Introduction: Pyramid Head, Steampunk Style
This is my 4th pyramid head I have made. I spent about a year wanting to do this.
Hopefully you guys will like it to. Please let me know what you think in the comments!
Hot glue gun
I added some sketches I did as well.
Make sure you do plenty of research as well to get exactly what you want for it.
Step 1: Measure and Cut the Base Design
This video is where I got my measurements from. Use a yard stick, Draw with a sharpie and cut with razor blade.
Step 2: Cut Eye Holes
Take you front pieces and cut out the eyes. I measured 2 1/2" from bottom, and 2" on top and back.
Once you lay it all out, tape it on side to get a general shape of your helmet.
Step 3: Hot Glue It
With the tape in place, and the frame in place hot glue it from inside. Make sure use alot, don't get skimpy. If you are building this, I am sure you are planning on wearing it more than once
Step 4: Border
Make a piece on the front part where we measured 2 1/2" under the eye. I made it 2 1/2" and then follow the helmet around.
The top of the eye I did a 1" piece
Step 5: Spackle and Sand
All the cracks and mess ups you did you now need to fill. Let it dry and sand of the ruff edges
Step 6: Shoulder Piece
Bevel the bottom edge, and angle a 3" piece around the bottom, play with the angles a little to achieve what you want.
Step 7: Paint Round 1
I started painting it at this point to get a feel for what I wanted to add on it as I continued. Black seems to be a good base on on foam then use the color you want after the black dries
Step 8: Eyes
Measure the material that you want on the eyes. I used 2 layers, The metal part in the pic is from a aluminum satellite. The second layer on the inside I used the black sheeting you use in a garden for weed blocker.
I took the aluminum and dry brushed it gold
Now hot glue them on the inside into place
Step 9: Make Some Decor for It
I used a hole punch on sticky back sheet foam. Sticky back is good because it hard to use a hot glue gun on such small pieces. The I cut some V's out of the foam and painted them. Make sure to use mod podge to seal it and gloss it up.
Step 10: Optional! I Made a Backpack to Go With It
I had a firefighter tank pack I used for this part and layered some sheet foam to create the spine. Then I freelanced it and kept adding to what I had, none of it was planned
Step 11: Finished Product
This is what my semi-finished outfit looks like, I will still be adding to it. I cosplay pyramid head and I am adding alot more to it. I am making boots for it that I will add later.
Any questions or comments please leave them! I always like to here what you guys think!
