Hi fellow preds,

I am new here and already ordered a monsteroom half mask and some helmet. I hope you can help and advise on how to attach the bio helmet to the latex undermask and prevent it from fall off accidentally. What do you guys and gal normally use to attach them.

And by the way, anyone know what is the mechanics or principles that holds the helmet to the preds face as it is suppose to be in the story?

I look forward to your advise.

Thank you.
David

U can use magnets attached behind latex mask and another stick to the Bio Helmet.This is how they do it in the movies
Others use velcro but must stick to mask & Helmet which will ruin the latex surface.

magnets are the way to go if you are using a full mask...that way you can remove the helmet to reveal the whole face ...however, if you are using a half mask and the purpose is to have some more breathing room while doing the bio/head combo, I recommend using industrial velcro ...you can cover more surface area that way

How do you prevent the helmet scratching the paint on the mask?

honestly, if you are wearing a half mask then the only paint that is going to show is around the edges of the bio...anything that gets covered by the helmet ...well...I guess it doesnt matter if the paint scratches. My half mask has 3 strips of industrial velcro and my own face poking out of it when the helmet is off.....when its on...I'm a pred. If you are getting a monsteroom mask ....dont worry so much, the paintjob is built to last.
