Daedric Helmet by Kuraudo3 Daedric Helmet by Kuraudo3
My finished Daedric helmet. It took a long time, but a lot of it was due to the learning process. Hopefully future projects won't take quite as long. It's just a cardstock base with three layers of fiberglass resin, a solid coat of bondo, some Mod Podge to smooth out some parts and paint.

Oh and the eyes are covered with a double layer of chiffon so you can't see into it, but I can see out of it just fine even in low light.

Let me know what you think!

Is the finished product strong enough for Boffer Larping?

To be honest I had to look up what Boffer Larping is, but I'd say that it's sturdy enough. I only ever use fiberglass resin for the first stage of strengthening, but it you supplemented that with fiberglass cloth or mat it would be even tougher. It would take a heck of a swing from a foam padded weapon to do anything to this helmet.

The helmet looks great! I love the bone crown too. Hopefully my second helmet turns out as smoothly as yours did. And no I haven't made much progress on my armor lately. Hopefully I can get a compilation pic up soon to show where I am on all of it.

You should wear that, running around shouting "A challenger is near!" XD Other than that, the helmet is awesome.

how heavy is it? lol, as heavy as a real daedric helmet?
Reply
:iconkuraudo3:
Kuraudo3 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012
Complete guess: two or three pounds? It's not heavy, but it's plenty sturdy. So definitely not as heavy as a "real" one, but then again I'm not as strong as a real Dovahkiin ;)
Oh and thanks for the watch! I'll try not to disappoint. I should be getting pics of the paper cuirass up soon.

I think that's probably the exact same thing I said when I first saw it in a loading screen, so I'm glad mine pulled off the same effect. Thanks!
