Since I can’t edit an existing topic to include a poll, I figured to just make another thread. 

 

So yesterday (as of this thread’s creation), I just received a new cosplay helmet.

However, the main issue here is just how to paint said helmet, and what color it should be. I’ve tried asking around every possible community I could find so far (Instagram, Discord, etc.), but there doesn’t seem to be a consensus on what color this helmet should ultimately be. 

 

In the poll, the three options are:

 

Green (the helmet’s current color, and apparently the most popular option on Instagram so far; only real issue is that I could end up being mistaken for Master Chief far more easily, not to mention that the Doomslayer’s helmet being green is a surprisingly common misconception)

 

Beige (for a more recognizable look, and supposedly the real color of the Doomslayer’s helmet; I just purchased some matte spray paint of this color, and this is the actual color of the Doomslayer’s helmet, albeit a very subtle shade of brown/beige)

 

Grayish-Black (to give my overall cosplay a more consistent palette, but I may not be as recognizable)

 

What’s your take on this issue?
