    Jun 28, 2011, 1:07 AM - Scratch build budget ROTJ(Kinda) Helmet #1

    Ok so I am pretty new to TDH, I have been lurking around many, many, many of the community's awesome forum posts, and this is the fruit of my labors so far. This is my scratch built helmet I have started using WOF's AWESOME templates and Antman's tutorial. I used thick matte board for the main structure and smoothed out the dome with some spackling paste. I know the paint job is far from movie accurate, this is my first (of hopefully many) helmets and just wanted to get a feel for the process, also the reason the right ear it basically gone. It was hours of frustration and I feared that if I continued to attempt the ears i would probably punt my helmet out the window. lol So I opted for a much less complex design. I am happy with the look for now especially since ! only paid a total of about $40 bucks for the whole deal...so far. Just wanted to see what you guys think, but remember this is my first real venture in the costume making realm (so be gentle lol)
