1  Tobi Mask: fastening to the head. in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by MintJeli on: January 27, 2013 05:49:44 PM
Hi guys, I made this Tobi mask last Halloween, and it was so much work to make but in the end looked so cool I thought I'd make a few more.



The mask weights about 6oz. so it needs a good way of fastening it to the head.  For myself I just glued on a piece of fabric from an old t-shirt, using my own head to measure.  I can't really use this method on an item I might send to someone across the country who I can't measure.  Plus slipping my head up through the bottom is tight and tricky and still felt a little loose.

I plan to line the inside of the mask with felt too, but here is the strap I have on my own mask, the 'prototype', if you will.  The fabric is hot-glued on and it feels like it makes a pretty good bond and it hasn't peeled.  That's a legitimate way of attaching it, right?



I thought about attaching a piece of fabric on each side that will velcro together in the back.  That would make it easier to put on, and make it more one-size-fits-all.  Would the fuzzy side be wider so that the hook side can be placed along it for different sizes?  Does velcro have a pretty good grip for something that weights 6oz.?
