She's never on here anymore. Her name was MightyMorphinPR, I think.

At this point the "best" and only way to contact her is through eBay if I remember correctly.

She has an email too, but I don't believe she replies to unknown people. Only those who she gives her email out to. As Ryuu said, best shot is eBay.

Hey Guys, I'm looking for a Green Ranger MMPR helmet for display and probably wear them once in awhile for the fun of it. The only best place I can get is from eBay. One from colorsuits, Model4hobby and Sunshine-models. Are they any good though?

I was wondering if anyone had done anything of the uniforms the team wear in Samurai when demorphed. I've been told they look like a 'modified gi', but does anybody here know anything more? Personally I think it would be a kickass cosplay if I could get it.

There isn't really a definitive place to go for this one. I've seen a couple of members on here make their own out of wood, which is really your best bet if you're able to do. If not, try to find out who made one and politely ask them if they'd consider doing one for you as commission.

Has anyone had any success with motorcycle visors for their zyuranger helmets? Visors like this for example:

What type of material mix should I use for casting? (not casting a helmet)

I'm going to be making a mould and then casting and I'm not sure what type of material mix I should get. I'd like something really tough and rigid that can be painted.

I'm currently looking at a polyurethane resin mix, but would love to know if you guys can suggest anything better.

//EDIT
I'm currently debating between Smooth-Cast 320 and TapPlastics' Polyurethane Casting Resin. Do you guys know of anything better?

Well, I kinda want to keep the details of this project on the hush hush, but let's basically say I'm wanting the most rigid and durable plastic-like mix that can be painted.
