Today I’ll be going on a hunt, a hunt for masking tape.
Poo, I can’t type today.
I messed up writing ‘hunt’ at least 6 times.
Any who, today I’ll be getting some more masking tape.
The later I’ll probably work on my helmet.
… Most likely not, since I’ll be with my sister.
Well, BYE NOW.
Well at first, I had COMPLETELY no idea how to make it…
I started looking up tutorials, which took like 4 hours.
The first few tutorials I found all showed how to make helmets by casting them, but that just cost WAY to much for me.
I don’t have a lot of money right now so, I wanted to find a way to make it cheap.
Then, right as I was going to give up searching for one, I found these two WONDERFUL tutorials ;
First I watched the first tutorial, then read the second.
Making sure I knew how everything was going to work out, and that I had all the materials.
Then, I followed the video but I used masking tape and not clear packaging/scotch tape like the video shows.
After the video steps, I’ve just been following the steps on the website.
Right now, I just got done applying paper mache on the whole helmet which I did 3 layers.
Altogether it only took a day to get that far, so it’s moving by really quickly.
Hope that helps!
Pictures of the helmet being worn.
Still fixing up some minor problems with the base, but it’s coming along.
Other than the minor problems with the base, the base is finished, I just been to finish the horns so I can attach them then I’ll be able to work on the details.
I’m at a stand still with it though, I originally bought two large rolls of tape, then I thought “one is plenty.” WELL, one definitely wasn’t plenty.
… I ran out of tape earlier this evening.
Somewhat mad because I’m actually in a wonderful mood, and I really want to work on it. POO. Well, that’s what I get.
OH. I’m also wearing a white wig in the photos because my Loki wig isn’t here yet… And I don’t own any other black wig. SORRY. ; O;
Some progress shots on my helmet for my Loki cosplay.
It looks rather, uh… bad. But it looks a lot nicer being worn.
Though, seeing as it’s the first helmet I’ve ever made, I think it’s turning out rather smashing.
Ok, it looks great. But what about:
Spray painting Rikku’s blades.
ER. Harder process than you think.
Lots of yelling, and wind blowing.
Hate spray paint.

My new book.
Yuna’s Tiny Bee’s from FFX-2.
Not done, well, in these photo’s they aren’t done.
They are right now.
Uh, no photo. ERP.
ASCOT. ALL OVER YOUR FACE.
OH. YEAH. UH.
I’m wearing some sort of under wearing wear, stuff.
Uh, spandex? ; O;
