So, to clarify, there is someone out there who could provide an interested party with an unpainted cast of the helmet for a nominal fee to cover his or her production costs?

there are others out there tho, but for my money, not as accurate as this version.

Very nice. You must be very proud owning that. And you did well with the painting of it. What sort of paint did you use?

thankyou, I'm very proud and will be even prouder when I finish the bugger!

I just used a Halfords brand primer and satin black and a volkswagen tornado red..it all looked a bit sh*t til I went to town on it with some powdered graphite that gives it that lovely metallic lustre (imho anyway)

Here's how it looks up to now...still need to sort out the repirator badge properly and put in the padding...



and after a bit more hard labour on the Lawgiver I'm starting to get together the other side now..real problem is where and how to fit the electronics!!  :-[

Looks just brilliant, doesnt it.

Wonder how long it'll be, before we get see a film-accurate Dredd cosplayer doing the rounds?

It looks great as it is. Maybe a metallic spray would have worked better? Also, if you rubbed the graphite shavings over it, how did you seal the effect in? Surely it would rub off with handling?

no metallic paints tend to look like ...well..metallic paint basically, I've used it before on star wars replicas and it end up looking fake.

The graphite needs a good rubbing and it kinda seals itself.

As for a screen accurate cosplayer it might not be too long, there's guys working on the vest, shoulder armour and belt kit but I'll tell you now this is one EXPENSIVE cosplay project!!!!

I'm not sure when I'll get started on the rest of the costume, it's primarily a Lawgiver/Helmet/Badge combo at the time being. The new movie costume is a very pricey endeavour if you're going to do it properly.
