Re: Another ironman foam build yup sorry another one. Finished arms June 10th 2011
Ok so I have had enough of the horrible looking halloween mask Ironman Helmet. It doesn't go with the rest of the armour, the colour doesn't match, and the texture is different. So What to do?, The way I see it is I have Three options.
1) Buy a plastic Halloween suit to match the Helmet, um,,, NO!.
2) Buy a complete Ironman armor,,, um Wife say's we can't afford that!.
3) Build a Helmet out of foam so it will match texture wise plus I can paint it the same colour as the armor, ummmmm OK, looks like this is my only real option.
So now I have to turn this............
Into one of these........
First thing first, draw some templates. I have drawn these all by hand, using pictures and a toy as reference.
Now I start to cut the pieces out one by one, and build up the helmet piece by piece.
I am only glueing a few pieces together at a time incase something needs to be altered.
Here is what I have so far.
And here is the pieces I have put together, held together by tape at the moment.
I hope you have enjoyed taking a look at my attempt at building an Ironman helmet out of foam. Will post more as soon as possible.
