How to make a Dead Space helmet/costume?

Hi, I want to make the costume from the video game Dead Space. I want it to be durable, and good quality, but not too expensive. I would like to ask for some hints, as to what materials to use. What would be the best and the easiest material. Also, Im starting with the helmet, in case it will turn out to be too expensive, ill just stick with that and make the rest of the suit on another occasion. thank you for all your help ****note about the picture***** my helmet will have a blue film instead of the mesh and will light up like in the game. also, i plan on installing two pc fans into it, for ventilation.

pepakura files are printed and then cut out of 110 pound cardstock and then glued together 
i also have the cutter as well

i must point out that i did not create this pep file
but it has amazing detail

Hello,

Your helmet looks amazing!!

I'm making my 9 yr old son the Dead Space Rig for halloween and i'm getting frustrated that there's not very many place or sites that i can find blueprint for the suit or helmet.

You've mention something about a file that helped you make the helmet you've done. I'd appreciate it very much if you could please help me out and send me the file.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks,
Helen

dude i just joined and ive been looking every were for instructions like that if u send them to me id be gratful
I don't have an instructable on it because I didn't make it. I was asking if anyone else had any instructables on something similar. I found the pic somewhere on the internet. I am a HUGE Dead Space fan. But time and money has prevented me from even attempting to make it out of creativity. lol If I run into any leads I will for sure let you know! Good luck! -miles

I'm very curiouse. What materials did you end up using for the helmet? I can see that the visor is a mesh but I cannot tell if the helmet is foam or plastic or some sort of medium. If you lit up the mask, could you still see through it? And finally, would you be willing to sell the finished product or replica? I'd pay a pretty penny!

Hey Craft! This is not the helmet from game! Play it and look at the details!!! You`ll see it! Of course, i made a suite too :-)! My helmet is finisht and some parts of arm-armor and the rig! ( painting is under construction! I use a plastic named SIMONA ( i came from germany, don´t know how it called in the states!?!) I would like to post some pics of my stuff but it don´t work :-( !!! Good luck for your work!
Take a look at how people build halo costumes and storm trooper costumes. Vacuum forming would be a good method as it produces a light and durable end-product. It can get pricey, but in the end you'll have a satisfying costume and a very useful tool. Cardboard can be cut and shaped into structures like this. It will also be pretty light. It'll require a great deal of precision in handcrafting and it may not be very durable. This may be the cheapest method. The front details on the helmet you've shown me look like they could be shaped out of MDF or any soft wood. This would require a little knowledge in the workshop, but woodworking is familiar territory for many and you should be able to find help near home. Best of luck!
Foamie could be used for most of it. Two pc fans will probably blow your head off.
