I've started on a TRON version of the helmet, using my existing mold. The chin has been reshaped to be more angular, and I'll be cutting out the ear insets to match the smooth ones shown in the movie preview art. Work so far:
The inset visor helps to reduce the visual "weight" of the piece, making it more scaled to my size:
You can see the channel carved along the inside of the helmet for the visor here:
And together with a few raw pulls being shipped this week. I tried mixing some of the sanding dust from the pink helmet into the resin for the purple one as I was slush casting. Turns out resin dust makes great filler for rotocasting! That one only took 2 cups as opposed to the 3 in the others. Nice budget saver, using otherwise garbage as filler.
Probably won't make the release night, but I'd rather do a good job than a rushed one.
Edit: geez, even 500px wide breaks the forums?

Looks awesome as always... Judging from the "behind the scenes" stuff from YouTube however, I'm not so sure that the ear insets are so smooth after all (see screenshot)...
At least it doesn't seem to be completely flat inside?

Resin dust makes a great filler. Unfortunately it will absorb moisture from the air if stored too long and then when you try to use it the resin will foam up and ruin everything.

if he used spray tint go buy something called Goo Gone, that stuff ripped a good chunk of tint off for me.

Check it out - TRON rear dome! This is actually a re-purposed FRONT dome, trimmed to fit this cavity.
