    6 Days Ago  Dec 7, 2017, 6:19 PM - C3PO wall light use as a mask???? #1

    Hello all

    Never posted my own thread and not entirely sure if this has been posted already. I recently Purchased a C3PO wall deco light off the internet for only 18.

    Having had a good look at it I quickly realised it's potential as a mask. It's about the right size and the look is quite accurate considering. I took it apart expecting it to have a fair amount of wires inside but it's really just a shell and actually fitted really well. It would need heavily modifying to build a back part but makes an excellent base to work from.

    let me know your thoughts.

    I'm also trying to make it into a helmet using pepakura. The whole thing is too small for my head though, so I'll probably use it as a prop for display instead.

    Interesting! Could you photograph the mask from 6 feet back while zoomed in?

    Interesting. Is the frame from a good rigid plastic such as ABS, or something that does not take glue or paint well?

    Did post his in my thread a little while ago...

    here's one comparison taken from tripod to ensure identical distortion.



    This shows the most relevant angle, I've bought 3 more to mostly test weathering paint apps

    Btw its abs I'm sure, so game on.

    Someone should do an upgrade run for the back half.
