    Got hooked on Elder Scrolls V just recently and wanted the iron/dragonborn helmet real bad. I wanted it quick too so making one out of real cast or iron sheet was out of the question. So I turned to my favorite medium as far as making costumes is concerned: foam rubber. It was simple enough to make, with the horns being the hardest just because there were a lot of sections. Although I did not copy the horn design in-game specifically as they remind of intestines. Instead I made the sections larger and more scale-like to look more like talons instead of ram horn. All in all took about a day to make excluding drying time.
    Initial form minus distress effects and rivets

    Very cool. This is so on my to-do list. Few hours into the game and loving it.
    Did you just eyeball it?

    That looks fantastic! Any chance you have a pattern? Or did you just freehand it from the ingame model/screenshots?

    Thanks! Sketched it out from the game first. Made the cosmetic alterations and then made a pattern for it.
