Yet another new guy that has a couple (hopefully not silly) questions about helmets, hoping someone can give me some guidance.

Question 1.

Are Mandalorian emblems OK on the helmets? I've been a Merc for nearly 6 years, and would like to carry some of those logos over to this build if it's allowable.

Question 2.
For the visor, is it ok to use a color other than amber/yellow? I have Irlen's syndrome, and yellow causes me migraines. I know that smoke grey is allowable, but I'm curious if green is allowed (actually reduces my migraines). If not, I'll go with the smoke visor.

Here's some quick answers to your questions...

1- It really depends. Can you post a mock-up? the bantha skull is a definite "no," but some of the others might work. A lot depends on how they are used. Remember, this is a REBEL helmet for a REBEL costume.

2- Never seen a green visor, not sure we'd approve. Smoke and amber are the only screen accurate ones.

Hope this helps.

Very helpful, thank you.

I may do a "fun helmet" later on, but for now will focus on a more standardized Rebel design. And I'll go with the smoke visor.

Great. Don't forget to check out the "Show Us Your Helmet" thread in the Pilot forums. Lots of examples of the range you have open to you.
