Hello masters. I am a newbie. I have been working on and off on my kids' Mini Avengers costumes for several months. It started with the Loki and Hawkeye suits for the Avengers premiere, then expanded to include Black Widow and Captain America for Phoenix Comicon. Those last 2 were very short notice and suffered for it.
So now, I am trying to get ahead of the game for Halloween. My roster is chaning up a bit, as Captain America will inhereit Hawkeye's vest and Hawkeye will become Iron Man. I am indebted to Indiefilmgeek for his amazing tutorials and pms, he's a class act.
So, onto the new stuff. I am attempting pepakura for the first time with my Loki helmet and Iron Man suit. I've finished the Loki pep, and applied the first outer resin layer.
QUESTION: Should I put something inside the horns before I fiberglass the inside of the helmet. Right now they are hollow. I don't want it to be too heavy, but I also don't want it to be too fragile. Any suggestions?
I've already made 2 Iron Man helms that ended up too small, so I took a break and moved on to Loki. Luckily that one fit first time. I was getting discouraged.
Anyway, I"m so glad I found this forum and have talented people to bounce ideas off of. Oh, and thanks to Stealth for the amazing Youtube tutorials, I watched a bunch of those too. They are very helpful. Glad to be part of the forums.
