    For single piece installs it's best to practice on an egg, just go easy on the heat. When do they get back?

    design it so it can be distorted a bit. (you will have to do some heating and stretching)

    A manniquen head bolted to a table will help greatly as well. That or a friend to strap it on their head. No easy at all when it just moves around freely....

    Three pieces. Two sides that meet in the middle and then a single piece that covers that intersection. Make the middle piece something that accents the design not trying to blend it.

    Mannequin? Where to get one of those? I do have a few individuals I wouldn't mind putting a torch to their head while wrapping a helmet though. Probably take even longer though.

    3 pieces? That's just downright non-seamless no?
