It's pretty cold here the past couple days (snow, seriously?!), so the curing time between layers will take a bit longer. I won't be updating much on this guy until I get at least all the layers finished, and sanded down. So in the meantime, I'll be working on OoT Link again... which I guess is technically this cosplay too... geez this'll get confusing...
Method is paper mache, where you add flour & water ( optional glue) to a mix, and have ripped newspaper strips dipped in the paste, and directly applied to the surface. Remember those fun crafts in kindergarden? Hellz yes, this is the same thing. Expect a mess, so cover your area with more newspaper or cardboard, and wear something you don't mind getting dirty.
He looks sorta derpy happy, doesn't he?

Reminds me a bit of Skeletor from He-Man :P Nice job, I would not have guessed it was papier mache

Haha, it really does! I tried to find general skull references online to go by, and tweak to look more like what I needed. I used strips of plain white newspaper (the stuff they wrap your flyers in), rather than the printed news.
