With the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on the horizon (the film will be in theaters on December 18), it’s an ideal time to make an X-wing helmet. AWE me networks’ DIY Prop Shop is here to help. In the most recent episode, host Dustin McLean goes over the necessary steps to make Luke Skywalker’s X-wing helmet using everyday sort of materials that also happen to be inexpensive. Supplies include a baseball helmet he obtained from a thrift shop, orange safety goggles, cardboard, and hot glue. The tutorial requires a few tools, but overall, it looks pretty easy.
