A life size 3D Ironman with light up eyes, arc reactor, and thrusters. I built him completely out of foam board and with LEDs for the lit up portions. My beginning details in black on the piece were all cut out of vinyl (which the Zing 16 Laser would've come in handy with...and I may have even been able to use it to have made this all out of PVC instead of foam board ;) PLEASE VOTE FOR ME in the GAME.LIFE 3 CONTEST and the EPILOG CHALLENGE V CONTEST!!!

Step 1: Creating Ol' Shellhead's Head

First I drew out the side pieces of the helmet onto foam board. Each side is a circular piece which is cut out with an Xacto, marked, scored and gently bent to give them their concave shape. I then drew out a slight hour glass shaped piece for the center/face piece. I marked, scored, and curved along the curve of the side pieces and fixed it into place as I went with a strong adhesive tape. Wallah...it's a head!
Ol' Shellhead is a term taken from the comic book and is one of many names used to call Ironman. I too am a big fan of Ironman, which is why I made him. Thanks for your interest!
<p>but eventhough dont call him as ol shellhead</p>
Can someone get inside
Hey, I'm a big fan of Iron Man, and I don't appreciate you calling him ol' shellhead, so if you don't mind, I would mind your mouth. (Sorry if that sounded harsher than I meant to be)
Did you use a pattern or did you just eyeball each piece when it came time to make it? If you used a pattern you should consider uploading it, if you made it, or linking to it, if you found it.
FYI, you can just click the reply button in the upper right hand corner of the comment you're replying too. This way the person you're talking to gets notified and it's a little cleaner on the page. <br>Congrats on being a finalist and a (belated) welcome to Instructables!

Only the shell of the pumpkin light was used I wired my own LEDs into it and used the same type of LEDs for the eyes.
Question: Did you also use the same pumpkin lights you used for the eyes?
Very Nice <br>Proportions reminds me of &quot;NeonGenesys Evangelion&quot; Robots (EVAs)
