Skyrim iron helmet by cloudstrife597 Skyrim iron helmet by cloudstrife597
This is the Skyrim helmet I made :D :heart:

how I made it:

~first I built the pepakura model out of cardboard (I had to modify it a bit because it was too big for my head)
~after I covered it with paper mache
~I modified the eye holes a bit
~I covered everything with a mixture of paper and clay (well I should have used real paperclay instead. It would have been more lightweight!)
~I put some glue layers to make it sturdier ( I know maybe I should have put resin instead of glue, but I hate that thing it stinks and spoils all my paintbrushes >.< )
~ I painted it

So you can see the result, maybe I'll make a full Dovahkiin costume ^^

Wow! Great job! I'm making a cardboard version of the helmet too, but I have no idea how to make the horns. Any tips?

Well... I made mine with a papercraft model, so maybe you can get inspired by it (you can easily find it on the internet) or trying to make them with a different material, for example Model Magic: it should work well as it's a paste easy to shape and it becomes very lightweight.

for the metallic part, I mixed silver and black acrylic paint and for the horns, I used a mingling of white,yellow and brown. By the way,good luck for your helmet! ^^

What colors did you do for the horns? I'm trying to color mine but can't figure out a decent color to make them look like horns!

Looks absolutely awesome!
