Re: Borderline Trek Film

A space helmet figures into our plot quite a bit so I had to build something that would fit the puppets' heads as well as be light enough to not add a lot of weight to them. I also wanted to have the look of the 2001 astronaut helmets without actually copying them directly. I also don't do mold making or sculpting, so I'm limited to using mostly-found objects in construction.

Here's the 2001/2010 helmets:

And here's the one I made from a large plastic Easter Egg and an IKEA garbage can:

Still work to do on it, but I think it's coming along nicely! The paper visor will be replaced out with a plexiglass one after I paint it.
