I guess I'm new here, well not really, I had an account but forgot the password and the emails password...fail on my part. Never posted with it anyways. Anyhow, I'm not quite sure where to post this, but I'd like thoughts on my armor so far. I just have the chest pieces done using WOF's jango templates.
The center diamond is matte black like the rest of the chest pieces, but the flash did weird stuff.
This is unpainted made of out 1/8(or 1/16 dunno off the top of my head) sintra. I attached it to my vest, made of black light canvas, using steel bolts and grommets. I'm not planning on adding LED's to the armor, but as I said I'm going to paint. I'm thinking of a black/silver color scheme.
My question is actually about the helmet. I'm a 5'3 female (yeah I know I don't look it). I'd like to make my own helmet, but I'm not sure how to go about doing that. I was wondering if you could fiberglass over a thick paper (like cardstock) and get a reasonably good looking helmet, or if you'd have to use a more durable starting form.
Any advice would be great.
