This looks cool.
It is probably illegal almost anywhere you are required to wear a certified helmet, any modification invalids the certification. Although you might get away with modifying only the flip-up face, if it is removable. Apart from the law, I really wouldn't want to wear a helmet that has been sanded down, thinning the protective plastic.
Please make an instructible showing us how this was done, this is after all instructables.com.
It could be interesting to see the results of using the same method to modify welding helmets/face-masks.

Only 19/50 states have helmet laws for adult riders.

Great design, I was curious though, is that a full face helmet that you molded that too or is it your own design completely? probably not the brightest question but still, gotta ask. also what did you use to make the design onto it?

Yeah its my own design, I took A full face helmet with a flip up face and took the front part off.

oh ok, I see what you mean. what substance is that molded with? and how did you make the lens?

author
timeport216 (author)HickLife2012-04-17

smooth on mold and fiberglass. there's no lens, its open. i just wear glasses with it

author

It definitely has the oni look. Great work, timeport216, could you write up an instructable on it?

author

NICE! I love the Oni mask look. I would look at some traditional masks and paint it based on one of those.
