Aquabats Anti-Negativity Helmet

Featured
You may have heard of THE AQUABATS! Yes? Well now its your turn to help make the world as Un-Negative as possible by making your own Anti-Negativity Helmet! The MC Bat Commander just loves it when all the kids out there create their own costumes to wear to their shows. Plus you can wear it around anywhere and be SUPER RAD!

From Wikipedia:
"Aquacadets are encouraged to attend these events and the band's concerts in costume. These costumes often include official rashguards, helmets, belts, and masks that are available as part of the band's merchandise catalogue, but also often consist of homemade items. Some members have even formed splinter factions such as the "Astrobats," "Piratebats," and "Ninjabats" and outfitted themselves with homemade t-shirts and other apparel to show their support for the band."

Also, I ask that you read the entire Instructable before you get too exited and just print out the templates and go.

Enough blabbering, let's get going!

Step 2: Download and Print the Templates

The templates are just direct scans from a standard letter sized piece of printer paper. So, when you print make sure the image is the correct size.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The smallest template(back) was about a half inch too short when I sewed my helmet.

MAKE IT AN INCH LONGER WHEN YOU CUT OUT THE TEMPLATES!

I know this project has been ip for some time, the last comment is in 2009, but O really wanted to share this. This instructable and the one for the mask made my little AquaCadet very, very happy for her fifth birthday! She wanted an AquaBats theme. I didn't have neoprene, we made it out of craft foam and yarn, but she loves them so much! Thank you for the instructable!
