So last year I was re-wearing a store bought costume. So I decided it needed a little DIY, so I made a mask. The costume was a red and black "gown", so I made the mask black with red crystals.

Here's a pic. of the whole thing. It's attached to a ribbon wrapped dowel, with some ribbons hanging down.

This is relatively accurate to color. basically it's a plastic mask, decoupaged with black paper with a slight silver sheen.

You can kind of see the sheen in this one. I tried to get some wrinkles and rough edges to get a kind of worn, leathery look.

Side detail. The other side is done in the same way.

Here are the ends of the ribbons, I put the same crystals on each side to add a little weight and extra sparkle.

I wasn't sure if it was safe to use hot glue, so I attached the dowel with tacky glue and ribbon to add support. It's not the strongest ever, but it didn't fall apart.

I'm hoping to make another one this year to go with my costume.
Comments/suggestions are super welcome.
