I've seen helmets made with the Pepakura files and I may do the same but it will also be a chance to figure out how to make better patterns for myself. I really wanted to understand how the helmet fit and what did it look like without the hood on. Lucky me, I have the Mass Effect Art Book and good concept references. From these I made the color coded sketch. This time I had a better idea of where all my features where suppose to be. From this sketch, I made pattern pieces.
It's not perfect but it's a start. But it's something to work from. The material I will actually use is much thicker. So it won't look so floppy.

Part 1: Visor
So much hate for the visor right now. In my previous post, I detailed my struggle with the visor.
