So this is going te be my first instructable ever. Its more like an inspiratinal instructable.

This year for the anual fantasy event (Elf fantasy Fair) in holland i wanted to do something steampunk.
I love the phantom of the opera so why not creat a steampunk ersion of the phantom.

I hope your gonna like this instructable.
Have fun with building your mask.
please leave a comment!

Step 1: The Mask Base and Color

First you have to make the base of the mask. search some pictures of the real mask and some steam punk masks for some inspiration.
I created the base mask of a old Halloween mask. which was made from plastic so i took my dremmel to cut it in the shape i wanted.
Then just make a dirty paint job so it looks like old copper. I did this by first making a black undercoat and then dry paint copper color on it.

Step 2: The Gears and Stuff

Now is the time to try to gather up as much parts as you can. I founds some old random things  in our garage. i also went to the local bike store and asked if they had some old gears witch i could have.
i also found some old headphones that didnt work

the gears where pretty dirty so i cleaned them first.

I hotglued t al together.

Step 3: The End Result

So as you can see it turnd out really awsome. i spraypainted some gold on it to give it a nice shiny look.
hope yours turned out just as awsome!

I added a smal elastic strap to get it to stick on my head.
