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 1: Materials Needed

-Neoprene Fabric (I used an old wetsuit that was donated by a friend)
-Sewing Machine (If you don't own one you can do it by hand, but it takes a long time)
-Printer and paper (For the templates)
I finally got around to making the <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-Superhero-Mask/ " rel="nofollow">Mask Instructable</a>. This might interest some people looking at this one.<br>
Thanks for a great set of instructions. Had to make five of these, and although it was tough to alter your pattern for a tiny 3 yr old head, it gave me a great starting off point! Thanks so much for taking your time to share! You are super rad!!
<p>Thank you so much for this! I need to make this and the goggles before my trip to California next summer! </p>
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!
Awesome! It's great to see The Aquabats influencing another generation of kids in such a great way! <br> <br>Thanks for sharing your story!
Pinch and roll bro!!! <br>
you look like ricky fitness!
Woohoo! Super excited that the mask instructions are now up! Going to see The Aquabats! this Saturday and I'm making anti-negativity helmets for everyone in my group!!
Awesome! I'll be going out to the show in LA on the 11 of February. Maybe I'll see some homemade helmets there, too!
Now you need to build the belt and get a tight shirt!!
if the op doesnt get to making a tut for the belt and shirt ill post it. im making at least the shirt tomorrow and ill take pics and such, and if i can get some nylon ill do the belt too.
Heh, thanks for all the feedback. Go for it!<br> <br> I'm done with my Aquabats Instructables, and probably won't be making any more.&nbsp;

I've been quite busy lately, but I plan on making another Instructable for the mask. <br />
I wanted the pattern/template for the domino mask!
I'll do that sometime next week. Its pretty ridiculously easy.
awesome dude, and you totally look like rocky from rocky and bullwinkle
The aguabats are one of my favorite bands. Sweet.
Awesome!! With halloween coming up I just have to find some neoprene and I'm good to go!
I didn't think the Aquabats were still around.
This is so sweet dude, good post
Epic fail. It didn't work, so I think you have to go back to the drawing board. Muahhahaa. Hahha. Jk.
Haha I love the band, and great job on the hat.
I love how accurately messy your floor is in just about every shot.
I am one big accurate mess.
You absolutely made my day!
Huzzahs All around! Great Job dude I've been waiting for you to do this for a while. This matches up with my new neoprene showing up perfectly.
