    Jul 31, 2009, 11:31 PM - My first Helmet.... for $50 #1

    Hello everyone,
    I am a new comer here to the dented helmet and everything i have seen on this site looks amazing, hopefully mine is up to par. My helmet is primarily cardboard and Spackle.

    My construction started based of someone else i saw on another website.

    http://www.instructables.com/id/How-...ostume-helmet/

    this was very helpful to get started especially since its very low budget. i also found a cool link on youtube. that shows how to make armor plates out of cardboard as well.

    now some pics of the helmet that i have taken over the course of its production.

    Great work. I can't do nearly that well on my scratchbuilds. Welcome to the forums.

    One way to do it is to buy a skateboard helmet and then use THAT as your dome.

    If I can't get a good helmet then this will be my second option of making a cardboard helmet. Great job vod!!!
