My boyfriend is a fan of Skyrim, so for Valentine's day I made him a card with the central theme of taking arrows to knees. The card itself was made up of pictures of me holding written signs; for the last panel, I put the below picture of me wearing an [edit:] iron helmet that I made. A few sheets of fun foam, a roll of masking tape, papier mache, and 6 solid evenings of work brought me this
If I'd had more time, I would have fixed the nose guard (tapered at the end, instead of straight), and made the horns curlier and more textured. Alas, that's something to think about for next time.
