the making of the witch king

Posted: Jul 12, 2010 by Kade in

So last week we went to a Lord of the Rings party... and we all had to dress up. And for some reason, my brother wanted to be the witch king. And he didn't want to use cardboard for the helmet... but real metal.

So he recruited my help since now I can draw. First, we drew a sketch of our cut-out:

Then we matched it up with the metal and started cutting it out with some garden shears. (just kidding, but that's what they looked like):

Then, you've got to take a break and have some fun:

                         Then we got a grinder and smoothed out the edges ('cause they were kinda sharp) and then drilled a few holes in the back so we could feed a shoe lace through it; securing it.
      So here's the almost finished product:

I know... your already scared, and we're not even done!

Then of course, you have to have the witch king mace/bola thing. So we took our fake nun-chucks and made some foam spikes and attached them on the end forming this:

And the finished product:

It's crazy.

So here's Kole; the finished.


And here's a bonus, Kyler as a wood elf:

And here's me as the Ranger Kade. Unfortunately, I didn't appear in the book or movie... 'cause then the story would have been too short, I would have killed the bad guys way too fast.

Now comment and tell me what you think!

    lol that looked like it was so much fun.... Nick said that if we had gone I should've been an orc... probably not the best idea, but... yeah..

  1. Giann says:

    I think it is creative! (I'm not really LOR fan though. :))

  1. Christine says:

    Haha, that's awesome! Kole looks like he could be in the movie. You too, of course! ;) Love Kyler's outfit too.

    That's awesome!! =D Your brother's costume looks so cool!!!

    Mmm hmm, whatever. They didn't put you in the movie 'cause you would have slowed everything down. Don't be naive Kade.

    The Metal helmet for sure rocks! Your "Flip flops" in the last picture.. Of course I liked! But the funniest has to be Kyler... Wow that was hysterical!

  1. Nice... haha. And I would hate to be a bad guy with Ranger Kade around *rolls eyes*
    But, if fighting and killing bad guys doesn't work out you could always fall back on evil king metal mask making... haha.

  1. I haven't seen LOR yet... I really REALLY want to. But I haven't. My mom is kinda weird and doesn't like it and won't get it for me... blah blah blah. But I do want to see it, so you're not allowed to hate me.
