Okay this weekend im hoping to start on my KOTOR mandalorian helmet made from scratch. Getting an imperial guard helmet would cost alot and would need alot of modifying so here is my idea.
Im going to get a skate boarder helmet, the round kind that fits tight to your head and isn't huge. Im then going to get some cardboard or place mat type material and make that the face plate and duck tape it to the Helmet. That leaves the sides and back of my head and neck exposed. To do that im going to see if i can get some real nice thick leather, like the kind use in Body builder belts and duck tape that all around to give flexability. Then i'll porbably get some autobody filler to make everything more smooth, and once that dries begin coating it with fiber glass to make it all one piece.
Do you think this would work? Note know that i will have to dye the leather the color i want first.
