Eyeless Jack by Kr3ssidia Eyeless Jack by Kr3ssidia
Just a simple picture giving a preview of my cosplay for the anime convention that I am going to in July. I know, crappy picture editing, heheh. I'm just so lazy, and it's just a preview, the better pictures will come around the time of the actual convention.
The mask shown isn't even finished either, nor is that the sweater I will be using.
I still think I went a bit overboard with the 'dripping liquid', but that isn't something I can fix. I might be able to find a way to make the rest less shiny, if you know what I mean, with all of that glare on the forehead and nose (And even the rest).

So yeah, enjoy. lol.

---------------------------- Edit 1 ----------------------------

So I keep getting comments from people asking me how I made this, so I suppose I will post the general steps I used to make the mask...

1. First, I made a mold of my face using around 4 layers of tin foil. This took a while because I needed the perfect fit.

2.I used three layers of paper mache to do the rest (2 cups of flour and 1 cup of water + newspaper strips). I had to do this carefully, so I didn't make the mold lose it's shape while I was doing the paper mache. After it had finished drying over night (I did the paper mache in one afternoon by making it dry faster between layers by using a hair dryer on the cold setting) I used sandpaper to smooth it out and get rid of those annoying little bumps.

3. I painted it directly after sanding it because I was too excited to finish it (I love making things like this). I used simple acrylic paints to paint it. The way I did the drips of black liquid is my own idea, everyone else can make up their own ideas of how to do this. I did, you all can too.

4. Lastly, I took two layers of black nylon, stretched it nice and tight, and glued it over the eye holes. This works fairly well, because it's hard to see in, while it isn't that bad seeing out. But the visibility depends on how tight you stretch it, the looser it is, the harder to see.

So yeah, that's how it was made. ^^

I love the mask!!! Have you ever thought of doing makeup underneath it, just for when you take it off? I have seen many versions of eyeless jack with and without his mask, and I think it would be awesome to do makeup beneath it just for the extra effort.

Thank you very much. :)

I have thought about it before, but I'm not sure how to go about doing the makeup for Jack, because of the fact he's supposed to have no eyes, though I have seen some attempts at it (none of which appealed to me all that much).
I can probably come up with an idea, but I can see it as something too challenging for someone like me who has limited skills in the areas of makeup.
Thanks for the suggestion though.

Okay! It's obviously not as good as YOUR mask, but it's pretty close.. The ceramic one broke so I had to glue it together and build paper Mache off of it like a mold... Thanks to your idea I got lots of hugs when I went to AnimeCon. dance Anime Emoji (Oh yay dance) [V2] hug

Oooh, that's a really nice one! :D

That sucks that it broke though, but glad that it got fixed, lol.
You're lucky that you got hugs, I didn't get any, and no one took pictures when I went to two conventions. .______.
Glad it worked out for you! xD

Nobody hugged you?!! DUUUUUDE... I got like a LOT of hugs from people that were like "OH MY GOD IT'S EJ/EYELESS JACK!" And they asked for pictures and for hugs and I'm like "Yes. Hell yes. Love me."
Some people were actually scared to approach me, Stitch clap plz  .. One person said "Leave me kidneys alone..." and I was like "[EXO] Kris ''Legit'' Crying Emoticon "
.....
Just keep going as him and improve your costume each time and more people will be like "Whoa.. That's awesome"
If not, go as some other Creepypasta (NOT JEFF I SAW LIKE 6 OF THEM IN ONE DAY)
Your mask is pretty damn awesome though Adam (HEYYEYAAEYAAAEYAEYAA) [V2] Tohru hugs Kisa-chan [V1]

Lol, yeah, no one really gave me a second look, haha, oh well.
That's really funny though. And Jeff really is super popular. :P
No clue why.

Actually, this evening I was contemplating the idea of making a bunch of other Creepypasta masks, Hoodie and Masky for sure, I think. Can't think of any others at the moment, heheh (past midnight writing this, lol). Maybe that'll be my project for my last spring break, heheh. That and make a proper tutorial like people keep asking.


By the way, thanks for the watch. :)
