Make your own Stormtrooper helmet

Make your own Stormtrooper helmet:

One white bin, electrical tape, black paper, double sided sticky tape, sheer determination.

I made this helmet for a school event.  I had a student that said that he could lend me his costume but at the last minute realised that he no longer had it.  In a mad panic I had to create my own.  I stumbled upon a little white rubbish bin near my office and it looked kinda head size.  The rest was pure inspiration.  I think I like this more than if someone had given me one.  It now sits in pride of place in my lounge room.

Hope you like it.

  1. Wow, what a great design… is it all Sharpie? I wonder how you see out of it, but really, it looks so cool you could just stand still and bask in the adulation

  3. I thought the design worked so well that I couldn’t bring myself to cut holes in it. Posing for photos was most difficult as I couldn’t tell when the picture had been taken. I regret nothing :)

  4. Fantastic! And if you can’t see you’re more likely to bang your head on a sliding door like that Storm Trooper did…
