Asgardian Iron Man Helmet

No one works with leather like Prince Armory. The craftsmanship that goes into their costumes, armor, and weapons is nothing short of incredible. It’s easy to spot one of their designs because of the quality of their work and because they often put a medieval spin on modern characters. For example, I highlighted their medieval Darth Vader ensemble earlier this year. They’ve also crafted a medieval-style Joker and now, they’re working on an elegant Asgardian Iron Man suit.

The concept art is below. The curving cuts of the armor pieces and elegant scrollwork are striking. The details are on full display in the pictures of the in-progress Iron Man helmet/mask. Achieving such intricate lines and patterns has to require more carving and tooling than I want to think about. The pattern was transferred onto the leather with carbon paper and then carefully carved in. Prince Armory offered this tip:

Leatherworking Tip – If you have a small or narrow piece that is fitted or otherwise needs to maintain its shape, leave an allowance/border around the piece to keep it from stretching and trim when tooling is finished.
