    Oct 31, 2008, 1:17 PM - What material do you recommend? #1

    Hey everybody! I just recently discovered this site and was so impressed by the work displayed that I decided to get to work on making my own boba helmet. But that's where I'm lost. What do you recommend I make these out of without breaking the bank or sacrificing too much quality? I'm a college freshmen, so money isn't exactly plentiful.

    I'm also doing my first year of uni. So far I've only spent 5 on materials. And it's coming out fairly sharp.

    Also check out Antman's other thread (in progress) . Same guy, but more detail and some slight differences in the way he did it.

    Also search for vacuum forming on youtube. There are a few tutorials to make a homemade vacuum form table for pretty cheap.
