    The best solution would probably be to install a craft ring

    they do sort of return to their original shapes... you can put a metal ring in the helmet to help support it... take a look at this thread:

    HI Silver and welcome to TDH!! .......

    I am not by any means the SW expert, but I can try to help if I can.

    Make sure you gets lots of input before purchasing any costume items. By looking around here, you will be able to discover who and what is the best to acquire for your costume and who and what to shy away from. There is A LOT of debate on what is "screen accurate" but don't let that scare you off. It can be intimidating, but it can also be amazing. Dive in and if I can help, send a PM. I am not here everyday, very busy at work, but I do check in regularly.
