View Full Version : Cubone Helm?

07-30-2009, 10:14 PM
Sooo. After quite a bit of brainstorming and discussion my cosplay group and I have finally settled on Pokemon for Anime North next year. I chose Cubone, considering it it my all time favorite.

Since we are going for the more anthro-ized approach, there were several ways to go about Cubone. Especially its bone helmet. I did a bit of poking around online and found exactly what I want to do for mine. The issue is, I have no clue what it's made of so I wouldn't even know where to start.


Anybody have any idea what they could have made those helmets out of or even how? I know I have plenty of time, I just like being ahead of the game. XD

I'd just make it out of cardboard and paper mache...easy, cheap, and sturdy!

To help you start make a lifesize sketch of how exactly you want it to look and try using that as a guide...that might help.

Plaster gauze please and thank you!.

Use a foam core (ie. insulation foam, or fun foam with 1inch thick), then wrap plaster gauze around it and voila!

Since I'm insane, I would use the thick craft foam.
There's a finishing spray paint that my friend used for Ulquiorra's helmet. It's an ivory colour with some texture to it.

Use what people above have suggested for the basic form and then cover with hearty clay or paper clay.

I'm more partial to model magic.
