This is the first time I've ever tried to tackle something like this so bare with me !

image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

So I bought a white mask from Michael's and fiberglassed the inside trimmed it down bondo'ed it then primed and etched in the detail. My OCD kicked in and it wasn't "perfect" enough for me so I got in contact with santiclaus a 3D modeler here on the RPF gave him some reference photos and this is what he sent me

So I uploaded it into shapeways and had them print me one and when I got it I sanded it primed it and am in the process of molding it now .

Ill post our updates when I get more accomplished

It takes a little bit to get the hang of casting but yours look to be coming out great! Looks nice and smooth!
Thank you !! The sides are a little difficult to get and equal thickness on but the third cast is a lot better .

i was thinking of just having an elastic strap with Velcro that runs underneath the balaclava or actually attaching Velcro to the mask and balaclava or magnets so you can pull it off and on just like the movie . Still tinkering with ideas .

I personally would try to go with the magnet idea so that it can be removed. due to the balaclava covering so much of the chin/forehead it probably wouldn't be too difficult to side some magnets in there.

i was thinking about sewing pockets on the balaclava with magnets inside and maybe a magnet strip on the forehead of the mask so it can come on and off no fuss and nothing would drop ?

That sounds like the best course of action to me....it's actually almost exactly what I was thinking about doing. Heck I'd buy the magnetic balaclava from you too if you did both as a set.
