    May 22, 2007, 10:44 PM - A hemlet for fun ^_^ #1

    It's like I don't need one but... couldn't help myself had to make one. And the good part is that if it comes out looking bad... then oh well fun while it lasted.

    I'm making it out of foam core and paper mache XD
    Here's what I have so far:
    (the tape is kinda just holding things in place so it doesn't like explode)



    Everything I'm using is just stuff that's laying around in the house. As a guide I used this: http://www.instructables.com/id/EB96DTBQ13ES9J6YYX/
    dude made it out of cardboard.








    Once I'm done making the dome I'm going to pretty much coat the whole helmet with paper mache. When it dries I can pretty much sand it down to be smooth and then add the details.

    XD

    Yes, many people here have made Cardboard helmets.
    I have seen ones that were really good made from PVC and some other plastics.

    Got started on the dome. I'm going to have to work on getting the sides even, either get the left haft rounder or cut the right arch shorter. I've also added the check part. I was surprised at how easy it is XD






    And then I went crazy
