One of the best Red good helmets I've seen for sure. Awesome work.

I'm actually working on a RH helmet/mask myself and was wondering if you could give me some details on what you used for the eyes? Also, how's the breathing and hearing in the helmet?

Thank you so much! I'm happy to hear you like it, so much. ^^

Yeah, no problem! I'm happy to help with anything you might need. 

With the method I used, it's a little echoy...but, it's easy enough to hear things around you. 
It's kind of hard for people to hear you, though. My wife says it muffles my voice quite a bit.
As for breathing, I have no problems at all. It just tends to get a little moist inside the helmet from breath. Which is the main reason I decided against doing actual lenses (knowing they would get foggy).
The eyes are simply done with fine tool fabric which I glued into the eye holes. It was the cheapest alternative I had readily available and I can still see through it and move my way through a convention hall without having too much trouble.
There's no peripheral vision, mind you...but, I can see fairly well, otherwise.

Thank you! Sorry I took so long to respond, I just had to keep this in my inbox until I got the materials lol
I'm actually trying to make the mask entirely out of craft foam. I plan to make a kind of ski mask out of spandex and then gluing the helmet foam parts onto it. Do you have any suggestions? I'm asking you since you're basically a pro cosplayer lol

Not a problem.
Uh, I'm not really a pro anything, but I do appreciate your faith in my work. xDD
I don't normally work with foam on a piece like this, so I really don't have too many tips.
I've found it to be difficult to get foam to mold properly around so many curves, at once.
I normally use foam for things like small additional pieces, armor, pouches, etc.

Ah okay I see. I haven't seen anyone try this either actually xD
I'm gonna try a combination of glue, heat, and sewing and we'll see what happens. I'll post pictures!

Please do! I'd love to see the results.
I've seen someone do a similar tactic only with paper mache in place of foam for their little brother. It seemed to work pretty well.
Please send me a link of the finished cowl and if you could share how you did it, that would be awesome too.

So in short...I failed. lol
But it's very feasible I think. I managed to do the lower mouth part of the mask fine, but getting the curve of the head was the hard part. I tried to squeeze the whole project into one night, which was a huge mistake. I should've gotten a zipper so the foam pieces could fit around my head, and some wire to make curving it easier. With this, plus a few layers of spray paint, I think it could still work. I'll keep working on it and keep you updated.
