Return of the MoS helmet by InKibus Return of the MoS helmet by InKibus
Firstly- I ONLY MADE THE HELMET AND DRAPES.
The rest of the accessories were provided by other crafters and the client.
So, here is that helmet I remade for a private client for a mannequin.
I was privately asked to recreate another Mouth of Sauron helmet like the one I wore.
This was also a long distance client, I had to made the helmet proportioned for the head/chin I did not have to fit to, but the client was rather helpful with detailed measurements.
Parts of the process were harder, to do it better, on a schedule, and literally flying blind (double pun intended).
But thank the gods I kept my old templates and photoed every step of my prior effort and wrote a tutorial.
Gotta admit, though it was much blood,sweat, and tears, the results were worth it.
:blowkiss:Thanks for the support, friends!

While I have not researched adequately to make a verry accurate critique for you, I will say that this piece as a third uninformed party in particular looks very good.

That IS nice - It looks like the color is a bit different on this one? Maybe it's just the lights.

Oh, I want to open those blinds and turn the mannequin around. *evil giggle*

I love the blending of the color on the helmet. I'm not up on the whole character or series but the helmet is stunning. The lines are sharp and straight nd are details in themselve.

That's really cool. Your skills never fail to amaze me.:)

On a side note, all the client has to do to discourage burglars from robbing their house is set up the dressed up mannequin near a window or in a living room.:XD:
