Step 2: Getting Started
Getting started with Poe's helmet is simple. You will need a bike helmet to build the overall shape using cut cardboard pieces.
Full Material List:
Round classic bike helmet
1/4 x 1/4 Washers
Black matte spray paint
Acrylic paint - Black, and silver
Paint pens - red, black, silver, and white
Sharpies - black, red, and yellow
Step 3: Creating the Helmet Shape
To create the shape of the helmet you'll just need to draw and cut the shapes that make up Poe's helmet design.
Following reference photos is key to the success of this part.
Step 4: The Lenses
The lenses of Poe's helmet are yellow, and most safety goggles aren't yellow, so my solution was to simply color in the safety goggles with yellow sharpie.
Step 5: ...The Rest!
For the rest of the helmet's details watch the video! Makes explanation simpler, and more visual.
But here is the finished product once the tupperware, craft foam, and paint is applied.
Even better: It's wearable!
Step 6: Conclusion
Once you've watched the video the steps are all fairly simple once the foundation and shape of the helmet is made. All up for artistic interpretation and freedom!
