Hey guys, my friends and I cosplayed as Servbots at Fanime. However, we were forced to walk around with our helmets off because of our limited visibility. Our helmets currently use white T-Shirts for the eyes with black fabric marker drawing the iris. The idea was to replicate the black on halloween masks. We had hoped that this would be enough to see during the con, but alas it was not. By chance, we befriended the Pokemon Men and we exchanged a few ideas and such about our helmets.

Anyways, now we are planning on using plexiglass or something similar to it. We are going to heat up the plexiglass and mold it to the proper shape, use a black window tint for the iris, and maybe paint the rest white.
What I'm looking for is a better idea for the white part of the eye, or maybe another idea for our helmets in general. I was thinking about using white window tint, but I don't know how well it would look.
