Hi there, My Name is Robin, I'm a Mandalorian enthusiast and absolutely love the costumes and so have decided to make one of my own, but I've also decided that if I am going to make a armour set then it will be used more than for looking pretty, so I got in contact with a professional blacksmith over building me a helmet based on the NME Props Mando Stalker design that would be able to be used in paintball. The bucket as you call them will be made from a carbon/steel alloy and easily capable of withstanding a paintball round as well as the rough and tumble of battle, at the same time as not being too heavy. It'll also be made to my own measurements so not too large. however I have few concerns having never worn a helmet myself, and so I figured I'd go to the professionals and ask for some advice.
What is the visibility like in that sort of helmet and will it be good enough for paintball? also, what's some advice for keeping the helmet cool without the use of fans (they would add weight as well as being difficult to add in myself as the smith is adding for me real padding an cushioning so there probably isn't room.
So can you guys advice where I should cut a few air holes or something like that to try and keep it cool?
I'm really new here so thanks so much for responding to the newb, really hoping you guys can help me out on this. Thanks!
