    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

    i should have an interest thread up soon !!

    - - - Updated - - -

    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 ?

    wow thank you , that really means a lot !!

    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.

    I was thinking about selling fully finished pieces , painted mask with magnets installed and balaclavas with them sewn on or just individual pieces of the puzzle . It's all just a matter of how expensive balaclavas are and magnets and ordering in bulk and how long it will take me to do all of it . Potentially I could use an extra one to cut up into squares so that the fabric matches and stretches the same ?! I've casted about ten masks , three of which I've painted and sent out but I still haven't made one for myself and tried out different attaching ideas . I should probably do that Hahahaha
