    Has anyone tried using Smooth-On's "Dragon Skin" silicone for molding? I saw a guy on The405th use it for molding a masterchief helmet, and it turned out great. I'd like to know if it works well with the shape of the DP helmets as well.

    EDIT:
    Here's the video i watched just in case anyone was wondering:

    Check out Arduino, Its pretty much a custom electronics kit you can make practically anything out of. They have a ridiculous number of tutorials online: http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/HomePage
    there are also tons of tutorials for arduino on instructables and some good stuff on makezine. Just start researching!

    Hopefully this helps, Im not the best with the hardware side of electronics, but Ill give you what i know!

    Re: The Question/Answer Thread

    I'm sure this has been answered somewhere, I apologize in advance :P

    Anyways I'm in the process of building both Guy and Thomas costumes (No specific genre) And I'm wondering if anyone could point me in a direction of where I could find the black undergarments worn. I do have a black morph suite which seems like the most obvious solution, however the morphsuite combined with the tinted visors + lights going off in the helmet render me almost completely blind and I need to be able to be somewhat functional as this is a gig for some live music.
    I'm thinking of something similar to a morph suite that maybe has pieces that can be removed or something...?
    I've seen greenscreen suites like that, but none in black.

    Crank, when I searched a baclava, it came up with a turkish dish. Google it...

    Are you sure that is what it's called?

    Edit: I searched it again. Google "balaclava mask". Otherwise you're going to end up with the result stated above. :P

    I saw a post about this somewhere, but I can't recall where I saw it at. Does anyone know where I can buy computer fans for the inside of the helmet for a relatively cheap price?

    I don't quite remember the price but I do remember seeing small fans at Fry's Electronics when I bought my wire hair for Guy.

    I was wondering: It's about time for me to start prepping my Guy helmet for chroming, which means drilling out the side of the ears for lights. Does anyone know what size the side lights are for Guy's helmet so I can know what size drill bit to use?



    Also what is that thing in the middle and where can I buy it? I always forget what it is.

    Re: The Question/Answer Thread

    im 90% sure the LED's are 5mm (they may be 3mm, I dont have any laying around to do a size comparison). I would go to an electronics store and get LED's before you drill the holes just to be sure. And that middle thing is a black female RCA connector like in these pics


    You should be able to find them in electronics stores too (or thrift stores)
