Zelda: Breath Of The Wild

In this project we'll build the Thunder Helm, a unique piece of armor in The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. It's described as a precious heirloom passed down among the Gerudo. It deflects lightning strikes and is traditionally worn only by the Gerudo chief.

This helm measures 297 millimeters tall by 390 millimeters wide. The main body is printed in gold PLA while the details are painted with a metallic gold acrylic paint. We used translucent PLA to illuminate the gems on the front and sides. The gems snap fit into place, while the rest of the side parts are secured with machine screws.

The helm uses an adjustable elastic headband and we even managed to attach the circular lightning blot headdress to the headband!

This helm is the perfect accessory to the Guardian sword and the Guardian Shield projects!
