So I decided to try and make a wolf mask for now until I can convince myself to buy a mask on the board haha.
Anyway, I went with the foam method I saw on youtube by a member here called predattack.

here is what I have so far. If you guys want step by step progress pics let me know and ill post pics on how I got to this pic :p

Right now im working on mouth details then mandibles :mad:

I'm HOPEFULLY going to be able to finish this before Halloween, I'm trying by the 15th but I doubt that will happen. anyway ill continue to post progress when I can :D Thanks for watching!

Edit: forgot to mention this fits Caseys wolf bio perfectly. I started building this mask in the bio to make sure it fit

ok so i have progress.

i added the chin piece (which ill add onto later to the neck)
photo12.jpg

photo13.jpg


here i have added a mandible
photo1.jpg


and here is the other side
photo2-5.jpg


heres how it sits on the chin
photo3-3.jpg


btw I shape and cut everything on this mask with scissors. here's how I shaped the mandibles round
It starts out like this
photo11.jpg

and heres the shaping with scissors
photo4-2.jpg


heres an ok pic on the progress of rounding
photo5.jpg

photo6.jpg


so after you round it, i cut it on the inside so that it sits on the face more flush and doesnt "bulge" the foam
photo9.jpg


heres how its looking from the crown down to the mandibles, the angle looks pretty flat and i believe correct. It sits in Caseys wolf bio perfectly
photo15.jpg


and heres my favorite. my gf took a picture of it with an app on her iphone. it looks awesome! (you can see me starting the upper mandibles also)

forgot to mention this is what im using to glue everything. its the only thing that had foam on the can haha
photo14.jpg


Here is the upper mandibles added (i decided to keep both mandibles on my wolf, but still have the messed up face)
photo17.jpg

photo12-1.jpg


i cut a really thin layer of foam and added the skin to the mandibles. i cut the thin layer with a hobby knife (xacto blade)
photo11-1.jpg

photo19.jpg


here is how i cut the mandible to compensate for the thickness of the skin so it sits flush
photo16.jpg



the finished look
photo17-1.jpg


Then did the other side (the clean side)
photo9-1.jpg


Pics of both sides with skin

i still need to add skin here
photo8-1.jpg


and here
photo21.jpg


next i added copper wire
photo5-1.jpg

found in coaxial cable. (i got mine free from some charter guys that worked on my house and had some scrap they were throwing away)
photo6-1.jpg

photo4-3.jpg


This allowed me to maneuver the mandibles to closed position
photo3-4.jpg


Which allowed the mask to fit even more perfectly
photo2-6.jpg

photo1-1.jpg

photo-5.jpg


Here is some videos on how to strip the coaxial and cut the copper wire

anyway i forgot to mention that i shaved down the lower mandibles flush to the face before i added the skin (like i did with the upper mandibles)

Thanks for looking! ill post more as i get more done.

I have some questions also, i plan on latexing this mask. i didnt find anything in the search, so what should i use? regular latex found at spirit halloween? or should i order some mask latex?

also how much will the latex shrink the mask?

Thanks guys!

what did you use to harden the mask? did you use latex? and what kind?

That will help a ton :)

Hey buddy,

If your looking for latex get this stuff right here http://www.monstermakers.com/product/RD407...-and-Props.html

I'm assuming its the same latex this guy used here with his mask created from foam - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIwM2czuaK4

His mask came out awesome.

This is the only latex i've heard of beside the latex from the halloween stores. As for the shrinkage I have yet to cast anything out of the latex I purchased. I just used it to mix my acrylics and paint my dreads and my predator hands and feet. Though I've read if you don't seal the paint it'll crack with moving parts. My hands cracked a litte bit but they were such a tight fit after I modded em a bit I haven't seen the latex cracking since I've worn em (several times). Your mask looks great man I can't wait to see it finished.

You could always shoot him a message to I dont want to give you any false info he was at NYCC I dunno if he is a member on here though.

awesome man yeah i saw that latex online already. thats the kind i wanted. but i needed the mask earlier. so i just used latex from the store. it actually worked really good. it came out a little porous because of the foam. so im trying to fill it with the paint. anyway, its just a temp mask because im going to buy one soon anyway. but yeah ill post progress pics really soon. i started the dreads and teeth and painting the whole thing white :p

So I'm about to post progress pictures and I'm on the paint stage (so I think anyway) but I'm wondering what can I do to fill the pores in the foam? I've tried 2-3 layers of latex, and a lot of layers of paint. Still no luck. Any ideas?
Thanks everyone :)

alrighty guys so here is the progress. from the last time i posted i started making dreads out of foam (and yes this WHOLE mask dreads and all was made with one foam roll i bought at walmart for like 18 bucks) haha

photo11-3.jpg

photo10-3.jpg


i started sculpting the teeth i used sculpty and baked them

photo12-2.jpg


then test fitted on the mask using toothpicks (which later attaches to the copper wire)

photo18-2.jpg

photo17-3.jpg


i then painted the dreads black as a test. looked pretty rad

photo9-3.jpg



so while i finished latexing the mouth, waiting for it to dry i moved on to redrawing the "muscles" on the head (or whatever they are called on the wolf haha) and started cutting out the lines to create ridges and bumps of the mucles.

photo25.jpg

photo26.jpg

photo6-3.jpg


i then started cutting the damage on the left side of the wolfs face

photo5-3.jpg


at this point i thought it looked pretty rad haha. but i knew it needed horns. so i started making them one by one. i kinda went for my own P2/Wolf look here so i just started adding what looked good to me and came up with this

photo4-5.jpg


Then of course started latexing it when i liked it

photo3-6.jpg

(oh yeah right, i added the teeth after painting them pale yellow white with acrylic paint)
photo2-8.jpg


my Girlfriends little brother had a blast with it.

heres how it looks fromt he side. i love that lifted horn look. adds a nice curve to the head that points up at the end

photo-7.jpg

photo1-3.jpg


at this point i got sidetracked decorating the house with decorations. so i decided to mess with the fog machine and catch these photos :eek:

photo14-2.jpg

photo20-2.jpg

(it was outside so the fog didnt stay to well like it does inside)

anyway this is what i came up with so far
ea1a202b.jpg


i added more dreads then test painted and came up with this... it was ok i guess. i really need an air brush

d3468f5f.jpg

b9df2c69.jpg


side view again. i Love the head angles
8a01f2ce.jpg


more temporary dreads (i will be purchasing some "seconds" dreads from casey soon)
b3162379.jpg



at this point i added the bio with magnets

e5045048.jpg

1b2f8c09.jpg


anyway. i decided to get some spray cans and use acrylic paints and sprayed this up. I'm actually pretty happy with it enough to want to permawet the paintjob. but i dont have any. does anyone know permawet alternative? (i didnt find an answer on the search)

71e84f02.jpg


anyway all in all it came out awesome I think. At least good enough to satisfy me for halloween (im pretty picky on things looking at LEAST pretty decent or good haha)


Thanks everyone for watching and dont forget to look at the Bio to mask Magnet tutorial!!
