    I'll try my best! After I make the helmet I think I'll be done making full suits for a while. I improved my build time from my ODST build though, that took me 3 years on and off and this took about 4 months! :)

    Great job! Just a quick question: Do the strip still work if you cut the piece you need?

    You can! You can only cut them to certain length though

    Quick update!

    After a few attempts and various pep files, I finally made the helmet!
    I decided to go with the Gungnir helmet, yes the one with no visor xD
    Kind of a dumb move on my part giving up visibility but I just love this helmet so much, its awesome!
    Anyway, its not painted yet or anything, I literally just finished making it.

    And it looks great!!!!! You definitely need a handler when wearing this.....as far as visibility goes.....you might use a standard door peephole. It gives you a wide angle of vision. The down side of that is that the peephole is small......very small. Another way, a bit pricey, is a smartphone w/ a micro-camera. Someone here did it this way but I just can't find the thread.

    Another option is to buy a cheapo version of a GoPro like the SJCam and carve out a hole for the lens and a slot to hold the camera body in. You'd effectively be looking through a dash cam all day. I use an SJCam on a rail mount for my paintball gun on mission days and it's battery life is fantastic and would be able to make it through a full day at a convention.

    I did something along those lines with my first iteration of the helmet, but I did it with an old camera, the quality was meh but the frame rate was enough to make anyone puke after using it to see xD I'm pretty afraid to start carving holes in this helmet, so I might only wear the helmet for pictures

    Nicely done TheSafariMan. I always have to give a bigger kudos to those that build this helmet......you just can't see out of these w/o some serious help.....either a door peephole or a mini cam that is hooked up to a phone's camera, like a VR goggle. Great job TheSafariMan!!!

    Thanks! I gave every different way you mentioned a go, the camera connected to a phone was ok, but it was so close to my face I was straining my eyes to see clearly so I stopped. Currently I have the eye part cut out and replaced with clear plastic which is good if not a little bit restricted. Thankfully my girlfriend was with me the whole day to guide me around. It must have been pretty funny to see a small girl leading around a hulking Spartan as if he were blind xD

    I could only imagine her leading you around and something like this happening.....:

    That's not too far off Whenever she left my tiny field of vision I'd be looking around frantically looking like a lost puppy I accidentally backed up into a wall at one point too

    Did you cry?.....because I would have laughed just as hard at you as I did at this kid.......Yes I am cruel and insensitive.....I would laugh the same if it were my own kids......which I have done.

    The lack of visor really ensures the tears stay hidden xD
