This can be made in many ways. I wanted mine to be lightweight and durable because it would be attached to the costume, so I made it from a posterboard base that I covered with papier mache. I made the details with modeling paste that I also covered with papier mache, and then I smoothed the mask with gesso and sandpaper. Here's a pic (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3214697/).

I've seen others make it from clay but that way it turns out pretty fragile and heavy. In the end it depends on you which method you want to use and which one you're comfortable with. X)
