Ancient Roman Helmet can be used as inspiration for what futuristic military equipment could or would look like. Interested in the styling, formal decoration, and shape. Also interested in the way the helmet shows how metals deteriorate and how their colors change in that process.
Roman soldier helmet made out of a spray painted: baseball cap (flipped backwards), cardboard (for the ear flaps and visor), feather boa, styrofoam plate edges (attached to the top part of the baseball cap - you can try paper plates and glue; I used duct tape), embossed vinyl fabric glued to the cardboard visor and ear flaps, and gold fringe. Feel free to embellish further!
