any any one help me with how tomake this helmet??
hi, ive been thinking of doing a airgear cosplay and doing inuyama of the rez boa dogs, but his outfit is really simple with out his helmet,
so does any one have any tips on how to make this helmet??

Hmmm...Chicken Wire and papier mache would work and if you coated it in waterproof paint and varnish it would be both shiny and somewhat water resistant.

That's the most basic method I can think of LOL Cheap, effective and no need for heating up plastic O_O

thanks ill look in to doing some tests wuth that idea, as cheap is good, and not having to make it in plastic is even better.

Not a problem I hope it helps! I've never had to work with plastic so I wouldn't know how to do that, but I'm sure loads on here could tell you if that WAS the route you'd want to go down.

I'd also PM Alias.com because she has made some excellent props out of papier mache and caulk!

Well, This is an EXTREMLEY complicated method, but its what id do.
1. Create a 3d model of the helmet using autocad or similar program
2. Get pepekura designer and unfold the 3d model into their paper counterparts
2b. Or alternatively try to find someone who has already done it
3. Assemble the helmet in the card, then resin the outside
4. I assume you dont want to use fibreglass so you can always use melted hot glue sticks or Muslin Cloth soaked in PVA and water mix to coat the inside
5. Paint and decorate!
