Loki Helmet Tutorial by ConfessionsTetragram Loki Helmet Tutorial by ConfessionsTetragram
QUICK COMMENTS ;
- You don't need a foam head, you can use a balloon, ball, or a home made wig head.
- I recommend you use 'masking tape' and not clear packaging tape or duct tape. These tapes have a plastic finish that the glue from the paper mache will resist from setting in.

Part 2 isn't done yet, it'll probably be uploaded later today.

By the way, this is my first time making a helmet.
Please respect that.

So here's part 1, a few people on tumblr and FB were asking how I made it so I just threw this together.

You don't have to follow it, I just wanted to show a possible way you CAN make it.
If you have an easier way to make it, good for you. (:

Also, I haven't slept in over 24 hours I'm sorry if there's a few typos.

oh the WIG.  Gah, I've been making things like this and they often are too tight.  I never thought about putting something as a buffer to enlarge the size!

Thanks for the tip!

You explain it so well I might actually manage to do this! :) Just one question though: Can the bed foam be replaced with joga mats made out of foam?

Oh wow, sorry for the late reply!
I moved, and school was keeping me busy.

I'd love it if you would do that, if you are still interested of course.

You know what? I might even make this, for the LOLs. Loki's helmet always makes me laugh... x'D Was he come to conquer the earth, I'd be the first one to go for I'd be unable to keep a straight face... :D

Awesome! Thanks for uploading! I can't wait for part II. :)

I unfortunately, don't have a foam head. >A< Any other alternatives?

I heard a lot of people blow up balloons, or make their own head out of newspaper and tape.

Some people also used balls before but I think a balloon is better since balls are completely round and heads are somewhat oval.

Could you be a little more specific? Its kind of vague on what to do.
Reply
:iconconfessionstetragram:
I'm sorry, I thought I was pretty specific.

What steps did you think need to be more specific?

lailalailad Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012
Omg! I just reread it... It was specific I was having a blonde moment! I'm so sorry! :(
Reply
:iconconfessionstetragram:
Oh it's completely fine!
I just wanted to know so I could make it easier to understand.

If one person didn't understand, then someone else probably doesn't understand as well. It's always good to heard comments like this so I can improve my tutorial making skills! (:
