Introduction: Terror Bird Mask

Halloween Photo Instructable Contest

Finalist in the
Halloween Photo Instructable Contest

A mask based off of a terror bird. Made in 2009. I lived in Toronto and had a membership to the Royal Ontario Museum. My favorite section to visit was the dinosaur exhibit. After some initial photos and internet research I came up with this design. The wings are roughly to scale of what they would have been on this prehistoric creature. To make it a bit more surrealistic I kept the head as a skeleton and had a human heart protruding from the top.

Materials:
- Skull, wings, tongue and heart carved out of Ethafoam
- Covered with Polar Fleece using 3M spray glue and airbrushed
- Hallowed eyes heat molded from sheet styrene

Enjoy.

Haha,
I worked at a mascot production facility for a couple years. That's how I learned.
The closest thing I have to a lesson are these two instructables:

- this having the stills and video of the process

this has the same video, but I have a longish comment there that explains more

Enjoy!

Let me know if you have any other questions.
I am slowly working on a step by step of the cat one.

Awesome! You're entering this into the Mask Challenge too, right?
