*EDIT So you've all seen the battle damaged helmet I created (in pics below), and seeing as how I plan on making my own suit of ODST armor I'll just post my progress here. No need to start an entirely new post, right?
Hey all I've been trolling round these parts for awhile now, and using BenStreeper's vids and guidance I started working on my first ODST helmet last September. Well in a manner of months I got so far as to making a mold, but then the project just sat in my basement waiting for a mother mold. To make a long story short, my wife resparked my crafting interest, by showing me some fan made Garrus costume and I was back to the grind. This week I finally made the mother mold and did my first ever casting of a helmet. I have to say I'm pretty impressed thinking it was doomed to begin with. The cast helmet is for my friend's bday, it matches his armor in Reach of course. I posted a blog here awhile back, so if you'd like to see the early phase of the project click here. Otherwise all the photos below are of my first casted and painted helmet. It still needs some touch up, see visor, but I'm pretty happy with the results so far. My friend doesn't want a wearable helmet, so I'm happy to not have to worry about the ODST Visor conundrum.
