Plague Doctor Mask by IceandSnow Plague Doctor Mask by IceandSnow

THERE we go, I got around to uploading my plague doctor mask. YAYYY.

So this is what I worked on for the past week or so when I wasn't doing my endless assignments.

I started out with a cardboard/ductape shape, covered that with watered down glue and paper towels from the bathroom (yeah, that's my ghetto paper mache method xD)
Thennn painted it with acrylic paint, and added the stitching with gold string. That part was extremely frustrating, as the string kept breaking, and it was so hard to get a needle through the layers of cardboard and duct tape that I had to use pliers. I even broke a needle in the process. xD

At any rate, it was worth it, and I'm quite happy with the result. As much as it would be awesome to go into the mask-making business, I found the process so frustrating that I don't think it would be easy to con me into doing it again any time soon. :P

BUT I HAD THE COOLEST COSTUME EVER ON HALLOWEEN... even though I had a really hard time seeing and had to be guided down stairs. xD

but yes, enjoy. <3

I like what you did with the eyes...it looks like it's always staring at you even with nobody wearing the mask... :)

I am now going to beg shamelessly for a tutorial!!!!!!!!

I have been hired to be a Renaissance Faire performer for this year and we get to create our own characters. I desperately want to be a plague doctor but all the masks are far too expensive to afford. I need to be able to make a sturdy one that will last about 3 months of long weekends.

Help a girl out! I want to convince people their going to die before they leave the faire!

Haha, this will be a great reference for the mask I have to have done in a week for a cosplay convention. I love the work on this, especially the eyes and those sexy stitches! :heart:

"I do not love you Doctor Fell and this I know and know full well, I do not love you Doctor Fell."

Sorry, this reminded me of the comic, Castle Waiting. There is a character called Doctor Fell that wears a plague doctor mask.

Wonderful Mask.

That's really cool. I'm currently building one too. I'm building mine in a wildly different way though. But... I'm interested to give something similar to your concept a try.

This mask is very handsomely made! I love the decorations around the eye holes!
The only thing I don't like about it is that the masks worn by plague doctors scare the living s*** out of me.
But it does seem like it would be a great halloween costume!
