The Mortal Kombat Legacy Scorpion Costume I made was a great success. But its too serious to wear to costume parties. I want to make some castle crashers costumes for a sweet group theme. I think i can pull it off before Halloween. They seem simple enough. The tunics will not be a problem but I have not decided on what the best way to do the helmets are. any ideas?
Here is what they look like..

with the size of those helmets id suggest 5 gallon paint buckets, maybe even some small plastic trash cans. either seem like they would be around the right size and shape to start with as a base

I feel like this costume theme would be great if you've got a group of 8 year olds, considering the proportions.

Hard to get that badass yet cute factor when you are 6' tall, IMO

I like JaceAce's bucket idea, or foam that you could heat form around a bucket

5 gallon bucket might be a good place to start. i was thinking maybe bigger, as i am proportionally taller than the characters. I am going to try to gather materials this week. should begin helmet on thursday.

I think im going to have to make this a budget build. Time is against me. Sewing is going to take too long. Im thinking 3 layers of cloths. long sleeve black shirt (bottom), Short sleeve Gray shirt (middle), XL or XXL white tank top for the top layer. Black sweat pants. Then i need to get a Blue + sign and either sew it on or glue it. idk yet. and a Blue belt to go around the bottom of tunic. then its Foam shield, sword, and probably poster board helmet. I would love to do this as top quality as i can (wait till May or June for the next convention im going to) but I need to balance school work into this also.
