Greetings,

I have always wanted to learn how to make costumes and I'm a huge fan of Star Wars. I am a 17 year Army veteran who has deployed 4 times to a combat zone. Currently, I am a full time student at the Universtiy of Colorado Denver, going for my bachelors degree in film and television. I would like to thank you for accepting me into the forums. For my first project, I want to start with an X-Wing pilot helmet. Does anyone have any advise one where to start in looking for kits, when painting the helmet, is their room for expression or is there a set outline for painting it? I look forward to meeting everyone and I hope y'all have a great time.

Craig

Welcome aboard!

I also recommend our resident prop maker, Darth Hair https://www.facebook.com/DHPFX/?fref=ts

He's located here in Thornton

I'm always tickled on how many military folks we have in our ranks. You are in very good company, and thank you for your service.

I will third the Darth Hair helmet. Great bucket.

As far as what your helmet will look like, the common thread I heard when deciding what to do with my helmet was "It should look at home in a Star Wars movie" or "It should look proper in the Death Star trench".

This thread has a huge compilation of helmets that have been done: http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11480

Here is my helmet that I did.



You can post your design ideas and people will let you know if you are straying too far from the trench. Good luck, I just finished my X-wing a few months ago. If I can help you out let me know.
