Hi Chiomanri,

I would advise against a metal one, even if you can find one. It would heavy, uncomfortable and potentially dangerous if you were struck about the head.

I would look for a paper mache one (try Hobbycraft to see what is available, then look at cheaper craft stores to find a good price) and then paint it to look metalic. Spray paints intended for heavy outdoor use are good - hammerite do a chrome one which could then be aged using charcoal powder or an ink wash. Wilkinsons do a surprisingly good range of spray paints and laquers at a reasonable cost.

Once painted make sure you varnish it several times inside and out or it will gradually disintegrate with moisture - I know this from experience as my elven mage wore a mask for a while (it's an item).
