cut an X in the hole. feed the dread through. use some epoxy/super glue etc. to keep it in place. don't use hot glue. it doesnt work as well, the glue won't last either.

when you say "cut" what would you personally reccomend we use for it?

And how far does one feed the dread through?

(just another noob passing through) =P

The best glue for latex is more latex. The second best would be contact glue. I cut the hole with pointy scissors.

I have used a method that seems to work: I glue a ring of foam inside the head, cut the holes then feed the dreads through the holes and glue them to the foam ring. I don't actually know the advantages and disadvantages of this method, but I feel it helps the mask keep in shape.

use a blade to cut the X. i like to do that because it give more surface area for the dread to be attached to. you will have to experiment with the X size so it's not too big or too small. just put it through far enough to hold it.

but like Jason said he hasnt had any problems with just strait glueing it to the mask.

and latex is great too for the adhesive
