  1. Dec 4, 2007, 11:16 PM - Voltaire Bacara Helmet FINISHED #1

    After starting this project a year ago, I have finally called it quits on this particular helmet. Time to move on. I finished the weathering over the weekend, which I couldn't get to in time for CIV, plus I upgraded the aerators, and added other subtle elements, as this helmet serves a dual function for both my Bacara costume and my Commander Voltaire snow clone. I also updated my blog (link in the signature below) with a full blown report on the final stage. Enjoy and as always, thank you TDH'ers for all you support and enthusiasm over the years!

    Here are a few pics:

    Commander,

    Sweet helmet!! If you ever plan on selling it, I know someone in the Capital City Squad that wants to do Bacara. Let me know!

    So does this mean the helmet will look like that in 118 years?

    Ha ha ... anyway, it looks amazing, Volt! Can't wait to see that in person (hopefully soon.)

    Here it is 5204, my next and final Bacara version, OSCS. This will be my last helmet project, ever. I am obsessed with getting this Bacara thing done right:

    Ha! So much for keeping the ol' equipment in top shape and in order! Hopefully that turkey Palpatine will boost our budget so we can get some new gear too. Some type of new designation and gear being batted around the chain of command too, "TD", any inkling? LOL

    Thanks again for the support folks! Your the best!

    Could you share some back ground on the character that inspired you to build such a awesome helmet?
    Thank you

    Voltaire!!!!!!!!!!

    You yourself have done a Snifftastic job. The Sniffer himself has admired your work from afar. You have a fine eye for detail my brother and for that there is only one thing to say . . .And one thing that can be said:

    Sniff on my dear brother! Sniff on!
