    Hey all,
    I started working on my Red Hood cosplay from Arkham Knight.
    Pretty much everything is done, except for one major thing.
    In the game, Jason's helmet is see through, which means there's no eyeholes.
    Any help or ideas on how to do this?
    Thanks in advance! arkhamredhood.jpg

    i'm no expert, but if I were to tackle this project, I would first sculpt the base of the mask, basically everything but the metal highlights. then I would mold it and cast it in a clear resin tinted red. from there if I thought it was too transparent for my liking I would give a coat of red duplicolor. the more you add, the harder it will be to see through. it will be a bit tricky to see through regardless, but that's how I would approach it. if you want to go full batman on this thing than you could add microscopic cameras to the outside of the mask and install a screen with heads up display to the inside. that would be impressive

    I highly suggest using a clear urethane resin after making a mold of a sculpt of your mask. Then either hydro dipping it or putting red fabric (Like morph suit fabric) over it.

    when making the helmet, put a plastic sheet at the front of the mask that u can clearly see out of when u put it on, cover the plastic sheet with painters tape and spray the whole thing black then take off the tape and use mesh to paint a red carbon fiber design over the entire thing, or instead of a sheet, u could do sunglass lenses or a motorcycle visor that way its tinted darker. Once u have the red painted, you'll be able to see through the front but not as clearly because theres a bunch of dots from the carbon fiber paint job, but they should be small enough that it shouldn't make a difference. Good luck!
