Introduction: Borderlands 3 Psycho Mask - SKS Props

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!

    Unfortunately I lost almost all of my actual pics when my SD card failed in one camera but I was able to use all of the video from my other camera so this build is just video.

    Suggestion: since you don't have the pics, you can make new ones from screenshots of your video and maybe using the transcript of your narration to write the formatted steps. With the steps and screenshots, you'll have a complete instructable. I've seen other instructables constructed that way, and they don't look bad IMO.
