Loki Helmet Finished by KaiserLee Loki Helmet Finished by KaiserLee
Here it is *TA DAH*
Took awhile to get some bad panels to line up but its done and ready to be made. Not sure if I will make it soon. Kinda sick of making papercraft after spending 2 weeks trying to build a helmet for a cosplay. But here it is, enjoy.

Oh and how tight does it fit? I have a rather medium-small head... And don't want it to be too loose...

It's fairly small, may want to rescale it for your head size if you can.

Do you have any tip on what glue to use? Does normal wood glue work, or do you need something special?

It's papercraft, not wood. Use PVA glue.

I'm fully aware of that. The problem is, I live in Sweden. There are Hobby glue, Wood glue, Melt glue, Super Glue, Allround glue etc etc... Never seen a PVA glue bottle my entire life here... 

And wood glue is not only for wood -.- It's called that because it's th glue that works best on... Well, wood. I mean, cosplayers around the world use it for surfaces on armour.... 

Glue is so much more than glue.

Okay then....polyvinyl acetate - find a bottle that has those words on its label somewhere, use that.
If you're giving me a hard time about the answer I gave you then why ask in the first place? I said use PVA, you said you cant find it in Sweden for some reason; fine, use whatever glue you like.

Wow, rude. 

I said that I can't find PVA glue because I live in Sweden. 

You do realize the the word "glue" doesn't even exist in the Swedish vocabulary. It's called "Lim". 
And I was asking if you knew if wood glue could work aswell. I don't know if it's too liquid or something, mght ruin the paper, what do I know? 

I was simply explaining that I don't know what PVA glue is, since I've never seen a PVA glue bottle in any stores here. No need to to be so rude. Chill a little.

I'm not here to hold your hand and give you every step of process through creating papercraft. I don't know why Sweden doesn't have PVA, honestly it sounds dumb that you don't have it there. If you can get it there then import some. Experiment with what glue you do have access to and see what works, I cant do this for you. I'm not your problem solver.

Oh, so we're playing this game now, eh? You think I'm trying to get you to explain how to do it? Seriously? 
Nono. If  I wanted you to give me step by step, I would ask more than one question -_- 

I don't know if we have PVA glue here, but if we do, it's not called PVA glue becasuse that's English... Not Swedish. 

You really should stop being such a bitch just because someone asks you a question... Seriously, do you have no life at all?

Wow, that was weird. I've never seen a reaction like that, but I've encountered the problem myself.
A tutorial gives a material to work with and then you have to find out what product that actually is (like components and properties - then you can start looking for something similar in your country). It can take a while but I've never seen a reaction like this to a harmless question regarding a product.

In case you are still wondering, I've build all my papercrafts with woodglue but I used a fast drying variant (here it's called Ponal express but I am sure you'll have a product with similar properties by another name in Sweden) and apply it very thinly with a fine brush - you can move the parts for a few seconds but then the glues holds the parts in place securely. Anything that's not fast drying would probably mean that you have to hold your parts in position for some time and slow your building process considerable.

So far I'm loving this thing. I just have one question the lines. I know Solid are cut and dotted are fold. (So sorry if you have already answered this) are the dotted lines like ----- valley folds or are the ones patterned _._._._ valley?

Never noticed the different lines before, hmm. I believe _._._._ are valley folds.

Do you have this in a .pdf file.  I work on a Mac and can't convert it.  My son is going to trade me in if I can't figure this out again this year.  I attempted last year, for Comicon and spent $50.00 and threw it all away!  I know I can do it, if I can have the file in a pdf.  Please help!!  He wants to dress up as Loki this year at Comicon and I have a long way to go!  I don't even need all of the fold lines, just the basic shapes.

I think all of your stuff is amazing!  Kudos!

No problem. I've seen the helmet size is alittle small for some people so maybe it'll fit right away. Try making the head band part, goes from the forehead to the back of the head and if it fits so should the rest.

Thats a good idea.  Since I had such a problem printing it, I thought I could just enlarge the whole thing 20% on a copier too if need be.  Thanks for such a great pattern!!  I can't wait to get started!

I don't know how to make it in to a pdf format. Also this is an adult sized helmet so depending on your sons age it may not fit unless you have Pepakura Designer and can rescale it to his size. I suggest finding a pc or laptop that can install Pepakura Viewer and print it out on that. It's free software and a small size so downloading takes less than a minute and easily uninstalled after you are done. I'll take a look into porting the file to a pdf format but theirs no promise or guarantee that it'll happen.

My son is 12 and can wear an adult size.  He is bigger than me!  lol  I tried to open that link and it gave me an error message....grrrr.... I appreciate all of your help!!!  Yours looks to be fairly easy to do if I can just get it downloaded.

This might seem weird but I've never done this before so your help would mean a ton to me.

I'm not quite sure what the measurements are and if so how to make sure they fit me, I cant risk making one too small. So if you could more or less help me out with that that would be fabulous ;;

:iconkaiserlee:
KaiserLee Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013

I'm not sure how to get exact measurements either, I tend to eye ball it, which obviously isn't completely accurate but I tend to get it close. If you get Pepakura Designer you can re-scale it to be bigger. Look up some Pepakura Designer tutorials to help you out.

iFroglet Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, I figured that one out, I just don't know what measurements I'm scaling it to is the thing. I've been looking around on tutorials and they keep using images of armors on someone, and calculating from there, but since I haven't found anywhere to change the exact measurements I'm a bit stuck.

The way I do it is by looking at the pieces of the papercraft on the grid on the right, each square in the grid is an A4 piece of paper in size. I take that and then measure up a piece of the papercraft in that grid and see how big it would be once printed out. With the Loki helmet I think I made it alittle too small, so take for instance the middle crest piece of the forehead on the helmet and see how big it would be when printed, then scale from that.

Pepakura Viewer has a tutorial built in. Hover over the tab you are on and a red line appears connecting it to the piece it needs to be glued to.

I'm almost finished with the helmet! :)
But I wondered how to attach the horns to the helmet-base and the horns seem to be turning outwards, I don't know if this has to be like this or if I've done something wrong^^'

Hey I was wondering if you ever fixed the problem of the horns turning outwards. As I am having the same one :(

Hey! Sorry for the belated reply, I didn't see your comment! I haven't really worked on the helmet for a long time, so I don't know if I can help you in any way. I think it's got to do something with the adjustment and the way you stick the horns to the helmet. Maybe you should just try to rotate the horns a little so they point in different directions. My horns are still turned outwards, but I kinda like it, it gives the helmet a nice little twist :)
I hope this helped! Good luck! :)

Its a good idea to add support strips of card while building something like this. It will stop any warping and other parts bending. Just attach a piece of card between the horns and possibly the cheek flaps too.

Hey~ I woud like to make this loki's helmet, I have a more less little head and I was wandering if it fits good without changes on scale. Could I waer it with the standard size?
Reply
:iconkaiserlee:
KaiserLee Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013
Possibly, theirs only one way to know really. I would suggest printing it out and making the frame of the helmet first. So the sides, back and piece across the forehead. If you can fit your head in there it should be fine.
