I have 2 original screen-used suit and pants (both man and woman).... there's a pic of my female Starfighter tunic here in this forum somewhere.
last summer, I hired a very talented local seamstress to replicate 3 copies for me and my family.
But it's been almost a year with no progress so...
Wow... Just Wow :eek
I was recently contacted by a customer who bought something I made years ago from another collector in Canada.
Customs was holding the item and insisting on another $400 bucks for import duties because they assume the item was manufactured in Canada.
The item in question...
I have a personal project I'm working on that will be cast in slush latex.
It's been years since I've made anything from latex. I remember some stuff I learned from my short stint working in SPFX make-up, but it's been too long and my memory is rusty :$
Anyhow, is the standard mold...
The pic your looking at is a screen-cap from the Movie before he had the custom-made helmet.
I think for the movie they had just one helmet with the leather liner.
I've never seen it used in the TV series.
My screen-used Starfighter helmet just had a thin 1/4 inch thick black foam liner all around. I'm pretty sure it had additional padding inside to make it wearable.
Most of the helmets made after the movie/pilot had the white molded styofoam liner (it's one of those bicycle helmet dome liner)...
Just got back from Academy Sports.
The football helmets I looked at costs $40 bucks... not $30 like I thought :$
I decided not to spend 40 bucks just for a few pieces of foam padding.
Gonna look around for cheaper options.
BTY, I was looking for helmet interior padding at Academy (Don't know if you have them in Tulsa but it's a sporting goods store).
I found some student football helmet with these really cool "sci-fi looking" padded liners that attaches with velcro.
I've looked on-line but can't...
