Via Make Magazine: This isn’t so much of an original post as it is a shout out to go look at another web page. Anywhat, Maker Shawn Thorsson recently set out to make a Captain Phasma chrome helmet and you can see the process documented on his website. According to the website, and Make article, Thorsson began working on the helmet before he had actually even seen the movie, and with only sparse information and photo references. Frigg’n wild. Although I really did not like the new movie, I do think this make is incredible and Thorsson did an excellent job.
Check out a few sample images below and hit the link above to see (and learn) much more about the process of making a stormtrooper helmet. Even if it was one from a really bad movie. Sorry. Dammit, I just can’t help it.
