Here is a look back of the build. The helmet took a few days to build and I believe you could make one in three days.

I have put all my reference pictures and a 3D model on my website. Here is a link to help you -

Dax79 out!

Painted the helmet up and let it dry. Luckily the test piece I was happy with fitted inside the panel hole (Bonus).
The Emulsion Paint sealed the EVA foam and created a great base coat.
Emulsion Paint in the USA is called Laytex paint as its flexible.

I'm happy with the final look. I did decide not to add the right panel bulge as I wanted it finished for Halloween.

Video Part 2 coming soon!

I looked at pictures of the game helmet and did three tests to get the correct effect. Once happy it was time to get to it!

I cut his hole out on the front panel. Then used Polymorph from Coscraft to shape the tip of the helmet and strengthen the panel hole.
Then it was time to give it its undercoat. As I will create the 'crackle effect' I painted it in Emulsion Paint. When dry I will use PVA glue and Red Emulsion to crackle.

Here is the first part of this build in a video to help others out there make one. If you make one using my tutorial, please let me know as I love seeing other builds!

Here is a look at the back. All EVA foam added to the polystyrene shell.

I have now added the last of the EVA foam to the helmet shell.

Two years ago I created the templates (Video above) But due to popular demand I have decided to re-visit and finish him for Haloween 2018.
I transferred my card templates to polystyrene sheets to create the helmet shell.
Then I used EVA foam to strengthen the structure.
I will post more pictures on my www.facebook.com/dax79cosplay page
New YouTube Video coming soon.

No lights, No right thigh, Just a movement test of my WIP Cosplay.
More coming soon. In-depth build on my www.facebook.com/Dax79Cosplay page.
