Hi, I'm just wondering, on another message you posted, when you used poster board for the helmet, did it collapse from getting too soggy? When I used poster board a year ago, I gave up on making an helmet all together because the poster board and all that stuff fell in. I got pretty frustrated. If it did work with that poster board, how? I'm curious after my 'encounter' with that. Please respond.

The helmet you made with ice cream cartons, could you give more details on that. I'm planning to make one.

Thanks!

Well, when I used the poster board, I used the kind with the sorta shiny side on the outside, so I guess that helped, it never got soggy on me, but I also had quite a few strips weaving through the vertical ones.

Also, I kept it upside down most of the time, don't know if that made much of a difference...

Another idea I thought of but never tried, was to get one of those hardhats (either cheap halloween ones or I guess a real one if you really wanted to) and cut off the beak of it, and use that as a base... *shrugs*

Good luck

hmm, as for the ice cream one, I found it turned out a little too squarish along the top.. I could have fixed it, but halloween came up too fast

you could also try using chicken wire, that's what I used to make my winged monkey... don't know what it'll be like to wear, but it's light, and if you mache the inside as well, it should be ok
