    So, I've officially taken the first step into the financial commitment of putting together a Judge costume from Dredd 3D. I got my helmet in the mail yesterday and spent most of the day working on it. The helmet is from the WCA (Watch City Armory) mold, which is now in the hands of Drew over at Toy Town Studios. As for yesterday's progress, I got the helmet trimmed, painted and (mostly) weathered. I still need to install the visor which should be showing up early next week and I want to do a few more washes to get the helmet to the level of grime/damage I'm aiming for. I am going for an extremely gritty, battle worn look. Attached are some progress pictures so far. Thanks for looking.

    Update as of today (4/6/15):

    Cleaned up most of the damage so it would "pop" a bit more. After looking at it for a few days as it was, I felt a lot of the physical damage and scrapes were getting lost in the weathering.

    I haven't decided yet. It would definitely make the look of the helmet more "complete" though. I'll probably start with a few smaller chips/cracks and go from there.

    Thanks! I've always for some reason been a fan of more grungy, heavy weathering. As for the beard, the Justice Department is just pretty desperate nowadays... :D

    I got the visor from Drew at Toy Town Studios, the guy that cast the helmet I have. I don't know exactly what the brand is, but I will ask him and get back to you.
