Hello, Here I will show you how to make your very own Bandit thug Helmet from borderlands for a convention or Halloween or just to display. When making this project you will need to make sure you print the pieces out to a scale that is correct for you. In the file The neck pieces do not need to be assembled if you are going to be making this as an actual helmet to wear.
If you need help with using the resin/bodyfiller/fiberglass ask a parent or someone responsible to help. It can be a very dangerous medium to work with.
What you will need:
X-Acto Knife and a pack or two of fresh #11 Blades (USE WITH CAUTION, YOU CAN LOSE A FINGER VERY FAST!)
Pepakura - HERE
(a program for unfolding 3D models to be printed out on paper and re-assembled)
Bandit Thug File - HERE
Superglue (USE WITH CAUTION!)
Various bits of plastic, colored foam sheets and styrene for the mouth piece and other details
2 Flashlight Ends with lenses
Paints and brushes (I used acrylics)
Fiberglass with proper mask if you want to go full safety (NOT the same mask as resin)
Resin with proper mask for full safety (NOT the same mask as fiberglass)
Dremel or other rotory tool with proper cutting attachments
Hot Glue and Glue Gun
