Items you will need:
Pair of pants( wide leg or large, big enough to put over your head )
paint (non toxic)
fiberglass Screen Repair Patches ( find at hardware store)
other items you might need:
battery powered motor
Step 1: Cutting the Pant Leg(s)
Step 2: Preparing the Pant Leg
Step 3: Marking the Facial Features and Cutting the Openings
Use a template or salt shake etc to make circle for eye openings. You draw free hand also.and draw a mouth opening. Make sure the opening are smaller then the screen patches
Step 4: Prepare and Placing the Screen
Turn pant leg inside out and place screen over the openings. You can use a glue gun to trace around the openings or use tape to secure and sew in place.
Try it on make sure you can see properly.
Step 5: Final Touches
Or you could draw horns or ears on top and sew and cut away extra material.
Step 6: Embellishments
You can also print facial features and laminate to add more character, I use photos of my own feature.
I used double sides tape to attach the features. Use Sculpy or paper clay to make a nose.
Other cool things you can do:
Preparation - Cuff the top as you did in Step 2.
1. Use bubble wrap to make a brain - trim top to your liking leave open and push bubble wrap from the bottom to the top . Use hot glue gun to attach. I used LED light underneath the bubble wrap.
2. Put a small battery powered motor on top - Cut a piece of cardboard in a circle the size on the opening on top, push close to the top as possible and attach with glue gun. Cut a hole in cardboard the size of the motor, glue in place, connect small battery pack and cut out a hole for a switch (on top or on the back of the mask). I make a drill out of cardboard for this one. (just a cone with a spiral around it). http://www.chellboy.com/chellboy/masks/mask2.m4v
3. Make features using cardboard and paint , It's the easiest way :-)
