Figured I should start a thread for this. After reading the 20" Squadt thread, i've decided to make FB Chipp as my Halloween costume this year. I got some ideas in mind but would appreciate any help, tips, advice you all may have. I decided to use a big ass acrylic globe for the helmet/head, however, since its a perfect sphere and the Squadt figures helmets are more boxy i'm gonna need to figure out how to adapt that. (any ideas?) As for the vest, i'm thinking of buyin a similar replica airsoft vest. I'll try and post WIP pics as I start the process. Any ideas as to what size globe I should go with? I know Deadmau5 uses a 14 in globe, so I definitely need to go bigger, not sure what size would be suitable tho.

Edit: dunno if this should be posted here or under Q and A.

deadmau5 uses a round sphere. its gonna be hard to mold that to fit a squadt.

Try to do it in foam. its just as light and you can cover the outside in bondo. Also remember that youre gonna need a fat body. May I suggest one of those sumo wrestler outfits with a ventilator, just color it.

good luck!

Haha you want me to look like an albino hippo?
In regards to the fat body, I was thinkin of making a human-like version, still debating on the fat body. I prolly will just use foam and bondo scratch build the head.

How big do you guys think the diameter of the head be?

Another cost effective method for the head would be paper mache. I've used it for costumes before and it's pretty light weight just a light sanding to make it smooth, anyway just an idea

And a for size I think you would have to base it off the size of the body, rather than the other way around but good luck and I'm looking forward to seeing pictures
