Introduction: Borderlands 3 Psycho Mask - SKS Props

About: Steven (aka SKS Props) is a seasoned member of the RPF and a Pro Builder on the site Instructables. He has made a name for himself by creating extremely detailed costumes/props based off of popular video games…

Hey everyone Steve here at SKS Props back again with another cosplay build! This time I am creating the Psycho mask from Borderlands 3 which isn't even out for 5 months! Those that know me know I absolutely love Borderlands and so it seemed only fitting that I tackle this mask ASAP!

Before we begin let me say some of the products that are use in prop building can be bad for you :(

So be safe!!! Always wear eye protection, wear gloves, and use a respirator when needed.

Lets get started!!!!

Step 1: Reference and Materials

As with all of my prop/costume builds reference pictures are key. When you start to think about making a prop or costume from a video game, movie, etc. always try and find as many reference images as you can. Since this game isn't out yet I had to base the build off of the BL3 cover and a few screen shots I found online.

Step 2: Psycho Mask Build Video

Unfortunately I lost almost all of my pics when my SD card failed but I was able to use all of the video from my other camera. So here is the build video for this mask. I go over Monster Clay and sculpting but since I have done that extensively in previous Instructables this video really focuses on molding, casting, painting, and finishing a resin cast mask. I hope you enjoy the process and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for my prop and costume videos!!!

Step 3: Glamour Shots

Finished pics taken in my shop and I couldn't be happier with how this mask turned out! Ready to strip the flesh and slat the wounds when this game drops in September!
