    Aug 4, 2010, 7:54 PM - Starting Second costume need a bit of help. #1

    Ok so for this year I am going to make a "Steampunkish" mando, have already started making the jetpack out of pvc pipes and elbows and such, untill i get a new part for the jigsaw thats on hold, I now need some help with the color scheme and remember a couple years back there was a website or program that you could play around with colors for certain armor pieces, anyone remember what/where that was? like a Flash player type builder...

    ok so I got the second rubys jango helmet in yesterday and did some dremmel work and what not, and learning from past work, got a few ideas to improve on the installation and comfort levels, one question however im looking for some way to throw on a seal around the bottom part of the helmet, sorta like the seals on the stormtrooper helmets, anyone have any suggestions as far as what i could use that is found at a local hardware or wal-mart?

    Does anyone have a CLUE as to what this actually is used for? went to a local hardware store and they havent got the slightest clue as to what it is, IF i could narrow that down perhaps then i could refine my local searches...
