Mask Help!

Me and a friend are going to be cosplaying from Okami and we need some help with the oina masks our characters have. Does anyone have any suggestions on what materials to use and/or helpful tips on construction? Anything would be appreciated!

Here are some reference pictures:

it depends on the style you going for but off the top of my head
i think foamies or stiffed felt would suit this cartoonish look

I think that using something like celluclay may work, since it can be smoothed down and shaped over a form, and is pretty light.

However, what I would do is use tooling leather (if you can get a big enough piece) since it's very easy to shape when wet and holds its shape well, along with being able to form over your face in the shaping process. A 2-5oz section of vegetable tanned leather would be good, though there may be better options out there. I just make leather masks in my spare time lol
