they actually arent too bad, weighty enough to make them stable on your head, you definitely know they are on, but not painful in anyway!

This year Hubby, our daughter and myself went as 2 of the Wild things, and Max. I spent about $7 on my daughters costume, buying clearance and discounted fabrics. It was my first time sewing a full costume, I was very happy with how it turned out!

The masks were made using paper mache, carboard and foam balls. They were heavily inspired by Amy's Carol Mask, found here:

thanks for looking!

Myself, my hubby and our daughter are going as Carol, kw, and Max from where the wild things are. Im making the masks out of paper mache, and I used an exercise ball for the form. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to keep these things on our heads! I kept working on them anyways, thinking it would come to me and well.. it never did. There is so much extra space inside the mask, even a helmet is too small. Any ideas? Im sooo stuck!  Undecided

Thank you everyone for your suggestions!! I ended up building a cardboard frame resembling a basket inside the mask to fill up some of the extra space. I then sprayed the inside of the basket with expanding foam, and carved out where our heads went. It worked wonderfully!

So I found an amazingggg pattern on Ravelry for a Woodland hoodlet, and just had to make one for my 2 year old! 3 days later I had this:

Its made out of LWool Ease Thick and Quick, its soo warm and comfy. I need to make myself one too!
