This year I have a friend that is pregnant and she isn't far enough along to know the sex yet.  She went in to the hospital with some concerns and ended up getting an ultra sound done and the tech said she saw "(maybe) testicles".  That reminded me of an old oatmeal comic about the angel fish (seen here:http://theoatmeal.com/comics/angler) and decided I had to be one for Halloween this year.

The mask is made of paper mache and it's my first time since grade school doing it.  The eyes are made from polymer clay, the antenna looking this is wire covered in paper mache for more girth, the light was a little light up "finger light" from the dollar store.  

I don't know how to rotate this pic

My female testicles.

It's a wonderful helmet. I love it's creepiness and the teeth are just right.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Great job and very creative! Love the details (e.g. eyes, teeth, light, uh... testicles) and I love the oatmeal!

Very original, and I love that it actually lights up
