Heck, not only did I improvise, I also wanted a challenge. Only starting to build the helmets the night before the performance. And supposedly before my bedtime.
"Cardboard Master" as my friend calls me. I am the cardboard master. Over the years since I was a kid, I'd been playing with toilet paper rolls and random cardboard boxes that I could find around the house. Manipulating them and turning junk into toys. Fun toys for my roleplaying needs. And then who knew, I grew up to be someone who's good at manipulating it. At least that's what they think.
Now on to the instructable.... Note that this is my first instructable since I joined in 2009.
EDIT: I want to thank the editors who enjoyed my Instructable, I am now even more motivated to do more projects. Thank you!
Step 1: Getting Started.
First picture, Initial idea. I took the Guy-Manuel helmet pretty extreme. It was different and original. Thomas' however, was a little bit unoriginal.
Second picture, further tweaking of Guy-Manuel's helmet.
Third picture, further tweaking of Thomas' helmet, Which I still wasn't satisfied with.
Fourth picture, An expanded view of Guy-Manuel's helmet.
