Quick Armor - Halloween shortcuts

Here we present some shortcuts from our members.

Tar Paper Helmet and Chest Plate

To make my version of Dernhelm I used tar paper for the "armor", boots, helmet, and vambraces. the boots didn't hold up very well. I ended up wrapping them with clear packing tape.      

Helmet pattern Ready for battle! Hello!

Attached are measurements and a pattern for the helmet. Instructions are for assembling helmet:

  • 1. Staple number one together with the small ends.
  • 2. Staple the number two pieces perpendicular to each other intersecting each other at the centers.
  • 3. Staple the attached number 2 pieces to number one.
  • 4. Staple the number five pieces in the gaps on top. 
  • 5. Staple number three to number one.
  • 6. Staple the two number fours to number one on the sides of number three, with the bigger ends of number four on the bottom.
  • 7. voila! paint it or whatever you want to do.    

Pattern for the Chest armor:
