View Full Version : Taokaka Mask

Okay, so for my last Con I took my Taokaka cosplay.
The problem I found is the holes. D:
In flash, you can see right through them, which I didn't realize until AFTER the entire con.

I'm wanting to sell this pretty soon, but I really want to fix the mask first. D:
I don't want to sell something with bad quality. </3

So; what kind of fabric should I use for the facial holes?? And does anyone have any good tips on making a good, full-faced mask?? It was my first time making one.

I guess its a little late buy i'm trying wonderflex and velvet for making a mask. Right now its not covered with black velvet but the mask looks kind of like a wierd friday the 13th mask atm. I guess its good because you can see where all the cuts on the wonderflex are to give it a bowl shape. I should have just bought a thin bowl, lol. link (http://fav.me/d2znajl)

I also cut apart a pair of snowboarding goggles for the red lens, and kind of stitched that onto the mask. I guess i did a few other things to the goggles but, its red, and you can see through it, lol. Link (http://fav.me/d2ze7cx)

I have leftover paperclay from other crafting projects so i'm actually going to see if i can make teeth out of those for Tao's smile, lol. Give it a little depth.
