This is the finished dragon mask that I made to wear at Oz Comic-Con :D
Quite happy with how it turned out, not bad for a first try. And now I have a few ideas for what I can do differently if I want to try again. Like having more foam padding under the eyes inside, because it was comfy to wear at first, but I noticed that it was starting to cut in under my eye after a while of wearing it. Aside from that it sit pretty well on.
Next job it to work out how to fit my old glasses lenses into it so I can actually see. I can see well enough without to not bump into things, and make sure I go home with the right group of people but it makes trying to actually look at something a bit of a pain.
There is a cloak thing and a tail that goes with it, but I gotta get some less blurry photos first. And I may already have plans to remake them somewhat, because for the cloak at least, it ended up being a lot more awkward to wear than I’d expected.
But now that all that’s done, at least until I start tweaking things for Armageddon in october (because it would seem I am incapable of letting things be) I actually have time to get back to work on everything that got put on hold.
Apologies for both the photo quality and the state of my kitchen -.-
Mask itself was cast with Smooth-On 300 resin, horns were foam/paper mache/paperclay/willpower. Everything painted with acrylics, and one disaster with spray paint that shall not be repeated or spoken of ever again.
This is amazing, seriously. I’d love to see the originl sculpt, too. The details are incredible.
