Cubone Helmet How-To Will Up Your Pokémon Game

The release of Pokémon Go in 2016 seemed to pump some fresh excitement into the realm of Pokémon cosplay. People put together trainer costumes, warrior takes on some of the pocket monsters, and more. I saw a barbarian style Cubone back in October, and the little monster seems to be one of the more popular subjects for cosplay. DeviantArt user pre15, a.k.a. Raptor Attacks, shared a tutorial for making a Cubone skull helmet using paper mache techniques over an armature made from copper wire found at a local home improvement store:

When I got home, I started bending the wire into shape, using my head as a guide and a mirror as reference. I started with the “footprint” of the skull, or the part that would rest flat against the table if it didn’t have flutes or fangs. I sized it so that the spherical part of the skull would nestle snugly around my head – leaving just a little room for the paper mache and wood filler that would come later – and made the snout of the skull sized to match, about the size of the bill of a baseball cap. After twisting the ends of wire together to hold their shape (at the very back of the skull, where the bump would be less noticeable), I cut it off and started sculpting a new piece for the “spine” of the skull.

You can see a collage showing off the Cubone helmet progress below.

It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
