Should you decide to use a live person instead, read this link. It looks pretty good and I don't feel like typing out all of the instructions. If it's not good enough then google "diy death mask".

Don't do this with someone who is claustrophobic.

Well, my link was instructions for making a "death" mask on someone who is still alive. I think that's acutally called a life mask.

If you don't have a corpse handy, try this body-casting Instructable, or this one, which also involves chocolate*.

First find your corpse, then using plaster of paris make a mould of their face, in-situ.
