When I first saw the cover art for the newly released game Dishonored, I knew that I had to make Corvo's mask as an Instructable. Most of the items required can be easily obtained at your local hardware store, such as Home Depot; Halloween stores; and art supply. It is not recommended that this mask actually be worn since it is rather heavy and cumbersome. I had a hard time posing with it on because it was so heavy and kept sliding down my face. Instead, it may be used as a decoration around the home or even attached to dummy draped in a black cloak. Or just let it sit and be spooky all on its own! (Corvo tattoo not included)
Step 1: Materials
For this re-creation, you will need the following items:
A full face blank mask
A black half mask
Hot glue gun
Thick jewelry wire
1" Electrical conduit fitting
Black spray paint
Silver, black, and copper acrylic paints
Stipple sponge (optional)
Other miscellaneous hardware items
(NOTE: I forgot to take a picture of everything I gathered prior because I got a lot of items after I began working on the mask)
Step 2: Cutting and painting
I didn't have to cut up the black mask seeing as it was already how I needed it to attach the other mask. For the white full face mask, however, I cut it down the middle and then shape the jaw. I cut the other unused pieces using several images of Corvo's mask as reference so the jaw structure could be attached easily. Not exact, but close enough.
I then took the white pieces and spray painted them with black paint and let them dry for at least a half an hour before bringing them back in the house. (NOTE: Please wear a mask when using spray paint!) After it had dried, I brought the mask in and dry brushed it with silver acrylic paint. Just before it fully dried, I went over it with a stipple sponge to pull off some of the paint, giving in an antique feeling.
