Intro: Cheap Terminator Mask
For Halloween my son wanted to be the Terminator, we searched and searched but we couldn't find a mask that worked for us. We decided to make our own.
All you need is: Gorilla glue, toilet paper, a faucet base, a clear plastic mask, duct tape and paint.
Step 1: Cheap Clear Mask
Step 1: take your clear mask and put it on, then decide how you want your mask to fit. In the movie only one side shows the robotic side...
Step 2: Toilet Paper Wound??
After you cut the mask use you gorilla glue around the the edge. While the glue is drying I added rolled strips of toilet paper (unused please!!) to the glue. Once its dry it gives it a nice puff feel, perfect for a raised gash.
Step 3: ROBO EYE
For the eye I wanted that to really stand out so a bought a generic silver faucet base. Measuring it up to my sons eye to make sure the center hole was big enough for him to see through. I cut the eye hole in the mask a little bit bigger and used a scrap of the discarded mask as a lens for the robot eye (since the Terminators eye is red I used some translucent red paint on the scrap). To apply the scrap lens and the faucet base to the mask I just used duet tape. I'm sure you could be a little more creative, but with a super small budget and only hours before Halloween you use what you have!!
Step 4: Painting the Terminator
After the eye is in place and the gorilla glue "wound" is dry it's time to paint!!! I just grabbed some Acrylic earth tone paint and a picture of Arnold and went to town!! When your done, throw some blood gel and your wife's tanning powder.. And BAM!! Your Da' TERMINATOR!!!!
Step 5: The Big GUN
If you have a little extra time, all Terminators need a really big GUN. PVC pipes make awesome John Connor Blasters!!!!
Well, I hope you liked our homemade ROBO mask. My son loved it and had tons of people go on and on about it.
Until next time.........I"LL BE BACK......
