The building process. I made the helmet out of 300 g/m² A4 kraft paper. I tried to print the template right on the kraft paper, but my printer doesn't accept high density papers, so I printed it on regular A4 paper, then glued it on the kraft paper with white glue (Tip using white glue: spread it on the kraft paper's surface and then glue the regular paper on it, this helps to avoid ripples). In order to glue the tabs I used a kind of superglue with medium viscosity. The result was a really solid helmet. I painted all of it with white acrylic paint, then painted just the wings with gold spray paint. It looks really nice! I also built the internal headband so the helmet won't shift on my head when I move. It took me a little long to build because I was always stopping to do something else. Dificulties. I find out that the wings were a litte bit hard to fold because there are a lot of folds near each other. Thoughts on the design. This is a beautiful "mask" and looks nice alone on the head or as part of a costume or even as a decoration piece. It's simple and easy to build. If I could give the designer's an advice it would be to put aditional pieces in the template as alternatives for the wings, like ram's horns or a flat piece to close the helmet in case of people want a plain helmet. Sorry for any grammar error, english is not my mother language.

This winged helmet was easy to put together simply by following the well explained and simple tutorial. I love the look and shape, so did everyone else who I met on my first of May celebration :-) This is my eighth Wintercroft mask I have gotten and there will be more because I just LOVE THEM
My son and I had a great time building this helmet for his Hallowe'en costume. Instructions were super easy to follow and the finished product was great! We have since built the dragon claws (another fantastic design) and are looking forward to working on the dragon mask this weekend.
Great fun coming up with creative way to make this. Ended up using mirrored card (about 300gsm) with double sided gold card for wings (about 150gsm), plus aluminium strips bent to shape inside for strength and battery operated LED lighting strips with sequencer and remote. Also, sprayed inside with a clear lacquer after making to ensure no moisture was absorbed into the card to make it soft or weak when wearing on a hot head (also gives a bit more strength).
