Calling all creative nerds who want to cosplay Star Wars. The Mandelorian certainly stepped up to bat against The Rise of Skywalker. From what I’ve heard, they both have quite the following, but people are taking sides. 

I’m curious which will be the more popular costume at the next convention. Mando’s helmet could be a little complicated for those who want to go as the newest bounty hunter to the Star Wars lineup.

So, fans could either pick a different character or check out this how-to video on creating a Mandelorian helmet. Whether it’s Mando or Boba Fett or another Mandelorian entirely, these step by step instructions will help any hard-core creative to build a helmet to match their character.
