Halloween Skull Freak 2019!

My crazy skull mask. It was lots of frickin work! It turned out nothing like my original intention. I learned a tonne and feel frustrated that I don't get to do things like that every day.

Who wouldn't want all that on their face?
The mask is surprisingly comfortable to wear.

For the arms I painted Burma Rubber co latex onto opera gloves and coloured with brown.

Shoulder armor made from leather with fake fur.
