i've seen quite a few people cosplaying as Rorschach as various conventions, a big issue with the masks that have the thermal changing paint / ink seems to be that once you're in full costume, around other people and your body heat increases the mask becomes stuck between transitions and looks very muddy...

that being said i've seen a few high quality masks pop up on ebay from time to time but they don't seem to come up too often... i'm not sure exactly what you're after in terms of the mask, i'm assuming your building a costume for movie version of Rorschach?... after a quick search online here's some items that may help with your costume...

magnoli also sells the Rorschach suit, scarf, gloves and trenchcoat

there are quite a few people on etsy who take commissions for costume's and prop's, you may be able to find someone on there who could create a more screen accurate mask... kinda depends on your overall budget and how screen accurate you're wanting your costume to be... hope this helps...

I'm actually working on this too, I should have my own thread up in a couple weeks. Getting a "screen accurate" mask is going to be tough, the mask in the movie was made out of lycra and screen printed with a canvas texture, and sewed up to Jackie Earle Haileys specs. From what I understand there was a seam running up the back and one around the ears and along the jaw line, this kept it nice and tight on his head. Then obviously they removed the seams for the movie digitally. So its tough to get it with no wrinkles and obviously you won't get the canvas texture. The best you can do is get some lycra and make one yourself, thats what I am doing and so far it looks pretty good, I got the thermochromic ink too but I have not painted it yet.
