Thats pretty slick, reminds me of the frank the bunny mask i made afew years back

I used tyveck which is like a cardboard they use in attics, wire, newspaper, duct tape, an old t shirt and spray adhesive. Im amazed it still exists its a little rough lol good stuff id like to try one

That is pretty damn cool, I think the real trick would be to figure out how to make it actually smooth, no bubbles like usual paper machee. The bubbles in the paper throw it off for me but still a very cool first run with it.

Check out 'Tested' on youtube. It is Adam Savage from Mythbusters. He and some of his worker bees show you how to build cosplay stuff like helmets and such.
