Thor Helmet Tutorial

helmet tutorial

Though we’ve discussed several tutorials for crafting armor, we haven’t talked a lot about helmets and masks. Some cosplayers use cheap plastic hats like baseball helmets to get started and sculpt on from there or even add Worbla. Yasemin Arslan, also known as Vera Chimera Cosplay, built her Thor helmet (the finished helmet is pictured above) from scratch with cling wrap and then tape. She shared a two part tutorial on Facebook with step-by-step photos. Here’s part one:

This is a tutorial on how to make a base design for a helmet, which I will be making from craft foam and worbla. This ensures that the helmet will fit you snug and will suit your facial structure. It definitely isn’t an attractive process, but template design never is, haha.

The cling wrap is essential to make sure no tape gets stuck onto you, and the tape helps to sculpt your facial structure. Make sure to tear holes where your eyes are so you can see what you’re doing. If your helmet is symmetrical (it’s the same on both sides), I advise you only tape one side. This will save you time and equipment.

From here, I will cut the helmet to make it sit flat on foam, and I can made it 3-dimensional once the right steps are done.
