Misfit help?

I am in the planning stages/beginning to buy essentials stage of making a Misfit costume:

I'm not entirely certain what I want to make her cape out of. I'm thinking satin but any suggestions would be nice.
My main problem is her ridiculous mask. I have no idea where to begin with that one. If anyone has ideas/suggestions, I'd pretty much love you forever.

I made my Jason Todd mask out of liquid latex.
You basically get a plastic mask, liquid latex, paint the latex on for quite a few coats (15+ plus), let it dry for about a day, come back, SLOWLY AND GENTLY peel it off using copious amounts of baby powder, and cut it into shape.
Voila~
Can't help much on the cape though :/

Oh, liquid latex. Hmm. I would definitely do that with a smaller mask but I feel like hers being so big might make that method problematic. I've got some old liquid latex so I might try that anyway. I'm also thinking of maybe using craft foam.

I would still use the latex and just spirit gum the crap out of it to my face, but I'm also a stickler for the latex masks because of how well they conform to the face.
But keep me updated on what you do, I'm interested in what works best

You know, I might try both. Craft foam is super cheap. I was going to cut it out in the general shape I wanted and use a hair dyer to blow heat on it and mold it to conform to my face/a plastic face mask. I could always plaster cast my face and then do it or just be lazy and use a plastic face mask from the craft store. I'd probably paint it black and apply a layer of gel medium to it.
If the sheen from the gel medium is too much I could probably sand it down a bit and then cover it with more black acrylic. If I can find my nasty old liquid latex I'll definitely try your method. I just wish that stuff didn't smell so gross hahaha
