Bonehead costume

As we all know, boneheads came from Inframan:


But those super soldiers need to be represented by the masses:


So we found some motorcycle helmets and started making the conversion:


The original Motorcycle helmets used have been identified, but when you find a close enough helmet for $5 its hard to say no.  Despite my crappy bondo work...

Can't wait!

Related:  Does anyone know for use if they're using those plastic femurs and cutting them in half, or actually using those "bone through the head" novelty things?

The actual life jacket is a Super Soft PFD/Life Vest that was painted white and had side sections cut out:

But due to the fact my wife and Smits wants to wear them at a con in two weeks, they are making the jackets from scratch with floormat.

I'm loving this! 

You say the correct helmet has been identified.  Would you mind sharing images/info of the exact helmet here?  I'm, er... asking for a friend.  ;)

It helps that the wife is involved.  She tapped on her friends who became professional costume designers due to their cosplay work for help identifying the parts.

The official helmet does not have the visor rivets, but they have them without:
