So, How Do I Go About Making A Titanfall Helmet?
When you choose a helmet-making tutorial on Google, you may first need to watch and sift through numerous, and probably long, video content. You can opt for one that has tested the costume clearly so that it actually works.

For the Pulse Blade pilot helmet, for example, you’ll need things like EVA foam and tools such as a heat gun, cutter, and hot glue. You’ll need to print out the template, cut them out, and lay the pieces out on the EVA foam. Trace the cutouts on the foam and then use a sharp cutter to cut them according to the shapes required.
For pieces that need to be bent, use a heat gun so you can get the right curve, making sure to measure it right. When you’re done, put hot glue on the cut segments and apply heat with the use of the heat gun. Some tutorials will recommend that your foam cutouts have bevel sides so that you can easily attach the things together.
As to size, 3D files for Titanfall 2 templates will provide information on this. A helmet designed to be larger, whether it’s Grapple or Vanguard, may be a better choice since it offers plenty of space for anybody with a smaller or bigger head. If your head is smaller, you will need to change it, measure some padding, and secure it inside the helmet so you get the perfect fit.
