    This will be my first attempt at a full foam costume build. I'm making the helmet currently out of carsdtock just to see if sizing is correct, and as backup if my 6mm foam final version is a dumpster fire. However I think I did it too small, but we will see.

    You know for sure if your scale is wrong when you put on the cardstock mock up. If it's small/snug as is then definitely too small when built in foam.
    If there is about a finger width of space from the side of you head and the cardstock. The foam helmet might be a little snug. 2 fingers and you should have a bit of wiggle room.
    Of course this is just my opinion. I could be entirely wrong. ;)

    Nah dude, totally came out the right size .

    Well it definitely was too small, but hopefully some outside advice I had will give me more success with round 2. Should be printing and cutting tonight

    Oh, that's too bad! You could always keep the first one and make a nice paperweight out of it. Or use it as a test for a paint scheme before applying to the real deal when you make that one.


    Or just throw it away.:p

    Looking forward to this build though, I thought the SPI was kind of interesting when I read about it, will be nice to a see a "concrete" depiction of it!
