so ive been working on this for about 3 days now and its made of cardboard. im going up to dragoncon next weekend and ill be stopping by the engeneer guy to get some smoothcast to slosh around on the inside to harden it but im kind unsure about what to do on the top of it. i had some plumbers putty that i was using to fill gaps with but it turned out that it didnt dry so i had to scrape all of that off and started over with wood filler, but since the helmet isnt hard its started to crack in places. im trying to avoid anything that has a strong smell to it because im doing this in my dorm room so bondo isnt really an option. does anyone know of a cheep subtritute for wood filler thats stronger? anyways, heres some pics of the build.
let me know what you think and please any tips or suggestions are welcome!
