    hey guys! Been a while since I fired up a thread, but haven't had much new in the works lately. Last month my wife and I were talking about what we're planning on for Dragon*Con, and we've both been playing a lot of Skyrim. She expressed interest in making some Ancient Nord armor, and I decided to take a crack at the Ancient Nord Helmet, also the ones the female Draugr wear.

    Took about 3 weeks but I'm really happy with the results.

    The only thing I'm not entirely satisfied with is the hammering texture. I started on the top first, and it ended up being a bit too uniform, but eventually I got a bit more "random" pattern sorted out when I worked on the sides and the face plate.

    This helmet is TINY! My wife has a 21" circumference head and it will only fit pretty small ladies. I've got the molds, but I don't think anyone else will be able to wear the thing!

    Some pics from the build process for people curious about how it all came together, spoilered so this post isn't a mile long.

    Awesome work, I followed your progress on Facebook. Your paint finish really offsets the uniform hammering.

    Yeah this thing is something to see in person. Makes my scattergun and pistol look like something made from newspaper.
