You'll need a cheap drink helmet (with straws already attached), two matching tankards or steins, some craft foam, and acrylic paint.

The "metal" components are cut out of craft foam and glued onto the helmet. The original tubes fit into holes drilled in the tankards so the lids don't have to be propped open.

All the pieces are painted to match Gimli's helmet, and zip ties hold the whole thing together.
