I go to a huge fan convention almost every year, and this year I wanted to wear a more topical costume. Meet the characters from The Purge Election Year.
The masks all started life as a generic pack of paper masks. Most of the other masks got a sculpting of air dry clay to modify the features AND brow ridges. They then got a few coats of gesso. The "Kiss Me" mask's eye strings were created by dipping parts of cotton balls into gesso, and letting them dry onto the rest of the mask. The "God" mask features real cosmetics and dirt from a potted plant.
The Statue of Liberty mask was probably the hardest to create involving an electric drill AND a steady hand.
