ok lately i've been asked alot for advise on helmets so i thought it warnted a tutorail keep in mind this is only a genral guide to the basics feel free to get as creative as you need with it to make whatever it is you need

using this mathod as a base i've made theese

Matrails you'll need
cardboard
hotglue
bondo
paints

Tools you'll need
cuty things
a hotglue glue
paint brushs
a pen or penceil

ok lets get started than

http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a241/featherweight-cosplay/tuts/ht01.jpg
1) Cut four 1" by 12" pieces of cardbaord

2) Cut two of the strips of the to fit around your forhead and glue them togather with a thrid strip to fitted to over the top of your head but be sure to leave a half inch sapce at th frond and back

3) Cut a cricle 2" across than bend the disk till it has a slight domed cruve
after that hot glue it to the bottum middle of the over the head strip

http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a241/featherweight-cosplay/tuts/ht02.jpg

4) Cut the 4th strip fitted in two pieces to the side of your head from the middle glue it on to the dick than on to the band agian leave a half inch space from the bottum edge on of the head band

5) Cut two pieces each as wide as half the cruve between two of the head strips (they should be about 7" long but thats not realy important). Bend one of the pieces untill it good and fexilbe ( don't worrie if it looks abit beat up). hold the piece agnust the inside of the over the head strip and trace the line than mirror that line to the other side of the piece afterword cut the shape out. Glue the tip to the disk and the bottum to the band agian leave a half inch gap to the bottum of the band (cup away extra if you have to)

6) Bend the second piece as you did the frist than trace the lines from the inner edge again. Cut the shape out and glue it in tp place just like step 5

http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a241/featherweight-cosplay/tuts/ht03.jpg

7) Repeat steps 5and 6 till the cap is all filled in

8) Fill the cracks of the gaps with hot glue

9) Cut a rectangle that fits around the edge of the cap and glue it to the rim it should go almost all the way around just leave a gap for your nose

http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a241/featherweight-cosplay/tuts/ht04.jpg

10) Cut away piece fro your eyes and neck as needed

11) Cut slits out as seen here

12) Pull togather the sides and glue them in place with tabs on the inside

http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a241/featherweight-cosplay/tuts/ht05.jpg

13) Make and glue a strap for the chin (make sure to leave enought room to get your nose in and out)

you might get something the looking like this at this point
http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=903080

NOTE: after this point your pretty much have a good base to build out from and make anything you like so the fellowing steps are realy only a basic exmaple to finshing soemthing with it

14) Build what ever details you may need

15) cover the cruved srufaces witha smoothing agent
like bondo than sand and of crose paint as needed

hope this has been helpful love to seen what your all able to make with it

If I was looking to build a robot with a TV shaped head like this (http://log.tenseforms.com/robotspacer/uploads/wallpaper/flcl_canti_800x600.gif), would you still recommend a base that fits securely around the head like yours (so it's not sliding down and isn't loose)? And if so, how would I attach it to the overall structure of the box?

you could probably use the tutorial to create the metal looking base and maybe the curvy part if you cover it in fabric.

As someone said... featherweight strikes again.

I've had the chance to witness the "full might" of the Strike Gundam cosplay you pulled off at CNAnime 2006 and it blew me away. Since then I've been looking at the various tutorial you've been posting on these boards... and you're just awesome.

You're the god of cardboard :rockon:

Thank you for passing on your knowledge.

Just wanted to let you know that I plan on doing this tutorial at some point. I am amassing a load of cardboard and I have a crazy idea for a costume. Thinking of doing Jagi, http://s36.photobucket.com/albums/e20/dep8648/HNK/ , from the "Fist of the North Star" anime/manga. I just need to figure out how to do the front "grill".

Well...digging around for helmet tutorials for my 300 Spartan outfit, I came upon this thread.

I shall make my Spartan helmet with this tutorial, as I followed your tutorial for making katanas for my Bleach outfits.

Double_Clawshot
03-15-2007, 08:40 PM
will this technique be useful for making helmets that require some smooth, rounded surfaces? and can you mix materials such as plastic or carbon fiber into the design? as a matter of fact, is there something more substantial i could use to replace the cardboard and make the helmet more durable? props on the
Dr. Doom helmet, though

I have never used Bondo before, and am somewhat hesitant to trying to use it, as I don't have a garage. Does anyone have any suggestions to something that might work as well as Bondo, but is more user friendly?

Thanks for the tutorial, btw! Looks absolutely amazing.

RosyPosy
07-29-2007, 06:21 PM
I've got a simular question to S.L... Do you HAVE to use bondo? I don't have access (or even money v.v) to buy it.

chris-chan
08-13-2007, 11:11 PM
if you dont want to use bondo, i dont see why something like modeling clay or wonderflex wouldnt work. of course ive never used either, so i really wouldnt know.
and im planning a skull sader cosplay and i was wondering if this would work. and for those of you who dont know what a skull sader is, heres some reference pics.

You can use drywall compound. You can buy it at your local hardware store for about $10 for 10lbs it comes premixed or in powder form. If you buy the premixed stuff you should still add some water to it, its pretty thick. You can buy the powdered stuff in 10lb bags, its usually call 90 or 45 which is how long it takes to dry. Note that it sets up pretty fast, working time of only about 10 minutes. It dries harder than the regular premixed compound and is harder to sand. You should seal the cardboard first, the water from the compound can make your cardboard soggy and deform it.

After seeing this AWESOME tutorial, I think it'd work pretty well lol... so yea, I think I will.

It's Lucy, or a Shinigami from Bleach. Still trying to decide.

::Edit:: FeatherWeight! I must ask. Do you make ALL your props from cardboard and Bondo? It's amazing -- and perfect! Lightweight, but looks rediculously amazing. You are a GOD.

::edit::

Ohhh Devi -- I see. You see, I didn't see your post before (whew, that's a lot of sees)... lol. Now I do. So yea, I guess I will be doing Lucy along with you hehehe... we'll have to compare notes if you will :D

I'm going to do episode one lucy, where she's wearing the white straight jacket and helmet.

Have you ever thought of hotglueing fiber weave to your paper bases?
Afterwards when you hit the weave with fiberglass resin it seldom has bubbles that need sanding. It may need a few touches but it would be sturdier.
Awesome tutorial by the way.

10-05-2007, 12:52 AM
I took a look through your gallery. I have to say, I'm highly impressed by your mad cardboard skills. Of course, you get that from alot of people. XD

Looking to get into cardboard prop making also :D You're my hero lol (LOVE that skeletal sword you made. Amazing <3)

MASSIVE THREAD BUMP ALERT
I love the tutorial but I have some questions. I'm doing a Daft Punk costume (for halloween) and I already have an idea of how to do the gloves, but the helmet is puzzling me to the max.

http://www.musichead.com.au/fileup/acts/homepageImages/20591.jpg

I'm gonna make a helmet like the one on the right without the expensive LEDs of course. First question: If I was to cut it out like that how would I retain the support from the structural bars?

Second: Would that be too difficult and time consuming altogether that I should just paint on the visor and drill holes for sight?

There's also a respirator looking thing on the back of the costume but I've got that down pat.

Shadowoffire123
10-12-2007, 10:06 PM
My helmet is finished and painted, but I feel like an idiot because it's a tad too small, and hard to get on. I don't think there's any way to fix it, is there?

If I'm not mistaken the structure in step 1 is only vital when your helmet is still being produced. Leave the cap and try shaving out the (+) structure

I'm about the same here. However, you just need practice and patients for this to work. Look on the bright side, at least the cardboard is cheap. Lots of that stuff around if you look.

The hard part for me is those pieces that go in on the dome. The parts you are suppose to cut as curves that fill in the cross sections. Yeah I have yet to get those perfect and my dome looks pretty "Lop Sided". I just need to give it a few more tries to get it right. I'll post more on my progress and see if anyone here can give me a hand.

Think it'd be possible to make this helmet out of it? It's a very smooth model so I kinda wonder if it would work all that well but from your examples it looks like it might with some work.

also, (i am new to this >.>) what is bondo and where can i find it?

hyunwal
09-04-2008, 05:05 PM
Do you think I can use this method to make a helmet for Kamen Rider / Power Ranger?
Like after making the base from cardboard, putting thin layer of clay and put acrylic paint over them?
I'll wait for your reply

thezeronumber
09-05-2008, 07:36 AM
I'll wait for your reply

Then you will be waiting a long time. The author hasn't replied to any posts in weeks/months!

I don't see why you can't make a helmet like that using this method. ^_^

...However the clay eludes me a little - Why clay in particular? Have you considered Bondo? - And the acrylic may peel/flake off if the helm is knocked about a little. It's a paint that makes a 'skin layer' rather than 'coat' the object in question, which enamel paint would do. Acrylic, although thinner and not as strong, isn't that different to Liquid Latex which is known as a 'second skin' product anyway. This is just speculation though, and it mainly depends on how many times you would paint the helmet, how thick it would be, if it would be knocked around a lot, etc.

If you can, maybe a mock-test with a bit of clay made into a pancake and slightly rounded before painting would satisfy this possible problem?

10-24-2008, 06:17 PM
Great tutorial, But I was wondering what was the best way to apply the bondo that you use. I have tried a couple of different ways but it always comes out clumped and I have to sand it forever.

Thanks so much!

I am already past the last step before paint: the tricky bondo x.<

My diclonious helmet is almost complete, and the unveiling will be at mid-south in a few days.

Now I'm waiting for the bondo to dry so I can start sanding and painting :D

I'm so excited to dress up as lucy and parade around in revealing bandages all macabre like without speaking.

Hokay. I haven't a picture, but I'm almost ready to bondo. I'm a tad concerned though. One side kinda bubbles out and the whole thing is kinda nonsymetrical. Oh well. If it's really bad, I'll just make another.

i was thinking plywood skeletal frame and useing foam for it, but idk...i'm skeptical on my ideas =_=;

Was planning on purchasing either a flimsy helmet for ~$16+ or an amazing solid helmet for $44+. Definitely going to try this procedure out - since I have a lot of cardboard laying around my house. xDD This is going to save me lots of money. =D THANK YOU!!!

10-02-2010, 03:56 AM
Well, probably not a lot. I can't remember what size my first purchase was..... but ever since, I've been going to gallons, which are a little over $18 at WalMart (bought one yesterday).

I'm sure there's a size smaller than that though. (Maybe a quart?) Get it and try. What's the worst thing that can happen? You'd have to go back to the store and buy another one. But that wouldn't affect your project at all, because it's just fine to bondo this stuff one section at a time.

I don't like pissing away a lot of money on a cosplay unless it could generate income, so cheaper is better for me. Fiberglass resin kits (Bondo) will cost >$25 each, so a cheaper option would be great if anyone knows of one (besides clay.... that can crack, especially if packed tightly in a bag).
I'm gonna be making a gundam using eva foam sheets (and mats) and a covering layer of Daytona Vinyl. All based on the concept used by Goldy:
The issue is whether foam sheets can adhere to cardboard (FW's helmet) well. I pray hot-glue will due the trick. If not, then plz someone direct me to a material or adhesive that can handle a little punishment.

I'm gonna be making a gundam using eva foam sheets (and mats) and a covering layer of Daytona Vinyl. All based on the concept used by Goldy:
The issue is whether foam sheets can adhere to cardboard (FW's helmet) well. I pray hot-glue will due the trick. If not, then plz someone direct me to a material or adhesive that can handle a little punishment.

As far as I know, when you use hot glue to adhere craftfoam, first, the glue will be hot enough to melt and form a permanent bond with the foam, so I will take A LOT to break it. I've also used hot glue for cardboard and it's extremely durable.

I'm stuck on step 5 of the instructions, I don't know if I'm overlooking something but does each piece that I cut out supposed to be half of a curve? Also, when I'm tracing the lines for the piece, I don't see how I can mirror it for the opposite side of the piece without having two unproportional pieces. I'm so confused! X.x
