No I meant Bondo
It's a car body filler, dries hard as rock, and fairly fast.
Used it for my HG helmet (work in progress)

I like it, nice and easy to shape, sand, and paint.
What's this glass fibre stuff you keep mentioning? is it bassically spreadable fiberglass?

There are hundreds of sites online (not necessarily for cosplay) that take you through building a Master Chief (from Halo) costume (specifically the helmet) and the process to make a Helghast helmet won't be dissimilar.
There are some truly awful cosplay outfits and examples (as your probably aware) but there is some incredible work online:
Cosplay portal gun, superb:
For an example of sheer awful design type "cardboard big daddy" into google lol.
For the record I wouldn't use filler (there may be a US/UK terminology difference here), an expanding foam (which is what he may mean) would probably be more suitable for a helmet or maybe use the internal foam padding of a bike helmet as the base for your design.
