Hi, nice to meet you . I remember quite a bit but I'm really rusty. Japanese kinda took the backburner when college started. I can still hold a conversation decently, just don't read that well anymore. Sorry for the late reply.
Um if you link some images of them but I googled it and the helmet would actually be quite easy especially with halloween around the corner. Honestly go out and buy the cheapest mask that is similar in shape, doesnt need to be the same colour just make sure there are black eye lenses and same shape. From there you're gonna sand it because most likely its going to be plastic; you're going to hand sand it with a super fine grit sand paper anywhere from 360-600 grit. Than your going to spray paint it with what I find I used Krylon for plastics and than hand paint on the details, and spray paint it one more time with a clear coat to seal the deal and voila for the helmet. Hope that helps~
Um what is it that you're planning to cosplay?
Theres a few good things I could recommend if there is armor involved!
Im canadian so unfortunately I dont know what fabric stores you have there.
Just recently started cosplaying.
I always think its more fun to cosplay when you've put in lots of hard work and dedication to your cosplay outfit opposed to just purchasing it online.
Oops I haven't updated that in forever;
Change of plans chun-li has been posted but i plan on working on it in the nearby future.
For now I'm working on my league of legends cosplay; Bittersweet Lulu.
