Photos!

I found my camera, so I've got a few photos to show of one of my masks...



This is what people saw when they opened the door to my apartment. Now it's what people see just outside the bathroom door.


Here's a side profile... you can see the chip on the chin... that happened en route to school (and that bit of blue is the dress form underneath).


The other side


But it totally looks cooler without the flash.


And in person. But don't try it on... it's unwearable :|


His name is Deathe Ledger. You know, like Heath Ledger. Also deceased. I couldn't spell it Death Ledger, though, because then you'd all pronounce it "deth." The extra e at the end will hopefully ensure proper pronunciation.


How I did it:
Took a dollar-store skull, sliced it in half and carved it hollow. Crafted eyes out of lollipop sticks and votive candle tins. Crafted eyebrow, cheek and chin bones out of paper-clay. Then painted everything.

Thank you pax_athena for the inspiring book!!

hahaha THIS IS AMAZING. seriously. i actually like the be-flashed photos better because of the white-and-pink fleshiness it gives the impression of - more grisly that way.

Woah, that is really cool! It looks totally professional!

The red around eyes, nose and teeth is a great touch, looks like a fresh skull, with flesh freshly scrapped off... Brrr... (Hope you warned people, so they did not get a heart attack or so XD)
