Okay, this was a pain in the tush to do.  Everything needed to be modeled just right, but luckily the cardboard at the back of the helm was heavier than the foam board.  It makes it easy to wear and looks great.

Looks good, do you have an action shot so we can see how it looks on? I'm mostly curious of the size!

I'd post one later tonight/today.  Gotta get someone else to take it.  (I just have a mini tripod - sigh.)

**Edited:  Action Shot!

*Uber Edit: The entire thing is textured, thanks to the properties of acrylic paint and baking soda.  The paint on the visor is unadulturated, and there is dark silver paint on the model magic "welds".

Thank you.  I had a lot of time to work on it.  (It's part of a Halloween costume.)

It's modified so it's not quite so masculine looking.

Good luck to the rest of you in the challenge!

Thanks for the linked photo, imxriotxhere.  That's him in the Silent Hill movie.  Cheesy

As for the classic "great knife" he carries - I'm not building that.  I rather carry a fake plastic machete instead of a great big weapon into a club.  It's annoying, but I suppose it can be done.

Oh Man, I wish you'd make that huge sword for it... your helm is so close to the real one and he's so my favorite Silent Hill monster:)

I actually figured that more people would comment on this. It's really good. Can't wait to see the final costume (although... the giant sword seems like way too much fun not to make!!) so post it for me!

The sword would be awesome. A broom stick with a wrapped handle and a big ol folded piece of corrugated painted with blood and pieces of flesh would be nice. Wink It can even be a bit smaller. I'm just saying.

Yeah, that's the way I was going to do it!  But sadly, I do not want to be hassled at my campus pub - the security is stupid and any over large props make them nervous.  Plus, the pub gets jam-packed, no room to breathe or to even move.

However, I will be designing the sword over the coming summer for Anime North, if I go.  (Hate being in residence, almost no crafting to be done!)

I have made two HUGE Pyramid Head helmets in the past three years. For dollar store items, you did a fantastic job! A plastic machete works well in place of a sword. I made mine out of a long thick and skinny scrap piece of wood and Styrofoam carved into shape and then covered with posterboard, paint, and love.

I am a HUGE Pyramid Head fan, and I instantly recognized who the helmet belonged to when I saw it on the main page. Great job!

Thanks!  I usually use dollar store stuff anyhow for my costumes - that way I don't feel bad for trashing them or making them bad!

I love PH - I was on youtube and he seems like a crowd pleaser for everyone!  Cheesy

Also, what reference pictures did you use?  I went with a cross between the movie and video game ones.
