Cyberman Mark IV Mask

This year I was invited to my first Halloween Party. Obviously, I had to wear something special.

I wanted my costume to be made from recycled stuff, representing a character from Doctor Who. So I choose a Cyberman from "The Invasion": I love their masks and retro look, and people who had never watched the TV series could think I was dressed as a robot (and that's exactly what happened...

Unfortunately I didn't have the camera to take pictures while I was making it, but I wanted to share the idea anyway.

The materials are newspapers, glue, cardboard, some string (I had to sew the side pieces to the head to keep them in place), masking tape, wires, scissors, cutter, spray paint and some plastic bags.

I know it's far from perfect: the side wires were supposed to be covered in plastic and duct tape, but I didn't have enough time to do that, the teardrops at the sides of the eyes are too small to be easy visibles, and in some parts the paper is peeling. But I still love it.

really good, but for some reason your cyberman looks to happy and cheerful

Well, I guess I was happy and chherful... couldn't help it. But it was real fun to see how people ignored me cause at first they just saw a thing, not someone in a costume.

Thanks!
Eeeee! It's great! A very creative build, definitely, and a good use of everyday objects. :)

(Hooray for vintage Cybermen! The new ones are pretty scary, the old ones are totally cute and awkward!)

Well, I feel the old ones more scary than the ones from the new series,  maybe because they're in black and white.

Thanks for the comment!
The black and white does make it kinda scary, but I can't help giggling at how oddly they moved back in the day. Now they're too fast and too smart!
