Demon Hunter Helmet

I altered the the designed a little, since the resolution of the concept art of this feature was a bit undefined. I wanted to add a bit more edges to the horns and detailing in the back. 

I had no idea how to begin this build process, so I did what I know best - cardboard. 

And then wrapped the cardboard mock up with worbla. Sine the look of the helmet is forged it works great with this slightly uneven surface. Still a way to go, but we are getting there. 

The horns were expanding foam base (see horn for the pauldrons). 

Then the horns were carved out and covered in masking tape. 

To get a different texture on the helmet than on the pauldron horns I added Glue gun glue around and round the horns (took forever). Then They were spray painted gold and heavily weathered with brown acrylic paint. 

Back to the base of the helmet, testing horns, not happy yet. 

Details added. 

The base was painted the same way as the horns. 

To attach the horns I have embedded 5 mm nuts in the horns and secure them with 5 mm bolts. I have even made a youtube video explaining and showing how to take them on and off. 

Looking good.

  1. How heavy is it, and how long can you wear it before it's hurting? :D I've made a cosplayhelmet with horns myself, and it's a pain in the butt. But I would love to use this tutorial if it's lighter than the one I already have!

    1. It weighs just a few hundred grams, it is really light. I don't even feel it while wearing it. And with a wig, it sit great too. Sure if I start headbanging it will shift or fall off. But no pain from wearing it. note that I only use one layer of worbla :) GL
