This WHOA-Worthy helmet was made by super crafty Jenn Hall, a pastry artist by day and freelance illustrator by night. This is what she has to say about her now-famous R2-D2 Helmet.
First, I sand-papered the crap out of an old helmet. Then I primed and sprayed it with a silver spray paint. The next step was labor-intensive. I outlined all the shapes with tape. It involved a lot of measuring, cursing circles for being so round, and wishing I had kept my protractor and compass from high school. From there it was kind of a breeze. I just spray painted the blue on. Next, my handy friend Jon Hauptman used his super awesome saw to cut a PVC pipe down for the doo-dads. The final step was giving it about 374 cans of clear coat. When it was done I wore it around the house until it was time for bed… and then I wore it to bed.
