Quick and Easy Kids Mando Helmet

  A few years ago my boys decided that they HAD to be Mandalorians the day before we attened the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Christmas Parade. With about 8 hours to pull it all together, I grabbed a pair of skateboard helmets and padding, visor replacements, and whipped up a quick design on my vinyl cutter.  Here's the pattern if you'd like to do something similar for your ad'ika!

Visor Installation Tutorial

I've been asked dozens of times to post some sort of tutorial on visor installs and finally have a moment to get one done in between the "HOLY CRAP THE FORCE AWAKENS IS OUT IN 17 DAYS AND EVERYONE WANTS THEIR COSTUME NOW!" rush. There are numerous ways to trim and install visors but this is my preferred method.   It all starts with your given helmet. Now, I know some people that install the visor at the beginning of their build and then mask it off to protect it from paint, but to me it seems like an awful...
