I've followed the Harry Potter wand instructable and was really happy with the results. I ended up making two wands, one is smaller and has a more natural look to it, like a wand that a non-death eater would own. The second one I used a larger piece of paper, so I ended up with a slightly thicker, longer wand. This one looks more manufactured, like a pureblood death eater would be proud to own.
I looked for instructions on how to make a death eater mask, but didn't find one that I liked. I mean the outcomes were great, I just wasn't getting into the process.
So I figured, "I have a lot of the things I need here, why not make one of my own?" So, I went to a craft store, picked up a couple of blank masks, quickly realized they had no way to put it on, bought some elastic, and here I am.
Step 1: What You'll Need...
The things you will need for this build are...
- White Mask ($4.99)
- Elastic Strips ($1.99)
- X-Acto Knife (Tool I already had)
- Paint Brushes ($2.99)
- Various Paints (I already had these)
(I have brown and silver spray paint, black latex paint*, gold leaf pen, and clear acrylic sealer)
So not including things that are reusable (paint brushes, paint, etc.), the cost to make just one of these masks is $6.98. Not too bad.
