Has anybody here made a blue senate guard helmet from Ep.1? If so what did you use for the mohawk? I have checked brooms and paint brushes but can't find anything long enough. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
Thanks for the replies.Originally posted by division 6@Mar 10 2006, 06:14 PM
A number of years ago a friend of mine did a couple helmets.
He used kitchen brooms that where chopped up so they would conform the the arc of the crest.
A couple small pix from the Wedding they where made for.
After hours and hours of searching, I think horse hair is gonna be the closest thing to it. I went to Tandy Leather and they are out. I'm gonna have to try their website or another and look for a bulk rate.Originally posted by division 6@Mar 11 2006, 05:15 PM
The guy that made those was going to upgrade to horse hair.
Don't know if he ever did.
:eek That looks splendid, darthwalls. Well done. :thumbsup
Any chance of your posting a tutorial? :love
Such a simple thing to do, and yet such a smart choice in terms of applying the skills of a professional to get the look you want.I then took the helmet to my barber to even up the hair. [/b]
