This is super cool. I was semi-obsessed with Set and Anubis when I was in... 5th grade. So I was 11. Hehe, I was sort of dark Smiley

Great job on both costumes.

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

I have a whole bunch of fliers advertising a series of concerts (but all the fliers are the same), does anyone want them?

as always, i'm happy to share construction methods or elaborate details. I can ramble on about my design decisions, but i'm afraid to bore y'all, so just ask!

thanks for looking, I hope you enjoyed my costume!

I would love to hear about your construction methods and elaborate details Grin  The mask is just the coolest thing I have ever seen.  You carved the foam???  What sort of tools did you use, how long did it take you to make the mask, and is the mask heavy?  Wouldn't this be an awesome group costume, there could be an Anubis, Isis, Horus, Bast, etc...

sure, i'll do my best

i'm actually a sculptor so poke me if i miss important details or you want some specifics that i missed..i often forget to mention things Cheesy

i started with plaster bandage, some saran wrap (for my hair) and vaseline for eyelashes, eyebrows, and hairline
make a basic plaster mask on yourself (lots of tuts out there i'm sure), get help if you need. etc
the foam i used was expanding insulation foam (monofoam brand) from walmart haha. spray it on outside, please wear gloves...this stuff is not awesome on skin at all (one of the worst experiences save actual injury IMO, very irritating)
so i sprayed on to start up the form, and let it cure for some hours, then carved. there's quite a bit of mesh armature inside which i kind of jammed in where needed and sprayed more foam over (gee i wish i had pics) but of course this would depend on how much foam you feel like using, and how much your mask protrudes, mine protrudes a lot so i wanted a bit of armature for strength and support. the foam is very light, but it's foam and therefore could break without support if it got hit very hard

i pretty much just carved with a dollar store steak knife, because that's what i have in my toolkit. in the first process pic you can see i filled in some larger holes with a crack filler, but at this point i don't think that was neccessary. just sand down your foam so it's smooth (please wear a dust mask, and do it outside in old clothes!)

i made a basic paper mache type mix with glue and flour and water, and used tissue paper to go over the outside..much thinner but still strong with the mache, i also did a final layer of glue over it again, but it probably wasn't necessary..just make sure if you're spray painting that no foam is showing through

i picked up some really light air dry clay (i think mine was paper clay's 'delight') and sculpted the details. painted glue over the clay once dry (so the paint would absorb the same as the rest of it) painted, and clear coated

hope that helps, please feel free to ask for clarification if you need, i kind of breezed through my description because i didn't take any pics!

Thanks for all the extra info! I think you did a fantastic job on the whole ensemble. I wonder what the mask looks like from the back side?
