I am an absolute n00b when it comes to costume making. I have never created anything very complex outside of scavenging and creatively using odds and ends and cheap party city props for various costumes. That said, it's summer, I've got some free time, and a bit of ambition. I spent some time looking up various guides to making a wearable Boba Fett helmet, but a lot of them did not answer some key questions I had. Before I go any farther, the main question I have is:
Is there a beginners guide/article on this site? One that covers the various materials, tools, costs and skills needed to create a helmet?
I've found plenty of guides in various places, but as a costume making community, you guys know who the "big players" so to speak are, the experts, the guides that are guaranteed to be written by people who know what they are doing
Also as far as time and cost go, what are general numbers? Obviously the price could probably range from cheap to ridiculously expensive depending on how much work is being done, but as a general amount, how much can a quality helmet be made for? Same with time, I know that the more detail and quality, the more work, but in general, how often does a decent helmet usually take?
I'm sure I'll have more questions (that hopefully a good tutorial can answer for me), but these questions are necessary to decide if this venture is going to be doable in the long-run.
Thanks for any advice
