Red Hood aka Jason Todd (New 52) - DC Comics





Planned for Anime Expo LA. Jason has to be my favourite out of the Bat family and I like the New 52 design, so as long as the helmet goes well, this cosplay will be taken with me ^^.

EDIT 26/06/13

The costume is complete enough for AX but I will be improving upon it and redoing parts for when I re-wear, so am leaving it as in progress for the now

Progress Journal

17th June 2013

Red Hood nearly complete

That's the helmet complete, and the top pretty much complete. Added the collar, but didn't make it to tight just in case. I can't say I'm over the moon with how the progress is going, but it could be worse. Just need to sort out the gun belt and holsters and it's a finished cosplay

Helmet getting there

Finally got the full helmet together and wearable, just need to start cleaning it up now and adjusting certain parts to sit better and such. Also will hopefully blend the various bits of worbla together better.
Sadly in getting this of the sculpt my head cast slip in two XD. At least I don't need to use it again too soon lol

Managed to make a start on smoothing out and cleaning up the Helmet by applying foam pieces on top covered in Worbla and so far so good.

Helmet restarted

Sadly due to the slush cast not working out I've had to go back to the start and resculpt. This time using worbla and bit piecing it together in parts

22nd May 2013

Helmet progress continued

Finally got the back casting piece of the sculpt and give or take the minor bump it's retained the shape and ridges of the back. Just Need to strengthen the the front a little more and I can release that as well XD

Helmet progress

After trying and failing to make the Hemlet with Worbla, I'm going to try the slush casting approach.
So I've sculpted the helmet, covered in a few layers of latex and now started on covering it in Plaster to make the casts I'll use for the slush casting. Just need to buy some more mod rock tomorow to finish of the casts.
