if youre looking into making using the plastic molding method, then at this point, the only way to dumb it down would be to skip the whole building process, and simply buy a plastic copy someone has already made, and just spray paint that and start from there.
so far, my budget up to this point has cost me $260 to make the actual helmet base for the plastic molding. dumbing it down would only make the helmet look ugly, and that doesn't mean the material costs are gonna go down.
i would look for someone who already has the helmet made, so he can make a copy for you. copies are a lot more affordable than actual helmets, as they are not colored, and probably doesn't come with sea through visors, and doesnt have electronic parts to it, which costs a lot too.

the cardboard helmet part surely isn't easy, but if you do this well, you are pretty much set for the rest of the process, as this is the structure that will hold everything together.
