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.

***********For a bit of insight into how to build this papercraft check out this link. hekatelesedi.deviantart.com/ar…

Thank you so much for posting this and making it available!  I was looking all over for a helmet to use for my upcoming Loki costume, and you've been a godsend!

You're welcome. Surprised you couldn't find it sooner. Many papercraft blogs host the download link and don't credit me for making it.

Well...I only just found out what pepakura was (I thought it was a foam brand name or something).  I'm still figuring out how to best put all the bits together.

On that note, quick question.   are there any tips/tricks you'd suggest for assembling the tiny little areas (like at the tops of the horns)?

While building it keep the Pepakura Viewer open, you can hover your cursor over the pieces and see where they go and stuff. You can also print it out with numbered edges, theirs an icon of '123' called Show Edge ID.
As for he small bits like the horns, I recommend you start with the the tip of the horns and work down. Its hard to build up into a narrow point, the times I mistakenly did it I had to use scissors or sticks to hold the tabs in place as the glue dried.

I've also been told the helmet is a little small, so you may want to rescale it if you can or do some strange printer settings to make it larger.

Thank you so much!  For my first run, I accidentally started from the base of the horns and worked up.  Really unwise choice.  Thank you so much for the tip.  Now I'll know I'm going about it the right way.

I actually saw the comment about sizing, and I figured out how to rescale it (I have a really big head).  Hopefully I scaled it up enough.  If I didn't, though, it's not like I can't scrap it and try again.

I'll be sure to link you to all the progress I make.

No problem. Papercraft is really easy after a while. Only thing that sucks is that is can make a lot of mess.
The proportions of it are the main error but not the only one, might remake it some day, maybe after Thor: Ragnarok comes out and Loki has a new helmet design.

Good luck.

I don't know if this is something you should put in the description for this, but I figured out how to fix the horn problem.  If you keep the horns separate until after you've coated the helmet base in a couple layers of resin, there's enough structural integrity to keep the horns in one place without warping.

Nice work, theirs a lot of problems with this design. I've never made it myself and this design was one of my earlier works. I'll attach a link to your build method in the description.

HekateLesedi Featured By Owner May 21, 2015  Student Filmographer
Well, I can safely say that the proportion alteration worked perfectly for me.  It's a little on the large side right now, but once I coat it in resin, it'll fit like a dream.

I look forward to seeing it, if you end up making it.

uh, does this pattern work well with foam? I see that there are a bunch of little tabs... I didn't know if foam would be flexible for that but I guess it would depend on the thickness wouldn't it...
I am not craft savvy.

No, these tabs are for paper really. Foam doesn't work the same way, foam you kind of mold and bend into shape after heating it.

Yeah, I kind of figured. It's hard to find a template that a simpleton like me can use, haha. I've seen a few people use paper and then give it a resin coat...  
Thanks for your reply

Its not hard, you can print it with numbers on the tabs so you just match up the numbers. Just takes a while is all. Work your way up to resin and research a lot.

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?

:iconkaiserlee:
KaiserLee Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2014
It's papercraft, not wood. Use PVA glue.
Reply
:iconsebvirartz:
SebvirartZ Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
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.

No step by step. Just cut fold and glue. Use Pepakura Viewer to see what is what.

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?

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.
