Make a Dragon Age: Inquisition Helmet with Cardboard and Masking Tape
Want a Dragon Age: Inquisition helmet without dropping a ton of money on a custom order or supplies? Will Kalif of Storm the Castle has you covered. He’s built one using cereal box cardboard, corrugated cardboard, masking tape, and a few other basic supplies. He shared a video documenting the process on his YouTube channel and also posted a step-by-step tutorial on his website. It starts with two strips of corrugated cardboard and eventually (many steps later) becomes the helmet pictured below. Flipping through the tutorial will definitely inspire you to give inexpensive supplies like cardboard a closer look.
