Thank you so much!! :)
The fabrics I used were all cotton blends. Not exactly sure which ones, but they were in the cotton section of the fabric store! A little stiff so they’d stick out on the bottom with the ruffles.
I will definitely check for sure the next time I go so I can get you the exact name!
Giveaway’s gonna be posted once I hit 1k! We’re just a hundred away!
Please do! I can either find you a pattern myself or one that’s similar and show you how to alter it! I’ll gladly help you!
Hmm.. I would definitely give it a hard backing on the inside and out.
Head over to your local craft store and purchase cheese cloth and mod podge. Layer by layer, use the mod podge in generous amounts over the cheese cloth on both the inside and outside of your helmet (don’t do both sides at once). Keep on the layers after they’ve dried until your helmet is as hard as you want it.
After that, smooth out the outer part of the helmet by laying down a layer or two of paper mache! You can do the inside as well, if it’s too rough for you to wear.
The helmet should then be ready for a couple base coats and paint!
