Female mask

Could someone tell me where I can find the most life-like female masks? I want one which really "stick" to the skin, that follows the movements of the face.

Does this mask exist or is it a utopia?

Step 1) Kill a girl
Step 2) Remove the flesh from her face.
Step 3) Tie a string to the removed face so it'll tie around your head.

Presto! Girl mask!

Of course, this method has only been employed by serial killer, Ed Geins.

Otherwise, there really is no 'girl mask' that will not leave you looking like an idiot. I suppose kigarumi masks would be an exception but they don't exactly make people look 'human' either. That, and kigarumi masks are very creepy looking, like giant walking dolls, and people are likel to try to kill you out of fear that you might kill them first.

ok thanks for your answers(the first was very humorous ). I already knew several websites and I knew what degree of "life-likeness" a mask can reach but I just said to myself "why couldn't I dream? you never know..." but anyway, thanks for the answers!

Try searching for Photogenic Masks on Google or something, they are the closest to lifelike masks Ive seen so far, plus a couple of kig freinds have tried them and gave them good reviews.

Also, I know people find Kigurumi scary, but so far no-ones threatened to kill Leigh ^^

You forgot the step where you clean the blood off.


...I've seen a crossplay group that has made Sailor Moon masks which are quite true to the cartoon style of the original anime.

They were fairly accurate, but there's something innately freaky about costume masks in my opinion...

Good luck finding a mask, but personally, I think makeup is a better "mask" than anything you could attach to your face.

The problem with any sort of mask is that the eyes have a 'dolls stare', which is frightningly lifeless and inheritently evil. Thusly, shotguns are required to get them before they get you.

Masks always give me the wiggins. Just say no to masks. Yeesh! I'm shuddering just thinking about those creepy things!

Blue-cancelling concealer to hide your beard shadow, and well-chosen make-up. It's the only way to crossplay! ^_^V

Well.. if you wouldn't mind going through the long process to putting on makeup, there are quite a few things that you can do to make your face look feminine.

Got a good photo where you're looking at the camera (and a picture refference for the character that you want to do)? I can try to write up a tutorial for you.
^_^

Makeup isn't a 'long process' unless you're doing 'Klingon'. :/

I've done that and you're right, that is a loooooonnnnggg. process... but so much fun once you get the rest of the costume on and can run around with a batleth. ^_^

Depending on his facial structure and how permanent he wants some of these cosmetic changes to be (which I'm guessing wouldn't be for longer than he time he's in the costume), he might have to sit down for quite a while.

I mean for example, let's say he's got bushy eyebrows and he's not willing to pluck/shave them to look more feminine. He's gonna have to plaster them down with spirit gum until they're smooth to the touch and then he's going to have to spend a good chuck of time painting over them to make them blend into his skin tone. Then he's going to have to draw new eyebrows overtop of those (and slightly above)... and well... if he doesn't want to look like one of those crazy ladies that draw those silly little line eyebrows, he might actually have to do some detail painting in order to pass them off well enough.

All of that, just for his eyebrows. O_o

Yeah, tie the wuss to the table and just pluck his eye brows while he screams for mommy. ^_^

zipo I think you have the best sugestion as you almost always seem to makeup is best although for certain facial structure and the look your going for it can take longer but really not that long.
