Put On a Frown And Become Judge Dredd

Becoming Judge Dredd is serious business and not just because of his grim expression. It’s a commitment to build a screen accurate replica costume, and Studio Creations breaks it down piece by piece from the helmet to the boots. Though the ensemble isn’t cheap, it does look amazing when done right, and Studio Creations has done serious research for each component and provided plenty of reference photos with measurements. For the helmet, he lists tips including paint color references and helpful information for using pepakura:

Here is a paraphrased quote from Robb Allsopp, Key Principal Costumer for the Dredd movie, about the paint colors used in making the helmets, “The helmet is gloss black, with gloss red trim. After painting, there was a lot of breakdown/weathering work. The exact color of red was a custom mix.” (thanks to Jared Butler for acquiring that quote.)

Closest Red colors the fans have found in the stores:
Rustoleum Colonial Red (spray on top of Gloss Black)
Dupont Spectramaster Red RS660
custom-color “DREDD RED” by Jared Butler (based on a movie-production-used color chip.)

Raised Edge Measurements
For anyone making a pepakura helmet… here are some measurements based on cardstock thickness. You can layer up your 100 lbs cardstock to achieve the raised edges much faster than cuting the raised lip out in polygons and gluing it together.
.90 mm = 3 sheets of cardstock
1.20 mm = 4 sheets of cardstock
1.50 mm = 5 sheets of cardstock
