through an ugly scratchbuild I've just opted to try and purchase and repaint one, but I'm having trouble finding a good one. I've seen the Rubie's Vinyl but from what I've read it is low quality and I have a substantially sized head so it probably wouldnt fit. I have a pretty low budget but I'm willing to spend a bit extra for some better quality. I'm wondering if anyone knows a good place to buy a helmet that isn't too expensive and high quality, but is still good enough for me to repaint and modify a bit. I've heard the target one is good, but I've checked 4 targets nearby and none of them have one in stock.

    Thanks.

    I don't know what your budget is but take a look at Animefan's helmet kit.
