Just finished up a build of Egon's brain scanning helmet he used on Vinz Clortho. The colander's actually one size to big and I couldn't find the correct ceramic standoffs or chin strap but I figure no one will really care. :vinzclortho:

I'll get a build log up on my website in a few days. Spent somewhere around $40 for all the parts, the majority of the cost being hardware. Most of the wires I got from a computer power supply with the longer ones coming from parts for a GB1 ribbon cable.

Looks great.

I haven't finished one yet but I know I was getting some interesting looks trying on colanders in the store.

Build log is up on my website now: http://www.angelfire.com/pa5/jdoud/keymaster.html. It's pretty much what you'd expect. :whatever:

You are my hero for doing this. The nice folks at Target were giving me some very odd looks when I was popping colanders on my head the other night.

It looks FABULOUS. Excellent work! That's on my list of Things To Eventually Make.

I look so ripped from the back, until you see the profile view of me in the last photo.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but where did you get the colander from? Is it a particular kind of colander, or just any old metal one?

Thrift store for $2. It's the wrong size (too big) but I've since found 2 more though one has the star pattern reversed so it's not technically correct. Basically you have to hope someone in your area has one to get rid of and that you find out about it, all the current collanders for sale aren't right if you want accuracy.

There's nothing quite like visiting your local kitchen appliance store to try on their sellection collanders.

Here's one I found on ebay a while back for about $4 shipped:

FIts about right I think:

Note: It's difficult not to look insane while wearing one of these things, but I kinda look insane anyhow so...yeah.

A while back I was prowling around my parents' spacious attic, trying to find something else, but stumbled across a dusty collander and snuck it home. I checked some reference pics and saw that the star pattern doesn't match the one worn by Moranis... but then while looking for jackdoud's photobucket account of framegrabs, I revisited this thread... and discovered my collander is an exact match for the one Jack used above.

This is now my 'plan B' backup if I don't find a more movie-correct one.

I picked up a combination of 1", 5/8" and 1/2" spacers at my local Sears Hardware. I think they were 1/4" OD? Still have yet to find anything remotely close to the ceramic standoffs on the original prop.

there should be a smaller hardware store around me i can use. lowe's and home depot aren't very helpful here. i appreciate the response.

i've heard of others using bic pen tubes for this, so i think that's my back up plan.
