    Jan 18, 2009, 12:44 AM - NEO CRUSADER SHOCK TROOPER MASK #1

    Hey folks,

    I just started off with doing a 3D model of a shock trooper mask which I'm gonna build from scratch and then make molds of.
    The mask will be wearable by elastics to fit different head sizes. The overall head and neck section will be dyed fabric for comfortable movability.

    Here are a few pics from 3D

    No, for my actual costume, I will use the traditional helmet. I was just wondering if I could start a neo crusader costume someday

    I've just messed around with cardboard and tape and made a version of the chestplate...I think the shape is not THAT bad yet

    Caloh, you got tallent, I like the chest plate, go for it, if you cast it, let me know. I'm still interested in your boot heel and toe from your other post.

    So are you using software to make 2D templates from these 3D models?

    Yep...I allready tried to get the shape by eye, but I realized that it would be much more comfortable and exact doing it with the templates. Further its easier to reproduce them for anyone who's interested

    You mean to build more for others? It's be better and less time consuming to just build one master and mold and cast it.

    I also make my costume pieces this way, making 3D models and then 2D templates. It's a great method and better than the old trial and error scratchbuilding I'd tried in the past.

    Good luck with this.

    Gosh you're right! yes, molding would definitely be better. What 3D software do ya use, if I may ask?

    Thank's

    Due to the fact that I can't work on the costume right now, I just tried to do some paintings in Photoshop. Let me know what you think

    Why not have the mask be more of a Demi-helmet, with it covering the top of the head as well? That way you have a more stable base when you attach the fabric sections.

    Well, thats an good idea. I see....yes. Would be much more easier to keep the whole thing in place. And probably mor comfortable to wear I guess.
    Thanks!
