1977 Dredd helmet
« on: 01 August, 2018, 08:09:25 pm »
Something I started a while ago, then abandoned, then came back to today.

I'd not seen many attempts at the retro helmet as a 3D model/real prop - so thought I'd have a go.

Was quite happy with the result - still needs a couple of tweaks to smooth out some kinks...

That looks pretty good. I’ve thought about trying to get a collection of helmets through the ages/ artists. Did you convert one of the Dredd 2012 helmets?

Cheers,

No, made it from scratch. It's just a 3D render, not a real prop (yet)

👍🏻 I’ve always wondered if I could try convert a Dredd helmet to a Sov Block one but it’s trying to find a block of time to give over for such a project.

A few people use chicken feeders as a base.

Chicken feeders! Interesting, I always admire cosplayers/ prop makers who can repurpose an “everyday “ item into something from their fav comic or film.

Thanks for the link Steve. They are great and is just inspiring me to make the time and go try it. I could end up being a Mr Ben with all the different helmets 😁
I don’t know what they would turn out like and where I’d put them all - maybe a winter project In between finishing the Carlos colouring book, painting up the Strontium Dogs, playing (trying to) Rogue Redux and doing my chores around the house to keep the wife happy 😁.

That looks very convincing, I thought it was real.

That's lovely. I can see it working really well with the 2012 uniform.

Cheers,

the 2012 costume is closer to the 1977 version than it's given credit for.

Would be interesting to do a full-on 1977 version IRL.

I always thought the shoulder pads were very reminiscent of early depictions of Dredd - the uniform must have changed while Dredd was on the moon / crossing the Cursed Earth...
