Reviving this thread, if anyone is interested. I'm gonna try and go to PAX AUS again this year and once more, I'd like to try some more cosplay. I have two things in mind, to either upgrade my Darth Vader cosplay, or to do something completely new, and I'm thinking about Peter Quill / Star-Lord. So I ended up buying a Star-Lord "Legends" helmet. It's really awesome, but it does have a couple of annoying things. Normally, the helmet is $200 AUD ($156 USD), but I got this one for $125 AUD ($97 USD). Still expensive, but for that price, I figured that was going to be the only opportunity to do it. A friend of my partner had bought this helmet brand new, used it once, then decided it was a bad purchase... so we bought it. It looks great, but it's not flawless. There's a few minor issues: 1 - To be expected, your peripheral vision goes out the window. 2 - It can be a bit difficult to properly put on, to insure that it's actually secured over your head. 3 - The head/chin straps are tricky to adjust. 4 - The glowing red eyes only really work when you're in a darker environment. I'm thinking about Star-Lord this year because I want to cosplay as a character I like, but also I want to wear something that's lighter and cooler (temperature-wise) than my Darth Vader suit. In saying that... I am doing some research into upgrading my Vader suit, as I want to try and 3D print the armor pieces for a more realistic, professional look. This one is a bit of an insecurity thing but I would prefer to cosplay as a character who wears a mask. I'm unsure if I want to do both Vader and Star-Lord at PAX. I think it would be better to try focus on one cosplay only. I already have most of Vader sorted (albeit I want to change/update the armor) but if I were to do Star-Lord, it means I need to spend more money on his costume... and then there's the decision, trench coat, or regular jacket. What do you all think? Any suggestions?
