    The second pic is an idea.

    I would make it like a double down arrow, like instead of 1 "frown" make 2 small "frowns".

    u might think about going to target/walmart and grabbing a few cheap plastic trashcans too... Adonian, Ordeyn and Myself are all building out of trashcans and they usually turn out well if u're willing to stick it out through the heating, and shaping, and cooling... and possibly repeat. I would NOT try to make the gaunts or bu'cuy out of trashcan tho... the plastic's a lil bit too tough to do it easily.

    Make the dome using the WOF templates, VERY carefully. Cut ON the lines, which should leave you with three dome sections. Next, tape between each of the horizontal lines on the exterior (yes, on the OUTSIDE), starting on the bottom and working your way up. Then, once all three parts are complete, tape them together, again going between the horizontal lines.

    After that, as a bonus, I super tape the top of the dome-where all the points meet-inside and out, as that area is weakest.

    Then set your dome inside of the helmet, overlapping the cross-hatched lines into the helmet rim. Tape in securely, then bondglass the exterior.

    That's exactly how I made mine, and I finally printed an 80% size to make for my 9 year old boy, so gotta get to work on that too.
