My older brother has decided to accompany myself and some friends to Dragon*Con this year! Yay! His costume of choice was Armor King from the Tekken series, but has decided that King would be much more comfortable and affordable. Well, securing wrestling tights and boots won't be that hard. We're more concerned about his mask. I've looked around for some examples of actual wrestling masks in a the jaguar shape or form but it's non-existent. So, it seems that I'll have to make it for him. I've got a general idea of how to go about it, but any tips or ideas that anyone has would be much appreciated!

My general idea is to begin with a fabric base and then sew foam on to it, molding the foam in the places I need it to be in a certain shape. I'm not sure how I'll go about the nose or the teeth just yet so I figure I'll think on that for a bit while I'm making the actual shape.

I've only seen one or two cosplays of King before, so it's kind of new territory, I think. He has the body and shape for it, just needs to define his abs a little more. Like I said, it's the mask I'm worried about the most.

Thanks in advance for any ideas or anything really you think of!! :] :]
