Twitter user Tomowo_PS2 has a creative way for upcycling all those cardboard boxes you’re left with after an online shopping spree – turning them into stunning headgear.
For the past couple of years, Tomowo has been crafting these amazingly detailed masks based on iconic characters, including the mecha from Neon Genesis Evangelion, Stormtrooper from Star Wars and even Iron Man.
One recent work is this impressive, faithful re-creation helmet based on a RX-93 ν Gundam robot from the anime 'Mobile Suit Gundam'.
Tomowo creates each model digitally before printing out the patterns, copying them onto the cardboard and cutting them with a special laser cutter. This detailed Gundam mask, for example, is made from 200 individual pieces. Just about every step of the process is meticulously documented on Tomowo’s Twitter account.
