A trip to Hobby Lobby, Joanne's or Michaels. into your back yard. Those flowers that dried up but haven't gotten thrown away_ you know that happens~ It's not just me.******
2. wander into the fabric department. Oh guys if it Zorro you want to be. A strip of Black Satin or Matt finish Lycra is your best friend. Just make sure you cut out the eye holes in the right place. Wear Black Tie on the Mask.
Next for everyone else
3. purchase; fabric glue or gemtac, Now go look at fabric. you can often buy as little as 1/4 of a yard. that's a lot really. Pick out a base color If your ourfit is a solid color. ie red, white, black, turquoise. Pick your most favorite color (the same or a contrast) There are wonderful velvets and textured fabrics. Some stretchable some not. It's up to you. If you want a particular color on a mask and want it smooth then stretch fabric is very useful. I'll repeat that later just as a stress reminder.
You don't have to worry about it. Do not stress. This should be FUN.
Yes, Just have fun. Extra ribbon and pearl or sequined ribbon can be bunches of dangling strands to frame your face.
or thread through your hair. Rhinestone hair clips can add to the shine. Maybe not so much if your Zorro. But who knows.
Step 3: Simple Fantastic Masks
On the Fire Dragon mask I cut out scales from different shades of sheer and added rhinestones. The skin color fabric is sheer stretch mesh and lays behind the head. There are hidden loops on each side so it is pined into he hair.
look at trim and even package ribbons and decorations. There are lots of fake pearls and shiny bits in the holiday area that work just fine. Tiny mirrors. Bits of glass. It could be I like shiny too much. But maybe you do too.
And So Mermaid or Water Sprite or even The Green Fairy.
Also when using sheer fabric and if you like I do wear glasses. Or. You want to disguise your eyes you can cover with one layer over the eye hole.
So see ??? let the unique things show through. It makes it more interesting. And It makes it Uniquely Yours.
So Keep it simple unless you can't . And enough shiny can cover anything. I think.
