Okay, it's EXPENSIVE and difficult to make one out of resin and such if you don't have the skills.

I made one that looked alright for my cosplay using a motorcycle helmet and modifying it. Any questions, just comment! I put as little 'text' as possible and more understandable pics in case other people who don't understand English can understand. This method works for me but you can substitute a few steps if you have other kinds of materials that are suited for it. I have an X-wing pilot helmet made somewhat like this too and I probably should put up that tutorial... Heh.

The tutorial is huge so save it somehow and view it using a picture viewer so you can see details and such easily.

Oh my fraking goodness! Thanks for the awesome idea! I want a Power Rangers helmet so bad but I refuse to pay 300+ dollars for one and the tutorials on Youtube seem to need a lot of items. With your tutorial I can actually make a "street legal" Power Rangers helmet and be the envy of every scooter driver!

So you just used a basic biker helmet as the base and then just added the rest on top of it?

The irony of using putty to make a Power Rangers helmet is not lost on me XP.

Is it possible to use this tutorial as a guideline for making a Kamen Rider helmet?

Man, it's been a while since I checked here but YES. I used the same method for other characters not of the Power Ranger sort too.

I have a question, the blaster in the final picture, did you buy it? Or make it? And if you did make it may I ask how? Ive been thinking wood and foam but if you have any ideas Id love to know ^^. I plan on going as Trini, the original Yellow ranger this coming year to Anime Detour, and if possible Kakkoi con.

I bought it on ebay. But I know you CAN make it out of foam more. I'm more partial to using foam and then wall putty instead of wood. For the gloss bits, you can paint it over with acrylic type of paints or even laquer.

Oh, by the way: How do you make the rest of the suit?

THAT, I got a tailor since I don't have a machine for lycra! The other bits, well it's mainly finding white shoes and then white gloves and pvc and such to make the extra bits.
