This is an instructable documenting the process of making the helmet i did but the pattern i drew by hand and it has been left incomplete to encourage creativeness in you all pleas do not limit your self in your art. :).

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
Gather your Materials
1) Cardboard
2) Hot-glue gun

4) Bondo W/ or W/out hair
5) bondo hardener
6) Spray paint
7) 3/4" Wood board about 8" by 10"
8) 12" dowel
9) red Mahogany stain

Step 2: Design Your pattern.

design your pattern. in the pics i show the pieces and how many are needed but keep in mind that there are two sides of your helmet. ok once you have all of your pieces glue them all along the front seam. then spread them apart and put a thick bead of glue along the inside so it stays spread apart.

Step 3: Connect uper and lower jaw and crests

now once all your seams are glued and shaped connect your upper and lower jaw with hot glue. then attach the upper and lower crests also using hot glue.

Step 4: Attaching the spikes

You should use a photo of your actual build in the intro--that's the "thumbnail" photo used for browsing, etc. That intro photo's your best advertising (people do make snap judgments on what they'll view...)
