Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my first Instructable.
In this Instructable, I will show you what I did as a preparation for making a full face mask, which is shown in my second Instructable.
I participate in a lot of LARP events and these events often have the High Fantasy genre as theme. This, in turn, often means you have the chance to portray a Fantasy character that barely resembles a human. When portrayed, those who portray such a character can wear a full face mask to make the 'transformation' more complete and/or more interesting.
For myself, I also had the plan to make a full face mask. I figured I needed a solid base; I knew from experience that wearing a mask that doesn't fit, is an absolute horror. So, I went to work creating such a base; creating a head mannequin/dress form.
The goal here: the final product should be the size of your own head, or very close to it.
