Robin Mask help

So, I am cosplaying Tim Drake soon, and I honestly have no idea how to make the mask. I want to make it so it molds to my face.
Does anyone have any good tutorials?

I have already seen the tutorial on youtube using the halloween mask, but sadly I cannot find any halloween masks anywhere and I'd rather not use that.

The mask should look like this

Do you have a mannequin head? If so, you could probably use that as well; I did for my Robin mask. In order to have something molded to the countours of your face that will also move/stretch with your expressions, you'll need to use liquid latex to create the mask.

I've done craft foam domino masks that were also heated then molded to a mannequin head. They laid on my face better than just using the flat craft foam as-is, since I was able to mold it around the brow, nose, and eyes of the mannequin head. It didn't move with my expressions, but it works ok.

Craft foam will do the trick, or I've had good luck with molding leather to my face. My Huntress mask is leather that I wet molded to my own face, then painted.

You can either make a mask out of crafting foam, using two batman masks to mold it, which looks good, but not great,
or you can buy a plastic white full-fasked mask from Joann's or something, cut out the shape with an exactly, spray paint it, etc.
Here's some help:

I know this is super late, but an idea I've had about having a domino mask that really conforms to your face and shows facial expressions would be to use a prosthetic mask.

i made a damian wayne one out of leather its pretty good. little this so make sure you get a thinner leather the thicker one seems to be pretty stiff.

Cut the design out of craft foam. Put the mask in the oven at 300 degrees on a cookie sheet for like 2 minutes. then take it out and mold it to your face. the foam will be warm and flexible but not hot.

I have taken two simple batman masks and put foam between them and heated it. Then cut it to shape because the heat gave it the contour and the batman masks were bigger than what I needed I could just trim it into shape :-)
