Hi all. I'm finishing up my X-Wing pilot helmet, and all that's left is the lining. Right now I have a bunch of cut up yoga mat pieces inside of it, which does the job but is super ugly. I've read quite a bit about using foam, or knee pads, or other options, and I have a few questions...
If I cut my own foam, what is the best foam to use? Specifically, what is the best foam to have squished up against my forehead? I was looking at window insulation foam, but I have sensitive skin and I'm worried about having a bad reaction to industrial materials. Does anybody know what kind of foam do they use in hockey helmets?
What about after-market motorcycle helmets? I'm tempted to buy something like this:
But I can't tell if it's the right general shape or what size to get. I mean, it's $20, I could just take a chance and see what I get, but I'd certainly appreciate any advice from someone with more motorcycle helmet knowledge than I have
Any other ideas? Thanks!!
