    I know this is not high quality stuff like most of the stuff on here,but I thought I would post any ways.

    I started with an adult Shoei motorcycle helmet. Then I pop riveted some plastic on the sides to give the flare.

    Next I bondo'd the rear of the helmet to give it a more correct shape.

    For the visor I glued and used pop rivets.

    Then he needed a face. So I used what I had on hand. Being close to Halloween I had an extra orange pumpkin. I cut it in half and also cut the bottom off.

    My son chose Marvin's oval eyes. I drew them on with crayon cut them out.

    I then opted for fleece to glue on the pumpkin so you would not see the grooves of the pumpkin. Then I layered some white mesh and voila.

    I found a perfect shaped push broom and a small scrap dowel at Homedepot. Some more glue and a couple of screws later.

    Just please make sure he doesn't destroy the earth because we know it is blocking his view of Mars.

    Well done! Mr. Martian is always my favorite Toon!:lol

    The Helmet was meant to look big and cartoony, on me it just looks normal. He is actually normal height for a nine y/o but he is a stick.
