I've been building this helmet for my friend Leiya Cosplay to wear at Fan expo Toronto Coming up.
She'll be cosplaying as "Celty Sturluson" aka "The Headless Rider" From the Anime "Durarara"
I initially wanted to just modify a motorcycle helmet but I realized I didn't want her to have a giant bobble head.
So I made a helmet base from scratch out of cardboard.
That way I could scale the size myself.
It's a ton more work this way, but at least she can retain the characters proportions.
So I basically had to create a functional helmet. I did have an old motorcycle helmet, so I took all the hardware from it for the visor along with the padding that I will install as well.
It's nice to tackle things at times that are a change of pace from the normal stuff I do.
I'll show you guys what it looks like when it's completed.
