Stained Glass Stormtrooper Helmet Lamp Can Actually Be Worn

st

This gorgeous stormtrooper lamp was handmade by etsy seller Midian Craftworks from over 500 individual pieces of glass. He soldered them all together to create this roughly 12″ x 12″ x 12″ helmet. From the product page:

The helmet was made with quite a few sheets of glass, some rolls of copper foil, 5-6 1lb spools of solder, and a touch of blood, sweat, and tears. Ok, I didn’t quite make it to the tears. Each piece of stained glass was cut by hand. The final piece count was over 501. Nice number, right?! 521 to be exact. After the glass was cut, the edges were ground down and each piece was wrapped in copper foil. I then soldered the pieces together, gave the helmet a good cleaning, patinated the solder black, and finally gave everything a nice waxing to polish the metal and make the glass shine! This piece has also been signed and dated.

It comes shipped with a wooden base that includes the cord and a socket for the bulb. Although you can put it on for a fun photo, it weighs a lot and is not designed for cosplay.
