Apparently this Anime/Manga is all the rage and I must be living under a rock. I saw this Goblin Slayer design which was sent to me by someone.
They suggested I try building the helmet. I looked at the helmet design and I thought...OMG! SOO Cool!
(Ok...I wasn't that excited) BUT...I did think that it would be fun to build in EVA foam.
I watched a couple of clips to get an idea of what the show was about and then I went on and created a Foam Pepakura Helmet file and got on my way to building it on Twitch. (http://www.twitch.tv/heroesworkshop) I'm very pleased with how it turned out for just building it in a condo.
