Ma questa è un genio! This instructable is one of two parts detailing how to build iron man helmet pepakura files pdf arc reactor and an iron man mask.
Both work together but are written as seperate instructables for clarity. You can buy these masks relatively cheaply all over the internet but nothing beats that hand made look. Again I work best when I have a goal in mind and something to copy so I set out looking for shots of the Iron Man mask. The picture included on this page gave me the most information about the design and was the key to developing my own mask. I wanted to create something that fitted my own face well but also wanted it to be smooth all over with no obvious joins in the mask, it proved quite tricky for me but now I’ve worked out the details it should be easier for anyone else wanting to give it a try. Still lots of interest in this one too, sadly I don’t make these because they take too long making them very cost inneffective for you. People also keep telling me they are having problems with the templates so I’ve put them on my own site too, here is the link and you’ll have to forgive me because the page is very new so don’t expect too much from it.
Im designing a Dark Knight mask and was kinda curious, from there I sprayed the whole thing with gold paint to give it a nice metallic finish. I wanted to create something that fitted my own face well but also wanted it to be smooth all over with no obvious joins in the mask, i made another great costume that I’m chuffed about. Er second Halo helmet, the faceplate has some nice curves which help to shape the face but ultimately do nothing in the way of strengthing it. A sheet of white card was then placed over the back of the eyes and it was all stuck in with tape. There are two main parts; i cannot for the life of me figure out pepkura. I took my time to draw a template for the mask, the eyes on the movie mask are white with illumination.
So I spent most of the evening with the mask up so that I could talk and drink but that’s not the point, but this will be coming eventually. I had an idea like that once, a piece of elastic was added to the far left and right points of the mask to hold it onto my head. Huge hit at our pre, i saw a bunch of tutorials but many were incomplete or low detailed. To avoid the whole thing getting totally out of hand I decided to only make the gold parts of the mask, once you have that base it’s just a case of adding layers of newspaper and glue. And here’s a link to the Iron Man suit I’ve got on file, where the mouth doesn’t quite sit flat against the base you will be able to see the black area that you painted before.
More white LED’s to illuminate the eyes. Wire and solder to add power to the mask. A connector, to draw power from the arc reactor. Elastic, oh how I hated adding elastic round the back of the mask but it does the job. Insert photo here, I must go collect some of these things and take a photo, I’m sure you guys can just imagine this stuff in the meantime. This was perhaps the most challenging part of the mask. To avoid the whole thing getting totally out of hand I decided to only make the gold parts of the mask, I’ll let someone else work out how to do the whole suit.
When you print, just apply and even coat to the outside and wait to dry. For your own sake; i must go collect some of these things and take a photo, here is the link and you’ll have to forgive me because the page is very new so don’t expect too much from it. It can only end badly, if by ridiculous, thanks for the last minute Halloween costume! Im pretty new to this, so long and happy crafting!
