ok so this is the finished repaint. as u can see its really not too shabby! i mean there are amazing prop builders on deviantart who just could blow this away in a 1 day build im sure, but most of us dont have those talents and we have to make do with what we can.
so as far as the animated film goes, under the RED hood, the detail (oddly enough) was more involved than the comic (under the hood) version. i sorta liked the feel of the animated one, and i thought that was definitely the helmet i wanted for my costume.
so if ur like me and u wanna go red hood this fall (or w/e) but u can't build helmets for shit, this is a VERY easy fix that has some pretty decent results for ur helmet issue.
this 2 piece helmet/mask from disguise is available on amazon for about 30 bucks all in all after shipping, and if u got some spray paint and a sharpie ur in business.
i'll put up a couple of versions of the costumes, im gonna mix gloves/boots and jackets to get a feel but i hope u dig the results.
