After having seen the work of TMP, and seeing the movie Iron Man, I decided that I wanted to make my own helmet/ costume. I know it will never be as good as TMP's stuff, but I'll have a go anyway.

So far I have only made a full sized faceplate from cardboard, tape and wire, but I think it looks pretty cool.

It looks a little rough, but pretty much all I did was study a picture of TMP's helmet, and the movie helmet, and started wildly cutting shapes out of cardboard, and taping them together.

I do intend to finish the back of the head, and possibly the whole suit, but after I have the basic shape in cardboard, I am going to smooth the edges with bondo.

The method of construction is loosely based on this tutorial.

There is still a HELL OF A LOT left to do.

Here is a picture.

Very cool Luke, I like your creativity! Is that thing going to be wearable?

Yep, I'm building it over a manequin head.

I'm thinking about making the faceplate removable, that's why I've made it seperately, but I'm not sure just yet.

very nice... you know you can use that as a pattern, trace it on a flexible plastic sheet (ex: plastic folder) to make a more durable mask or costume. hehe! can't wait to see the mark 1... :bigthumb: :) :)
