Eyeless Jack by Kr3ssidia Eyeless Jack by Kr3ssidia
Just a simple preview picture of my cosplay for the anime convention that I am going to in July. The better pictures will come around the time of the actual convention.
The mask shown isn't even finished, 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. 

So yeah, enjoy. 

------------------------------------- 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.
I'm just trying to help encourage you all to better your own creativity as artists.

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.

Question regarding the structure of the mask: do you use the paper mache to pill in alongnthe nose to make it round (sothere is no visible nosemor mouth) or does that have to be sculpted during the tin foil part?

When I was using the paper mache, as I went I just layered it in a way that it would slightly flatten out a little bit, I purposely left a small impression of my nose (The mask actually isn't "flat". I left the nose slightly visible, like a small bump). The tin foil never really made an impression of my mouth to begin with, so I never really had to worry about that, and if there was, it would be easily layered over to become flat. The tin foil was just a plain mould of my face, I just used layering and building up of the paper mache to "sculpt" I guess.
The mask was a lot easier to make than it looks and I described. It's just hard to explain exactly how I did it because, well, I just did it as I went, sorry.
