From - missmonstermel:

Pre-orders for the Seraphim biomech helmet will open SEPTEMBER 23rd at 6PM central time. The helmets themselves will be priced at $130+ shipping with optional ears at $30 a pair. These are intended to be made and delivered in time for Holiday pre-orders ( though keep in mind- life happens and there could be delays!)

A lot of work and expense went into the sculpting and production of this piece. It was made as a personal project, something i wanted to make for myself. This Do It Yourself blank is being offered for purchase in a small production run. Painted and finished masks may be offered occasionally, im not 100% sure yet.

A word on the fit of this piece: Since i made this to fit my own head, the helmet will need to be modified to fit larger craniums. The width is suitable for most heads but there is a part on the back which curves inward that can present an issue. Luckily, the back of the helmet can be cut off for a better fit. It could then be re-attached using elastic to stretch and hold or just be discarded. I will post how to modify the back once the pre-order is live.

I will also post a picture of a finished , painted version of this mask once the pre-order is live- complete with cabochon eyes!
