If you have time to wait, I will be offering some of these for sale. Right now I am taking orders for Endor Trooper Vests in the Costuming and Prop forum (only visible to full members).

I used the soft helmet pattern...it seems so big around the ears. I haven't sewn in the ear cups yet. Wondering if there needs to be padding behind the ear areas?

Thanks!

This is a Friendly FYI:

A problem with the patterns that were posted for making your own AN-H-15 soft cap replica,
is that the original real visor on the AN-H-15 Flight helmets was never included in the patterns.

You can see how much material is missing from the forehead when comparing to these real AN-H-15 soft caps:




Some soft cap replica makers have assumed that the missing visor is not needed and sewn the larger (Movie added) visor directly to their soft cap replicas.
Sewing the large visor directly to the soft cap replica pushes the front of the Donut helmet up and is usually the primary reason why the Donut helmet is often rocked back really far in many costume submission photos. (And get turned down by the costume judges.)
The screen used large Movie visors were attached to the Donut helmet, Not to the AN-H-15 soft caps. So it was easy to adjust the height and angle of the Donut helmet.

The original real visor is an essential component of the soft cap's dimensions, which covers the forehead and also provides a comfort layer to help protect the forehead and keep the Donut helmet from digging in.

You may add another piece of material to your soft cap to replace the (real) visor that wasn't included in the patterns. It needs to come down at least an inch or more below the existing front edge of the soft cap pattern.
It doesn't necessarily need to stick out like the real visors do, it just needs to come down more and cover the rest of the forehead.

Now, when I make my soft cap replicas, I have modified my patterns to include at least an additional inch of material at the front, so it covers most of the forehead.


This eliminates the need to add a smaller visor, and you can still finish your replica the way that the tutorial shows.

Thanks for the information! I'm new to sewing and that cap gave me a lot of trouble. Especially the bias tape. Doesn't mine seem to stick out on the sides too much? I used cotton duck. Is that too stiff?
