plastic bags

stuffing materials (paper, foam, plastic bags, old socks guilt, shame, anything you can crumple up.)

Step 2: Head Making (Don't Get a Swelled One.)

place bag over top of head and wrap in tape.

Step 3: Skin It!

after taping the head, slit it across the back, flip it inside out, and wrap again.

Step 4: Skin It Again and Stuff It.

slit again, remove from head, and tape over the slit. You should now have a shiny head shape.

Step 6: Extras

You can keep lengthening the head to any desired height. (i.e. nemesis mask in pic)

and take a cheap plastic mask and tape it to the plastic bag head for cloth masks. (i.e. red hood in pic)
