Helm of Might by neener-nina Helm of Might by neener-nina
Progress Photos can be found here :D

Video of the helmet in motion: [link]

HOLY HELL This turned out bigger than I thought!

Base was initially made out with cardboard, then expanding foamed around it to give it some shape. Papermache'd around that after carving, and after drying, covered it in a thin layer of paperclay. Used plastimake to create the skull at the back as well as to hold the headband and wires in place. Details put on with craft foam then painted accordingly with a base layer of grey primer spraypaint, and normal acrylics were used for more effect. The chains are just these cheap bird toy chains from here, spray painted with grey and added a light layer of silver paint.

Costume to be worn at the first ever PAX AUSTRALIA :D

Thanks! :) Ever since I saw the set on Saurfang the Younger (it was my intro to WoW :v) I'd been enamoured with the Battlegear of Might :)

Thanks! It was my initial idea, but I wanted other possibilities so it could possibly move with my jaw - ~eva-guy01 had the idea of making ear harnesses, but ultimately it was too heavy for that to work :c
