First the gloves:
|Fabric paint got a little sploched. :P Oh wells.|
Here are pictures of the helmet process.
|Here are my supplies, sort of.|
Some pieces also have Styrene on them.
Before construction, I painted the different parts in Silver and Black.
I cut down the visor using the pepakura pattern as my guide for the size and shape. I cut a little/lot bigger than the pattern.
The inside of the visor was lined with foamies and the outside was as well, using black foamies.
Using a test head band I made, I started construction of the helmet. I ended up scrapping the head band all together later on.
|Angled cuts on the foam help here.|
The mouth piece was made with foam and a clear resin cast mouthpiece.
I left an opening so I could eventually put wiring in there.
I used velcro squares to hold the visor in, then built around that. I plan on replacing the velcro with magnets.
Glued on the mouth piece and mesh tubing I found at Michael's. Much cheaper than tubing.
The veil I found out is too small to fit over it. :( Sad, so I've ordered more fabric to make a longer one.
TAdah! On and off!
