Midna Helmet Complete by meanlilkitty Midna Helmet Complete by meanlilkitty
The second helmet I've made, this time for a commission for Halloween! Now with craft foam ears and hair! The commissioner didn't want to deal with a traditional wig, so she asked me to make one out of craft foam and showed me a picture of someone else's cosplay. Now, I don't really use craft foam usually for anything more than a stripe or a small detail, so this was a interesting project. I tried several different techniques, trying to replicate the other cosplayer's work, but I really couldn't make it work. So intead I cut many, many, MANY little spikes and layered them inward over a cap I glued to the inside of the helmet. To get them to curve, I simply pulled them over my thumb several times, glued them down, and then painted them on a gradient. Craft foam isn't the way I wanted to go, but I have to say I do like the end result.
Midna's helmet from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, made from pink insulation foam, paper clay, craft foam and a plastic disk.
Edit: Wow, thank you for the DD! I've been a part of DA for eight years, and this is my first Daily Deviant. I am so honored!
I almost hate to plug, but be sure to check out the rest of my gallery and my etsy store here: [link]
I'm also available for commissions, so if you think of anything you'd like, feel free to contact me for a quote!

What did you make the actual helmet out of, may I ask? I've been looking for big blocks of things to sculpt for cosplay with little to no luck.

I actually used sheets of pink insulation foam. I just cut them up and put them together with wood glue, then carved it down

Oooh, I just looked that up and it seems perfect for what I need, thank you~

I saw this before, and it's gorgeous, btw. Really intricate, seems like it was tough, or at least tedious. XD

My girfriend is a big big fan of twilight princess. Mainly Midna, and this is the most amazing thing i have ever seen. is there a chance you could make another one? First i'd like to know how much you'd want for it of course, hehe.
