This is a plague doctor mask I made out of posterboard. Sorry but I didn't make any work in progress pics of it: I drew the side profile onto two sheets of posterboard then cut it out. I used small folded bits of posterboard to attach the two halves together, then I made a throat section freehand for the lower part of the beak and neckpiece. The curved back section was made to keep it on when I was wearing it. The "Eyes" are sheet plastic circles hot glued to the mask itself. After it was assembled, I spray painted the entire thing faux bronze: First a black undercoat, then short sprays of gold paint over that to create the bronze effect.
